Start taking a prenatal vitamin if you haven’t already!

@Pokemon:  You can buy them over the counter. I used to take them for hair and nail growth but I wouldn’t reccomend it.

Generally speaking, prenatal vitamins you can get over the counter are comparable to what’s RX only, you just have to look at the ingredients. They will have around 60-70% vitamin A (too much vit A is bad, birth defects, etc.), 800 to 1000 mcg of folic acid, increased iron (100 to 200%), and may or may not have DHA. DHA is a good thing to have, so I would look for one with it. Besides that, just run down the list of the other vitamins like A,B,C,D,K and make sure they have 60-100% of each, as you will get most from your diet anyways. Hope this helps!

@Pokemon:  Depending on where you live, but the Kroger and Meijer around me give out prenatals for free with a prescription. The ones I take don’t have DHA in them so I buy a DHA supplement that is about $12 a month.

RX means prescription (versus over the counter)
