I was also told to start prenatals at least a month before we started trying (when I went off the pill our Dr told us to wait one month so I started the prenatals when I went off the pill).
I take a good multi and additional Folic Acid. My doctor said it was fine. I don't like to have prenatals in the house when I am not pregnant, it just reminds me of what I don't have.. weird I know but I can't help it.
Happy prenatal shopping!
Interesting pov, Lesley. I sometimes feel that way, or if someone sees my bottle of prenatals on the bathroom counter they'll think we're either trying or I'm already pg. Of course, we all know the responses to those assumptions!
ITA with the pp on the prenatal/multi-vitamins. Make sure you're getting a healthy dose of folic acid regardless of what you take. You may be able to get some through your dr so you don't even have to shop extensively.
