  • It think it was around 8 weeks. I also take extra folic acid since I am having twins.

  • I started before I got pregnant. But vitamins are not miracle drugs, they help but do not prevent. I wouldn't stress about it. I have twins who were preemies and have developmental delays, I also have an older daughter that is healthy and exceptionally bright. Unless you are malnourished you are likely to get all you need from food. The vitamins just help insure that you aren't missing something.

  • I was around 7 weeks when I had my first appointment and was given samples to try out and then a prescription a week later. I had previously been taking a woman's vitamin, calcium, and vitamin C, though for years.
