Prenatal vitamins pros and cons

Common Questions and Answers about Prenatal vitamins pros and cons


Avatar f tn I would definitely call your obgyn. Just to be safe bc I was doing that at first with both prenatal & folic acid just bc I was anal that my baby be the healthiest possible but I was told not to take more than the recommended dose bc too much of certain vitamins can be bad for you & also cause other "rough" problems like digestion problems, etc. I'm not sure how it affects the baby at all but I would definitely just speak with the doc.
Avatar f tn I do, some days I forget or can't remember if I already took one in the day so I may skip a day here and there. I dunno if you're supposed to, they say they help. But then again eons ago we didn't have them and most of the population came out fine. If you're unsure about a brand or just the whole idea I would do some research and discus everything with your doc. I'm sure they'd be able to give you the pros and cons of taking and not taking them.
7677085 tn?1395374075 I need a list of pros and cons of a stretch and sweep/sweeping the membranes. I have an appointment tomorrow and I've been having early labor type contractions for days now. I'd really just like to get things moving. Positive and negative real life experiences would be great as well. I'd really like to make an informed decision. Thanks ladies!

4241272 tn?1357571660 I don't know much about it. My husband says it is important to have our son circumcised. He says it's cleaner and healthier, and that it's safer to do now than when he is older.

1003407 tn?1250296361 I think emotionally i wouldn't be able to handle the natural route, but tryin to prepare myself in the case that it does happen between now and monday. guess i'll have to wait and see what this weekend brings and see the OB on monday afternoon. The waiting game is horrid. Sorry for both of you. . Also; congrats to you both. Wish you lots of luck and good health.. Thanks for the replies, kim..

I tried with my daughter and was not successful only bc i waited till i left hospital to try so she already got use to the bottle. Def going to start as soon as this baby pops out this time!!

94902 tn?1330479667 I am now estimated 6 weeks pregnant, and am having to make the decision about wether or not to come off my meds. I am in the process of weighing my pros and cons, but wonder if any other moms have been on any meds while pregnant. I would appreciate any input.
Avatar f tn That was not my question, my question is what the pros and cons are. You don't know my medical issues or complications, so if my OB thinks it's a complication, then it's a complication.
Avatar f tn Pros: eases the pain. Cons:confines you to bed, can slow labor because you can be too numb, which can lead to induction drugs and stresses out baby, leading to csection, can cause permanent nerve damage. Birth is hard. But drugs or no drugs you will have a readonly to be happy at the end and you kinda forget about the reat.
Avatar f tn If you know you can do it without the epidural then I'd suggest you not getting it i had a csection and didnt have a choice now my back bothers me in the spot where they stuck the needle in it feels like a tooth ache and it took them several times and 2 anesthesiology to get it in the right spot which was the worst part of the whole thing
Avatar m tn We tried Ritalin and Concerta and one created a zombie and the other a sleepless child who was very angry all the time. We have been using Stratera for almost two years and we think it's just wonderful. My son his seeing the doc everything 3 months, but that medication does not stop his growth, he is not a zombie, he is still a clown and he loves to tease and joke around. It is one pill a day and we noticed the effects to last for + - 12 hrs.
