nutrition and expecting moms

hey this article looks pretty informative

http://bmb.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/reprint/55/3/499.pdf

Getting vitamins in order - where to start?

Hi
for a long time I've taken alpha-lipoic acid, high dose b vitamins, high dose niacin about once a week to produce flushing, high dose vitamin c, evening primrose oil, fish oils, and vitamin d (only 400 iu). Also take magnesium but have run out recently.
