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.

Ok, sounds good. I'll look them up. I don't get to Wal-Mart often, but I'll see if I can get there sometime soon and maybe pick some up.

Yeah, DH was threatening to stop taking them so I told him what Chouli said- take it with a small carb snack (yup, I said that to a diabetic man...smh).

Hopefully it will help. :)

Tee they are lactose, gluten, wheat and yeast free. No artificial colors or preservatives, no sugar or sweeteners. Do they taste bad? You betcha, but you only need to take one a day and I just chased it with a bite of food and it was all good.

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!

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!

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

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.

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.

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...
