Hi, I'm a graduate from this board and am just popping in to post this article link for all you TTC ladies. The upshot is that vitamin E, whether a diet rich in v. E or if you take v. E pills, may actually cause heart defects in babies (up to a 9x increased risk!). This really worries me as I took a lot of vitamin E during pgcy (not more than recommended dose though).

I don't know if this means no prenatals anymore, but I am going to ask my dr about it the next time we TTC!
