    I started us all on vit D a couple of months ago, and have noticed an improvement in overall health, the kids are coming home with less bugs and not passing them around at much. We use a calc+D supp.

    My Vitamin D is depleted, its the lowest the Dr has ever seen dispite being in Africa all year last year (well 3 months ha ha) and in QLD 2 months this year... I just dont absorb the sun I guess?

    I am 14 weeks almost and have beenb on Vitamin D from day one. My private OBYN reccomends it and my general public GP does as well, so i have 2 of my fav Dr's saying its ok.

    Vitame D deficiency has also been linked to miscarriage. My miscarriage specialist put me on 2000IU as my levels were 40 (should be 125 ish during pregnancy). Just make sure you take vit D3 not D2 as the body doesn't absorb it as well. Taking calcium and magnesium at the same time will also increase absorption.

    When I was confirmed pregnant at 6 weeks my Blood Vit D Levels came back at 16, so I was started on Osti Vit -D (+the normal preg vits) and for the next couple months I was taking a double dose, I have to state that since my levels became almost normal (above 70) I have found that I have not had the extreme bone tiredness I suffered in early pregnancy,(extreme MS and lethargy) so from me I would state to definately take it as I found that it really helped my energy levels so that now at 34 weeks I am still working full time and am not tired.
