  • lol, double check with the doc, but I don't think you'll remotely need them. Those prenatals take care of pretty much everything. GL!

  • I think your prenatal vitamin takes care of it all, I think the vitamin C pill would just be wasted b/c your body can only absorb so much of extra vitamins.... not to mention I've never heard of an OB recommending an extra C pill.... good luck

  • Yes, but it's unneccessary.

  • You don't want to take too much vitamin C while you're pregnant. Double check with your doctor, but there is only so much that's safe while you're pregnant. Normally, your body can flush it out, since it's water soluble, but your body processes things differently while pregnant. There's no need to take extra; there's plenty in your prenatal, especially if you're also getting enough fruits and veggies in your diet.
