Christine enjoy your weekend!!

I don't have much planned other than lunch with my mom tomorrow. Oh and I am making my daughter a bunch of korker and other type bows. So far the first korker turned out okay. I need to add a little more to it as it isn't as full as I wanted.

I forgot to eat dinner tonight and therefore I didn't take any of my vitamins!! (I leave them on the dinner table in a basket so I don't forget to take them!!! Lol!) but I was busy after work and came home to start working on the bows and gave dd chicken nuggets and fruit and then went to a friends and just now got home. Whoops lol

Since 2009, I've been taking Thorne Basic Prenatal. It was recommended to me by my former chiropractor as a really natural prenatal and it has never affected my stomach. I never stopped taking it on the recommendation of my MW since I am still BFing and now TTC anyway. I order it from Amazon.

I also take a cal/mag/boron supplement. My mom is the vitamin queen in my family so she orders it for me along with hers. She knows where to find the good stuff. :-P

Not sure about the vit C part but whatever you're taking is better than taking nothing at all! My prenatal has 150mg of Vit C but I get it through other forms as well. I've always heard to make sure you're getting enough folate/folic acid but I forget the exact amount.

Are you temping? Yes

Would you like to share a link to your chart? Not yet, only if I need a second opinion later in the cycle. ;-)

When will you test? Like Mandy, not until CD12 or AF is late.

Sooo I am reading up on vitamins and TTC and pregnancy and there is sooo much conflicting advice out there.

So I am taking a prenatal (120mg vit c in it). And up until today I have been take (for the past 5 days or so) 2 chewable vitamin C tabs. (500mg/ec). Well there is info out there saying vitamin C helps with CM production and TTC in general. Most say to stick to around 1000mg. Well I am thinking tomorrow I am just gonna take one 500mg tab and my prenatal. Cause obviously we get it in out diet as well. I dont want to prevent or hinder my getting preggers because I have also read that too much can cause adverse affects as well.

What are you all taking??!! What do you think?!
