Hi mummies, can share what prenatal vitamins are you taking now?
Hmm is anyone taking ferrous gluconate? Cause i went polyclinic and they prescribe me with this instead of folic acid.
I had asked my gyane, but she didn't recommend any vits or calcium to me.
is that normal?
Some gynaes only give folic acid and will tsart vits in 2nd trimester.
oh, so there is nothing unusual about it. good to know
I've been taking folic acid (dosage: 5mg) and CoQ10 (dosage: 100-150mg).
Hubby is taking Centrum multivit.
I was given New Obimin Multivits.
Sand, why is your husband also taking vits?
My gyane has also given me some multi vits and calcium now and has asked me to start taking them in a couple of weeks.
hubby has been taking it since we are trying to concieve-ing..... i guess is to continue setting good foundation for future baby making... =P

hmm... makes sense
fish oil a must? what the pros in taking that?
so i guess folic acid and fish oil are the 2 most beneficial supps?
my doc has prescribed me one calcium and two multi-vit supplements daily. one of those multi-vit supplements contains fish oil as well.
and she has also asked me to stop taking folic acid now.
so its two multi-vit supplements and one calcium tablet that i take daily.

i get my vitamins from iherb, much much much cheaper
gynae just prescribed 3 mths worth of multivits for me. Costs way cheaper too than what I bought previously. Hehe!
Congrats mummies-to-be! Be careful with the unreliable source of vitamins you find online. You wouldn't want anything bad to happen to yourself and your baby right?
Most of my pregnant friends take this pharmaceutical-grade supplement from the USA. They had no nausea, swollen limbs, hairfall, acne, backaches, etc. Some were still running around until their last hour before birth! Those who had conceived, have complete and healthy babies; some had thick hair, seldom fall sick, and are fast-learners. Recently, I got to know President Obama is also taking the same brand. In case you would like to find out more, feel free to PM me. Take care and see ya!
