No vitamins — The Bump
1st Trimester

No vitamins

I've been taking 5mg folic acid for this pregnancy and no vitamins as my doctor told me the folic acid was more important due to my previous baby having a birth defect. I got my scan in few days and starting to worry about not taking the vitamins. I've been so anxious last few weeks. Anyone else not taken vitamins during 1st trimester & been fine? 

Re: No vitamins

  • If you're anxious about it then why not just take vitamins? Is there a reason that you're actively avoiding them?
  • Vitamins have folic acid in them

  • No  reason, to be honest only now I'm thinking about it, I've been more concerned about my folic acid. And my doctor put me on the highest dose.  I ain't seen my midwife yet as she is ill and i got my scan on Monday so its a bit late now. 
  • So take the vitamins...
  • You still have a whole pregnancy left. It's still a good time to start taking vitamins.
