my fs said not to take prenatal vitamins (he said just take folate) but it seems in all the threads i read on here people are always talking about taking them and which brands are best, leading me to believe their drs recommend them. also, in every baby book and many mag articles i've read they always say start taking usually 6 mons before ttc???? i was really suprised at this!
we were talking about blood tests and such earlier in the appt and i brought up hearing about tests for killer antibodies or something i read that make your body acidic... and then later when i brough up vitamins he said they could make your body acidic. anyone else's dr tell them this???
i don't have the best nutrition, so i was thinking prenatals would be really beneficial. plus in all the books i've read, they say they help support the baby and avoid birth defects. i know folate is the major one, but i'd want to prepare my body the best way i can (well, if i can even get pregnant -- have some issues)
