Hi How long did everyone take pregnancare for? I entered my second trimester today and some people have said that I should stop taking it now. But others said keep on with it. Will it do any harm for me to keep taking it? Surely its better to carry on than stop as it can't do any harm to get extra vitamins can it?? X
I stopped some point in 2nd trimester . At my first HV appointment was asked if I had taken prenatal vitamins, told her when I'd stopped, and baby now has to take vitamin d drops! I'd never heard that advice when I was pregnant (to continue all the way through).
I intend to take them my whole pregnancy and then move onto the breast feeding ones afterwards. My thinking is that if my diet is lacking in anything at least I know the baby is getting what it needs from the supplements. Sometimes its hard to make sure your diet includes absolutely everything. It gives me piece of mind when I have a bad day and comfort eat a naughty dinner!
