Hey. First time posting here, I thought I ought to make it something other people could use too. I'm in my 3rd month. I never took vitamins or supplements with my son, however I did with my daughter because my doc reccomended I do so. They were both perfectly healthy. I've had miscarries. I just wasn't sure whether I should consider taking vitamins this time or not, and if so, which ones to take. I started spotting about a month ago, which has never happened to me before in preg. I saw my temporary doctor (until mine is back in town), and he said he had no expertise and that I should decide for myself or consult with my regular doctor. Can anybody give me ups and downs or something like that? Gracias. :wink:
If you have a good diet, then you should just take folic acid. But if you tend to miss some meals then please take the vitamins, they will help your baby and yourself. Goodluck and congrats on your child
I cant take the incredibly horse pills (maternity viatmins lol) I choked on them twice and never again, I talked to dr and he said I could take childrens vitamins as well asked that I take folic acid on the side.
Folic acid is the big #1 but if your like me and cant take maternity just opt for childrens vitamins...
