Hey ladies! I was hoping to get some advice on B12. I am a vegetarian and I have an app that gives tips for TTC and it said that because I'm vegetarian I need to watch B12 closely but didn't give any suggested food item. Any ideas?

If you're a vegetarian you may need to be supplimented. I had a B12 deficiency and had to get monthly shots. B12 is very important and being deficient in it can be very serious. It comes from animals though. You can get some from eggs but the eggs also contain something that intereferes with absorption so you won't get enough.
