I just bought a bunch of supplements to boost my health while TTC and DH thinks I'm nutty says I'm just "being an American" (um sorry I AM American! Can't help it!)
I'm planning to add in b12 (I'm vegetarian), krill oil for omega 3s, vitamin D and folinic acid (like folic acid but supposedly better for body to absorb), and a general prenatal. Have also been taking folic acid irregularly for the last month or so.
I took a conception formula. If you're going to take a bunch of different ones, just make they'll all still be safe when you do get pregnant. The main thing to look at is vitamin A content.
Folic acid should ideally be consistently taken for three months pre-conception. Vitamin D is recommended throughout pregnancy so wouldn't hurt before. A conception or pregnancy multivitamin would cover you for these.
I had a mc in March 2013 and so wanted to give my body the best chance possible to get pregnant and help the baby with a boast in vitamins etc. So before getting BFP (right through mc too) this month I was taking: - Floradix for iron - Viridian Fertility Pro-Conception vitamins (has alots of good stuff including required a,out of vitamin D, Folic etc.) - Sola Homocysteine modulators -Omega 3 Krill Oil
All the vitamins are natural with no nasty chemical compounds..
Following BFP I replaced Viridian Fertility Pro-Conception vitamins with Solar Pre-natal vitamins. Still taking all the others as well.
I also made my other half take Viridian Fertility (for men) Potency tablets whilst ttc.
I am taking Pregnacare Conception, vitamin B6, Agnus Cactus, baby aspirin and Ferrograd C (slow-release iron + vitamin C). The iron isn't really for conception, just because I get too tired to survive the day without it!
I also take Robitussin a couple of hours before DTD.
