Just found out I'm pg, what amount of vits to take?

Postby Wonderfulworld » Sun Nov 19, 2006 1:38 pm

Hi
I'm just delighted, found out I'm pg. Was on Copaxone, but had a hunch I was pg so I gave it up about 6 days after conception, so I'm not worried about that.

I'm taking a general pregnancy multi vit/mineral.
But I'd also been taking 1,000 mcg Vit D - should I continue? Or is that too much during pg, does anyone know? Am taking calcium too, but I will continue that as on best bet diet (now starting to eat a little cheese as I'm craving it).

hiya ww! congratulations!!! the consensus appears to be 4000IU daily for vitamin D whether from supplement or other sources. i couldn't recommend supplement amounts of anything specifically without knowing what your serum values were. but 1000 IU D3, i can't see that being too much, no way.

anyway congrats again!

Thanks for the replies, I have decided to go see a nutritionist and make sure I am getting all the right stuff.
I want to stick to BBD as I feel well, but I think seeing a nutritionist will set my mind at ease,
thanks again
