Is anyone taking supplemental vitamin D? There is NO sunlight lately and I'd like to make sure I am getting some vitamin D.

I keep reading we should take 4,000 IU's. But prenatals only have 400 ius!

Sorry they won't let me use links because I'm new to the board but google vitamin d and pregnancy and you'll see what I mean.

Should I up to 4000? I'm 11 weeks and worried about the last 10 with so little sunshine!!!

I was taking 5,000 IU/day, and my midwife told me to up it to 10,000 IU.

I take 10,000 iu (plus, depending on whether or not I'll be out and about) in additional to my vitamin k-2

I take 10,000 iu. I get the kind that comes in a dropper, so I just put a couple of drops in my cup of water when I think about it.

I also read a study last week that showed a possible link between maternal Vit D levels and later autism or PDD dx for the child. It was just a preliminary study, so I'm not sure how accurate it will end up being. But even if not, it's well known that most everyone in the US (and other developed countries) are woefully deficient in Vit D.
