I have been flic acid in form of sanatogen mother to be while ttc and have continued to take it after bfp. I 'm now 7 weeks. sanatogen has:
but I heard on some threads I 've looked at that you should be taking omega 3 fish oils. I do eat some tuna but limited to no more than two week and I have been trying to eat salmon or cod once week in meals. I do try eat varied diet lots of fruit, veg nuts and calcium in form of some dairy products.
I went to boots and lady pointed me to mum omega but not confident she had that much knowledge on the matter. I rang chemist and read out ingreidents of both supplements but forgot to say mumomega has evening primose rose and bit of vit e in it .
nutrient per100g 1 capsule provides
omega 3 fish oil 55.8g 600mg
-eicosaptaenoic (EPA) 3.5g 42mg
-docosahexaenoic (DHA) 27.9g 300mg
omega 6 (evening primrose oil) 14.0g 150mg
-gamma linolenic acid (GLA) 1.4g 15mg
vitamin E+ 300mg a-TE 2.8mg a-TE*
really confused about evening primrose I ve heard that's bad for early pregnancy. I don't want to take any rosks as I had missed miscarriage last December.
Do you take fish oils ? If I stop taking it will folic acid sanatogen be enough with the other vitamins , as long as I eat bit fish . Want to give baby best start.
hard knowing what's best. Wondering if my mum faced these decisions ??
Any advice be great. Hope you are all well
Wow, you're one consciencious mummy. The only supplements I ever took with both my pregnancies were folic acid for the first trimesters & with my 2nd pregnancy I took iron tablets from 28wks for 3wks. These days they are encouraging taking folic acid for longer as it helps iron intake & they now recommend vitamin D be taken as it helps prevent pre-eclampsia. All other supplements you can largely control with your diet.
Think it's cause I 've lost one baby, it makes you more careful . Just want to do all I can to ensure healthy pregnancy.
Though I only got sanatogen for floic acid , it just happens to have all other stuff in. I do eat good diet . been trying to eat less of sugary process stuff. Only ever ate crips and really naughty stuff on weekend. Always tried to watch my weight , otherwise I think I'd be huge . I love food
Thanks for advice
