@MRS-K: its ideal that you take them during childbearing yrs so ive heard. I think its good you are taking them now I started when I got my BFP

@MRS-K: I started taking them once I saw those double lines. Before then I just took plain ol’ folic acid

@MRS-K: that is very good! The most important part is that you have at least 600mg of Folic Acid in your system while you’re off of birth control– FA is crucial in spine development from the get-go, so it will help from the instant you get pregnant!

When I told the GYN I was going off the pill last May but didn’t want to start trying until this year she wrote me a prescription for prenatals and told me to get started so I think it is great for you to start taking them now to get in the routine and get it in your system already.

A year ago… despite still being on BC and not planning on TTC for two more years…
It’s part of my daily routine now, and I wanted to start taking a multivitamin anyway. I figure an early start can’t hurt 🙂

You’re fine! Ideally you start taking them a couple months prior to starting to TTC to build up your levels, but plenty of women don’t start until they know they’re pregnant. So just continue to take them from here on out!

I took them right when I got off the pill (then got pregnant a few mo later)

I started in May when I went off the pill even though we weren’t TTC until the fall.

My doctor recommended starting them at least 2 months in advance of TTC.

@MRS-K: no worries. My doc said it’s fine. I just starting taking them a week ago, and we are TTC now. Do you take a prenatal with DHA? I don’t and I’m reading that a lot of people do look for it in a prenatal. Wondering what type you are taking?
