Double the vitamins ?

Good morning ladies,

My OB told me that I could take the same vitamins as when I was pregnant with my sinlgeton.  I thought I needed more, no?  Especially after just now reading and article in a twins magazine confirming my suspicions. What gives?

BTW - this is a "temp" OB (same office), as mine is on maternity leave until end of April.

Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions?  TIA

Re: Double the vitamins ?

  • My OB also prescribed the "normal" amount as with a single baby but I have read in one of my three twins books that you should take more of certain things. But I hate taking my vitamins so I just do what my OB (whom I REALLY trust) says.
  • i took one prenatal vitamin, but an extra folic acid pill (as prescribed by my MFM.)

  • Thank you ladies - I sure appreciate the responses. I think if anything I might look into doubling up the folic acid and the iron (i'm sluggish lately). thanks again!  :o)
