I have WTTC for at minimum another month before I talk to to the Maternal Fetal Specialist, in the meanwhile my OB has suggested I start taking prenatals. The over the counter ones I got surprised me with 2 bottles in 1 box. 30 prenatal multivitamin tablets and 30 prenatal DHA/EPA softgels. Apparently ALOT has changed in 6 years because I don't remember all that. I am supposed to take one from each bottle daily. They both stink but the softgels really STINK (probably why I took flinstones chewables when I was preggo with my son.

Is anyone else taking prenatals? What type?

Thank you *Kiliki* for once again doing such amazing work on a siggie

I'm still breastfeeding so I take Vivitas Mom to be.

They do recommend that any woman in her "fertile years" take a prenatal. I'll likely keep taking mine even after I stop bfing..
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

I'm not very consistent but yes I am still taking prenatals, I take a natural kind, forget the name. I'm also taking probiotics and cod liver oil.

I take one once in a while. I should start with the folic acid though at the very minimum.

Thank you Vicki for my new siggy!

Im taking them still because im breastfeeding. Right now I take the vitacraft chewable prenatals and there yummy lol. I took the ones your taking now while I was ttc and during pregnancy. I had no issues with them but the chewable ones has less stuff in them compared to the one a day prenatal but I like them better while breastfeeding.
