    So I've been taking my prenatal vits like a good girl but I read recently that B vitamins are very important for hormones, DNA, protien and carbs, metabolism etc. etc. Today while at the pharmacy I picked up a new bottle of prenatals and an additional B complex vitamin.
    I've just spent an hour trying to find information on how much is enough/too much. I keep getting all sorts of conflicting info... which is no good. Then I wondered if there are any vitamin 'experts' here on B&B.
    Question of the day girls, how much B vitamins? Any thing I should be aware of before I start pill popping? LOL Any websites you've found helpful? Please help.

    It's not that I'm aiming to lengthen my LP per say, I'm trying to get rid of the spotting for 4days before my cycle is due. I'm hoping that the extra Bvits will help minimize that a bit.
    I've tried to google it. I keep getting very conflicting info. Some say 50mcg of B6-B12, even as low as 1.5mcg and other suggest as much as 100-200mg daily. I'm just so confused. I was thinking this morning maybe I'll just alternate the B-complex one day then the prenatal the next day. That way I won't be getting crazy amounts of the B vits in one day.
    Thanks girls.
