Avatar f tn Hi, Ask your GP, from what i have read Vitamin A has to be taken in small doses as it can harm the unborn baby - avoid Vitamin A rich foods as well such as Liver, some types of fish. Good luck.
Avatar n tn anyway, now I am really freaked out about having given my child a birth defect. I didn't realize until I read a pregnancy book that vitamin A can be very harmful. Does anyone have any insight on this topic? I could never live with myself knowing that I may have caused harm to my baby.
Avatar n tn The 10000 IU limit is for preformed Vitamin A. (Personally, my prenatal had 4000 IU of Vitamin A in it, and my midwife said that was fine) I would call your doctor if you're still unsure and speak to them about it.
Avatar f tn I read vitamin A is bad for pregnancy. Is that true??
Avatar f tn You want to avoid stuff like liver. I researched it months ago, but if you Google vitamin A and do a little searching around you'll find stuff about how your body absorbs it and which things are good during pregnancy. I wish I could remember more about what it said, but it put my mind at ease at least. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn I did drink Vitamin Water a few times, but I avoided the ones with vitamin A. I'd ask your doctor about it--it may be harmless if you only have a couple, but I don't know how much vitamin A is too much.

546318 tn?1328197235 Hi ladies, just been doing some research on Vitamin A (retinol) and I think results are shocking.. I know Dr's tell us not to eat liver during pregnancy as very high levels of vit A but I can't believe the other products that also contain quite high levels also. Experts say pregnant women should not consume more than 3300 IUs of Vitamin A (retinol) per day. More than that may cause birth defects, allegedly.
Avatar f tn I started taking a 100 mg vitamin b6 supplement daily while trying to conceive in addition to my prenatal which also contains 15 mg of b6. I read that b6 helps increase your cervical mucus. I got pregnant the cycle I started taking the vitamin b6 supplement. Can I continue taking 115 mg of b6 now that I am pregnant or do I need to taper off or stop taking it altogether? I'm concerned about possible effects a high dosage of b6 has on pregnancy and developing baby.
Avatar n tn Only need to take them if your deficient I was deficient before pregnancy so I take a 1 a day capsule cant even taste it

Avatar f tn I can not remember the name of it but I've watch quite a bit of pregnancy vlogs on YouTube and one that I watched this lady had trouble taking pregnancy vitamins. But she searched the web a lot and found this pregnancy vitamin spray that you spray under your tongue 5x a day. She said she did 2 in the morning, 1 after lunch, and 2 before bed. She said she loved it! and its $10.
Avatar f tn I am not pregnant now. I have a son of 15 months and i had a miscarige 3 months ago. the problem was same with my first pregnancy. when every i take prenatal vitamins it give me bad lower body pain. i have tried different brands also. what should i do?
Avatar f tn This is really a question for your doctor, as they should be the only one making medication recommendations for you, but as far as vitamin C and pregnancy, it should be safe, I'd check with your doctor especially if you are on any other meds that could be effected by the excess vitamin C before you start any.

Avatar f tn With my first pregnancy when i took my prenatal vitamin in the morning I would be sick all day, and I would vomit and just want to sleep cause I was real sick...then I switched to taking them at night after I have eaten all day and everything...it was much better, i didn't get sick anymore. Now I'm pregnant with my 2nd child and I just take them at night.
