Taking vitamins while TTC


I went to the doctor today, told her we have decided to try for a baby.

I knew i needed Folic acid, which she prescribed to me.

I take vitamins,(multi viatmins and Omega 3 oils), basically because i do not have a large variety of tastes, im a very fussy eater-hence the extra vitamins. On the backs of these it says do not take if TTC or if you are pregnant.

She told me not to take the Omega 3's and told me i didnt really need the multi vitamins. so i asked if it was still ok to take them and she said "yes but i wouldnt prescribe them to anyone TTC"

So i dont know if i should leave the vitamins altogether or not, she didnt seem overly keen on them but didnt say no either ???

Hi

I would say if she didnt sound too keen to not take any.

Have you ever heard of pregnacare conception? I take these and its kind of a multi vit for ttc? It has more than just folic acid in it, so maybe try them!

I have to say they have made me feel much better in myself.

Also pregnacare have website and the reviews on it r promising! x

I read that vitamin A isn't good for you when you're trying to conceive or pregnant - the pregnacare conception doesn't have vitamin A in it!

I have actually heard Omega 3 and 6 are very beneficial when ttc.
