I don't think they're recommended in pregnancy. Maybe something to do with the vitamin A content. I took the pregnancy ones which have the right amount of Folic Acid in them while I was pregnant. You can always go back to the multi vits afterwards. HTH. Also... Congratulations!!
Too much vitamin A must be avoided as is toxic to the baby, ( just asked my husband who is docter) random quote that he just said also is that polar bears are the only species to be able to take vit a in pregnancy how weired is that?
thanks ladies. I am taking Folic acid. I did wonder about the vit A in multi-vitamin. I did stop taking it when I got BFP but just thought I would check with the wise women of mumsnet that I wasn't being over-protective
i would say that if you eat a balanced diet, then no, same when you are not pregnant, but folic acid definitely and taking a natural supplement to keep iron levels up, like spatone or floridex is probably a good idea
but if you are going to take something when pregnant, needs to be designed for pregnancy
I believe polar bear liver is toxic because there is so much Vit A in it, so don't eat any, ladies, OK?
Is standard multi-vit really too much A for pg? I got through all my pgs without being bunged up by nasty iron tablets just with OTC multi-vit+iron, taken with oj. And I used to eat liver once a week because you did then.
