Prenatal vitamin, 5000 iu/day of vitamin D3 (I can tell it really helps with my mood and I’ve successfully avoided seasonal depression this year, win!), CoQ10 for egg quality and heart health, milk thistle for liver health and I’ve found it helps with ovulation, and Ovasitol for my PCOS. When I remember I’ll take magnesium, but the pills are huge so I haven’t been taking it as regularly lately.

I have been taking prenatals since December. The kind I take have quite a bit of folate (folic acid) and DHA which is great. We probably won’t ttc officially until June or so. But a Bee actually suggested that any woman who is having regular sex should probably be on prenatals and it makes sense. They have almost everything a normal multivitamin has, just some extra ingredients. 

I used to take a hair and nails vitamin and cranberry chewables, but honestly, I didn’t really see a difference so I don’t take them anymore.

I take an amazing multi vitamin.  It’s really expensive but in the 6 months I’ve been taking it, I never feel tired. Also I’ve been told it’s good to keep your body in check before ttc

I take greens and fiber to help with digestion and to get micronutrients (from the greens, not the fiber). 

I take collagen peptides for my joint health and skin. I used to suffer from acne and ever since I switched to a new type of collagen peptides, my skin has been so clear, and it’s actually helped my scars fade. My nails and hair have never been healthier either! Plus, it has really helped my hip pain, and has helped my husband’s plantar fasciitis. I would HIGHLY suggest collagen peptides – it’s seriously made such a huge difference for me. I take Bowmar Nutrition collagen (a majority of the suppluments I take are from them as well – I love all of their products)

I also take a multivitamin, use a whey protein powder to supplument my protein needs, and use preworkout on occasion for the days I really don’t feel like working out. Also BCAAS during or after any of my workouts that are high volume.

Prenatal vitamins, DHA, B12, Iron + Calcium, Vitamin D, and a probiotic. My diet is mostly vegetarian and I’m anemic, which is why I take the DHA, B12, and the Iron + Calcium. I was taking a hair, skin, & nails vitamin but I ran out and haven’t ordered more yet.

Just a multivitamin and an iron supplement.
