I have left my pregnancy vitamins at home and am on holiday now til the end of August. Do you think I should go out and buy some or no need? I think I remember reading something about having less need after the first trimester. I'm 28 weeks.

I was told by the doctor that I didn't need to keep taking the pregnancy vitamins after the first trimester, but the MW has since told me it's good to keep taking them because it helps to keep the levels of things like iron up.

I think I'd go and buy some just to make sure your levels stay nicely up.

Thanks. I have looked into it and they don't sell them in France, they need to be prescribed by a doctor hmm. I'm getting some brought over by someone who is joining us after the weekend. Thanks for your reply!
