Ok can anyone give me info on what Multivitamins are recommended while TTC, pregnant, or breastfeeding. I want to know what specifically is needed and what is considered too much and unsafe of each vitamin?

And also do I need to be careful about what I eat if I am on vitamins so that I don't over do it?

Prenatels are the best while pregnant and breastfeeding but I couldn't take them made me ill so I took a mulivitamin with Calicum and Omega 3.  I did hear from a Dr on the radio that any mulitvitamin with Cal and Omega 3 is good to take.  As far as I know if your body doesn't need it, it will not use it....so I do not think you have to worry about eating to much veges...but make sure you eat alot of fiber becasue the vitamins can constipate you....

Yep.  My doc put me on prenatals when we started TTC.  He also had me take folic acid supplement since that is wonderful for brain development in the baby - you wouldn't know you are pregnant when the system for the baby's brain is developing so hence taking them BEFORE you know.  Keep your diet healthy obivously.  And you may need iron, but not until after you are into your pregnancy.
