TTC Confessions September
13
Wed, 09-07-2011 - 5:57pm

We used to have a monthly confessional on here, and somewhere along the way it kinda went away...

So, my TTC confession this month is that I haven't taken my prenatal vitamins or the extra folic acid in a few weeks. I got into one of those "why bother, it won't work anyway" moods. Now I'm ticked at myself for not doing it. SMH.

I've done that too. Don't feel too bad. I don't have any current confessions. But way back 3 yrs ago after DH's vasectomy reversal, we almost couldn't wait the 6 weeks recovery to DTD. We were still newlyweds. We almost completed the deed and then decided it was too risky. DH learned that there really is such thing as blueb@!!s. That was a surprise/embarrassment!

Confession - I'm worse than you, Court, I have only JUST started back up taking Folic Acid as of last night and I don't take any specific vitamins. I also started taking a Complete-B vitamin last night, so I get about 800mg of the Folic Acid between that and the separate Folic Acid. But, I don't take any other multi-vitamin. All the prenatals make me sick and although I SHOULD at least take a children's chewable, I would prefer not to.

Tee, I used to have some REALLY adverse reactions to multi vitamins and prenatal vitamins- as in 1/2 hr after taking it I would be in the restroom with severe diarhhea. :(

the ones that seem to work the best for me are the plain old Target prenatal, the rainbow brand from walmart that's a vegan-friendly design, and a woman's multi (slow release, no iron) from GNC.

I can't afford the GNC one anymore (darned economy!), but the Target and Walmart ones work well, and I got pg on the rainbow one...

Confession: the doxycycline is making me sick to my stomach and yesterday I threw up, Blech. I asked my hubby if it made him sick and he said no. This morning he called mr and told me he had gotten sick too today. Dyk it made me a little happy that he is suffering a little too? Yes, yes, I know... I will be going to that bbq pit in the nether regions for that kind of thinking. Lol...

Eat something first! Makes all the difference. We both have to take it before each IVF, and I had to take it after my D&C and during my endometritis.I promise. Eat something carby.

It says to take it on an empty stomach one hour before eating or two to three hours after eating, and not to take it within 2 hours of taking antacids, or a vitamin w/minerals or iron.

My RE said it was ok to take with a snack, but you should do what yours says is best.

Do you have that one there at home? Does it say "wheat/gluten-free" on the label? I end up having breathing problems with the prescription prenatals and the ones I bought from the grocery store were obnoxious. I had to take like 3 or 4 of them during the day. I don't have time to remember to take things that often every day. LOL!

Are you taking the doxycycline with food? If not, try it. If so, try taking it without food. Sometimes those meds are so troublesome with whether you have food in your stomach or not. Feel better!
