Ok little scary just bought the folic acid. Me and hubby have agreed I will start taking after we come bk from hol, and then start trying a few months later. Little scary that this means in 3 months time we will be trying..... Do others feel like this when they start? I'm excited but terrified!

Katy the NHS now recommends vitamin D too. If you look on the NHS choices website it should say on there how much.

Good luck. I remember buying the first pre conception vitamins over 3 years ago sad

I also bought it the other day when we did our weekly shop! :-) felt a little bit scary taking it the first time as it made it feel more real!

I loved buying my preconception vitamins. Bought my first lot in Jan, n we've only just begun TTC. Its our first month, but hoping there'll be enough required vitamins in my system if we manage to conceive smile
Good luck for when u start TTC!!

Hi, I have a pack of pregnacare at home . Made me a little giddy picking it up too grin.
When do people suggest starting to take them? I'm off the pill now and planning to start TTC in May. I was going to start taking them at about the same time but this thread makes me think maybe I should do sooner?

Sylvanas - From what I've read including on nhs site and family planning association (online), 3 months before ttc is the ideal time to start takin pre conception vitamins as then there's enough in your body for if u manage to conceive in your first month.

Thanks NurseyJay, I'll start taking them tonight then smile
