Prenatals - did you take them?

posted 8 years 3 months ago
How diligent were you with taking prenatal vitamins before conceiving?

I've taken them both times I've been trying for a child as soon as we started trying. I definitely missed days here and there just from forgetfulness, and when I was pregnant with my daughter I felt so sick some days that I just couldn't take them because I knew I'd be sick! But apart from that I stuck to taking them.

How about you?

I didn't do great. My midwife actually told me to try taking them but if I was too sick, to just make sure I was getting a good amount of nutrients in my food and not worry about them. I did a little better at taking some other liquid vitamins I had. And I ate a little better during pregnancy than I did when not pregnant, so I figured that all helped me out with missing the prenatals.

Hi, actually, I do have vitamins supplements even when I'm not conceiving. I usually take vitamin c. When I found out that I was pregnant, I usually follow my doctors advice and purchase all the prescribed vitamins and healthy foods that I should have.

I religiously take my supplements. I take it after breakfast. If it becomes a routine, chances are you will always take it at the same time or be reminded.
