There should be some VitB6 in your prenatal, but a little extra probably won’t hurt anything, I just know that some gals on here have sited that too much VitB6 can possibly lead to a greater risk of miscarriage (no idea if this is true or not) but I think they said more than 100 mg per day may be harmful.  You could try an extra 50 mg tab a day, maybe? Some say it is supposed to help with morning sickness, too.  

I know it’s hard, but try and relax because you are basically already doing everything you can to prevent a m/c, but I know how you feel about the terror and sadness associated with seeing so many other ladies go through it.  We lost so many on our September board, too, and it worried me so much and made me so very sad for them. 🙁 The unfortunate reality is that a statistical (too big :'( ) number of all pregnancies end in an early loss, the process of a baby forming is such a complicated one and so much can go wrong early. At the same time, however, it goes completely right a lot of the time, too.  Hang in there, each week and each milestone makes the worry a little less, but it never really goes away! I’m assuming when our babies are in our arms and not our bellies, the worry level won’t be any less, either. 😉

I don’t know about miscarriages but we are ttc and I take a B50 complex to lengthen my Luteal Phase. It works too! It lengthened my LP by 3 days. If you are worried I’m sure a B50 supplement wouldn’t hurt but like cowgirlace said, be careful not to overdo it!

I don’t know about miscarriage, but there should be some in your prenatal.  Also, if you go on Diclectin (a common morning sickness medication – I’m still on it at 20 weeks) vitamind b6 is one of the main ingredients in that.  (10mg B6 and an antihistamine in each pill and you take like 4 per day).  So, I would say it’s definitely safe to take a little extra, BUT if you do end up being prescribed a morning sickness medication, make sure that you mention that you’re supplementing, because excess (I’ve read over 100mg/day is the top limit, but check with your doctor) B6 can cause neurological issues in YOU.  So if you’re taking 40mg in your diclectin, and a prenatal, and a supplement (lots I saw when I was looking at just taking B6 for the morning sickness wer 50G), and whatever comes in your food, it could be too much.
