Avatar f tn folic acid is needed and is in prenatals so that's safe for sure.
Avatar m tn but many docs have found that improving our diets (veggies,fruits, low in sugar, white starches, no smokind/drinking, etc) can strengthen the body..like taking vitamin C for colds/folic acid during pregnancy. Unfortunately, a large amount of medical doctors don't recognize the validity of "natural"medicine and there isn't money/profit for drug companies. My gyn recommended folic acid and L-lysine..
Avatar n tn so my doctor did give me some prenatal vitamins that I refuse to take everyday. They're way too big so I'll buy my own.
Avatar f tn you can get iron supplements over the counter too though. my last pregnancy I took 2 Flintstone with iron vitamins a day.
Avatar m tn For example, women with diabetes must be especially careful about keeping their blood glucose levels under control, both before they begin trying to conceive and during their pregnancy. Abnormal levels increase the risk of birth defects and other complications. This is also a good time to talk with your health care provider about other habits that can pose a risk to your baby, such as drinking alcohol or smoking.
Avatar n tn Can anyone please suggest what the best diet and vitamins / mineral supplements are during this preg. period or what should I take and what to stop eating so that I can have a healthy, brillant baby and a safe delivery as well. Hope to hear from a samaritan out there !!!!!
Avatar f tn Make sure you take the vitamin with iron. You need the rest but you really need iron during pregnancy. Not taking the proper suppliments can lead to birth defects.
Avatar f tn My doctor advises the Citracal Citranatal family of vitamins. They have different vitamins with DHA, Folic Acid and all the necessary vitamins for you and the baby. Here is the link for you to check it out. http://citranatal.com/Index.

Avatar n tn Sorry to jump in but i have a question on PN vitamins. too. I have been taking Target brand for over a year, just got pg, and Dr. said it didnt have enough iron. BUT it has the same amount as the samples she gave me for prescription. I know folic acid is the number one thing you want. Anyone have any info on this. I know I could do a web search, but thought I ask the "experts" :) Also, anyone on here ever had trouble with prescription PN vit? vs over the counter?

Avatar n tn I got terrible headaches starting at about the third month of my pregnancy through the end. I would suggest having your eyes checked. During pregnancy, weather you've needed glasses before or not, your eye sight can change drastically. My optimologist changed my Rx twice, once at about month four and then again about three months after giving birth. Although expensive it was a good investment.
Avatar n tn For the purpose of consuming essential fatty acids, especially Omega 3, is it safe to take PrimaCare mineral supplements with my prenatal vitamins. These mineral supplements have 1 mg of folic acid and some iron on top 800 mcg of folic acid and 28g of iron included in the generic OTC prenatals that I use. Is this overdose of folic acid and iron harmful?
Avatar f tn do some deep breathing, have some chamomile tea, and try hard not to stress about it. Stress hormones are not good for your baby.
Avatar n tn hi i was wondering my dr put me on prometrium during this pregnancy has anyone else takin it while pregnate and had a succussful pregnacy the bottle says not to take during pregnancy im confussed please help
Avatar f tn Try getting prenatals without iron ...
Avatar n tn Time is going to tell you what is going on. Are you taking new vitamins or supplements, sometimes they change the color of urine.
146191 tn?1236881412 are you suppose to take the pre-natals during your entire pregnancy? i am in my ninth month (woo!) and just wondering if you're suppose to take them the entire time or if its just extra important while trying and in early pregnancy.
Avatar f tn I had linea nigra during my last pregnancy, but not the first. It was pretty dominant (I thought). I'm fair skinned, but tan well. Lauren (the last baby) is very fair, but still tans. She burns quicker than Kathryn (the first baby), that's about the only diff. Didn't ever read it was associated with the complexion of the baby.
Avatar f tn I am worried if there is any nutritions or supplements i shall take during this period before it is too late. For now, i am only taking Folic Acid twise a week. 5 milligams is written on it. It was prescriped by the general doctor for this month only. Appreciate your advice..
