The Bump Baby Registry
Now is the perfect time to start your Baby Registry!START A REGISTRY
I figured I’d kick off our first product spotlight! I posted a proposed schedule for each week, please check it out and see if you think we should adjust it at all!
Each week we'll spotlight a new category of product. Feel free to comment on these threads throughout your time at the board, not just during its week in the spotlight, if you discover something new OR are new to the board. This week we're talking.... Vitamins!
FTMs are encouraged to ask questions & STM/+s encouraged to share their knowledge based on experience. You can use any or all the prompts relevant to you below to share info in an easy-to-read format. Pictures/screen grabs, if put in spoilers, are welcome!
For all...What brand prenatal vitamins are you taking & why?
For STMs/STM+s...Are you taking the same vitamins you have w/ previous pregnancies?
Re: Product Spotlight: Vitamins
I also take Vitamin D because that was low at some point too. It’s also back to normal but my RE said to just keep taking it for now.
I did the NatureMade prenatal +DHA last pregnancy and it worked ok for me. The iron helped kick my weird red meat cravings that I got while taking a different vitamin. I’ve since learned through bloodwork that I need a LOT more iron though to alleviate my anemia, and I’m more interested in natural sourced vitamins this time around. I don’t like that the NatureMade has magnesium oxide or cyanocobalamin in it. I also took choline but don’t remember the specific brand- something generic probably!
Eugh, honestly I find it all really overwhelming. Take enough iron, but not with calcium, oh and it'll prob make your constipation worse. And lots of folic acid, but not too much, because that can be harmful. And vitamin D, but with K so it gets absorbed, and don't forget fish oils..... Some days I feel like throwing them all out and just having an apple.

i live in Europe so get these sent from the US. Anyone else in the same boat I suggest buying up bulk including for postpartum because you will pay tax to import them.
