I do have a lot of calcium in my diet. Will that affect my baby's bone structure?

In brief: Yes

Having a diet rich in calcium is ideal for the bone structure and health of both mom and baby.
If you don't eat many calcium-rich foods, a calcium supplement may be helpful.

In brief: Yes

It will affect the baby's bones in a good manner as your dietary calcium provides the building blocks for strength.
I believe there is good reason to think that dietary calcium is better absorbed than supplements, but be sure your overall intake meets your provider's recommendations.
