    I had a level of 40 and was put on 5000IU per day. The stuff they sell in chemists are usually no more than 1000IU per day and with a level that low, any naturopath will tell you you need a much higher dosage. As Elijah's mum suggested, definitely see a naturoapth especailly as you're pregnant to get the dosage right. I took 2 x 5000IU per day and after two months my levels went from 40 to about 85.

    As others have said with low vitamin D you will need to take more then 1x1000IU. 1 tablet is considered a maintenance dose for those that have been on high dose vitD for awhile to reestablish levels, and wish to prevent it dropping again.

    Thanks mums - saw a naturopath this evening - taking 2 x 1000 per day of vit d and 2 x 1000 iron plus the small dose that's included in my pregnancy diary.

    Have another blood test in a week so hopefully see a small improvement
