    Hi ladies, just wondering what vitamins you all take? I only take folic acid because the multi vitamins made me feel sick, but now I've got my BFP I was wondering if I should go back to the multi vitamins, I do have a healthy diet with plenty of fruit and veg, do you think I should stick to folic acid on it's own or try a multi again?

    I took Mumomega and they were good, expensive but good, they are in an oil capsule and they made my hair feel good, my skin wasnt dry and i was sure i was getting everything baby and i needed instead of worrying about getting the "5 a day" everyday, sometimes you may not feel like eating nevermind cooking so i think you should look for a multi vit to take.x

    hey Jodielou!!!!!!!!

    What great news congratulations on your bfp, I remember you from ttc!

    I take pregnacare, if it makes you feel sick normally though you don't stand any chance in your first tri. Try to keep a well balenced diet with 5 portions of fruit and veg a day, at least 1 meal with protein every day and foods rich in iron especially in the early weeks, then I guess if you don't take the suppliments you will have all the nutrients in your diet anyway.

    So chuffed for you hon!!

    I take Sanatogen Pro Natal with the Omega 3 supplement. Guess its just a case of trying some and see how you get on. If you're having a balanced diet then you should be ok to just stick to the folic acid.

    Perhaps try taking the vitamins at a different time, I always have mine before I go to bed which suits me.

    Congrats on your BFP :D

    Congrats btw :)

    My MW and GP told me so long as I was eating well and getting my fruit and veg and protein, then mulitvitamins really were not needed. Only if I became very sick or was on a crappy diet should I worry about taking them.

    They told me to just stick to folic acid and it was better to get nutrients from food than pills.
