Hi all
I was just wondering what vitamins do are you taking in early pregnancy. At the moment I'm taking folic acid once a day but wondered what else to take of there is anything.

Also what fruits can you eat in pregnancy?

Thanks

Vitamin D is also recommended
There aren't any contraindicated fruits as far as I know

You can eat pretty much anything in pregnancy.

There's certain foods to avoid (eg soft mould ripened cheese), and certainly there's ones to limit (eg tuna)

But if you accidentally have bit of brie, you're fine smile

Check the NHS website for guidance.

You probably want to look at multivitamins for pregnancy, unless you have good diet.

Make sure the vitamins don't have vitamin A in them though. smile

I take Pregnacare Max. Main reason is in the first trimester my diet was not at all varied (all I could eat was beige food) so felt like I needed a multivitamin!

I’m taking Pregnacare and also Vitamin D

I’m taking the seven seas pregnancy vitamins as the pregnacare can make nausea and morning sickness worse. They made me feel really sick in my first pregnancy.

Asda's own pregnancy multivitamin, Omega 3 (my protein brand), additional folic acid (prescribed), creatine monohydrate (I still powerlift). Did have extra zinc early on and D3 during the winter months.

Just folic acid and a higher dose vitamin d.

Thank for replying. Yeah I suppose I should start taking some multivitamins myself. I mean at first I was eating everything other then sweets and chocolate. Now I feel my Appetite had decreased for some weird reason. Does that usually happen?

Everyone is affected differently smile

I never lost my appetite. I never had cravings.
I was tired first and third trimester.

It's nothing to worry about 🙂

I took folic acid whilst TTC and until my booking appointment at 10 weeks when the midwife gave me pregnancy multivitamins. When they ran out I began taking pregnacare - no issues or side effects (some say it made them sick) & purchase on Amazon where slightly cheaper.

@ER20
Thank you for letting me know. Maybe I'll do what you did then and carry on taking folic acid till booking appointment

It is advised to carry on with folic acid in the early stages smile

Folic acid with vid D. All fruits are fine

Sugaryouth Wed 05-May-21 14:15:08

Took folic acid for a couple of months prior to trying, then until I got to a certain stage in pregnancy as well as vitamin D
