    Pregnancy Diet

    Dear Mums!

    Any pregnant woman is welcome to share the vitamins/pre-natal vitamins you are taking, and your diet. Here's mine I'd like to share with you:
    I am 23 wks!

    Vitamins:
    Starting from 7 Wk: Folic Acid
    Starting from 11 wk: Pre-Natal Vitamin with Folic Acid
    Starting from 19wk: Folic Acid, Pre-natal Vitamin, Calcium supplement+Vit D
    Starting from 22wk: all of the above + Omega 3

    Diet:
    Starting 7wk: 2 bottles of milk everyday, + 1apple + a lot of green!
    Starting from 23wk: All of the above, Ham and cheese sandwich with brown bread, 1 plain yoghurt, one sizzling steak per week, and also cut down a lot of carbohydrates as I felt I am getting fat!

    Allergies: I am allergic to all seafood, especially fish, therefore I am taking Omega 3 as supplement. I got them from boots in Ireland.

    Please share all of you. When I am back on the chips:tmi I'll update you.

    you need carbs just as much when you are preggers... you are not supposed to cut ANYTHING out...they baby needs a mix of it all.. you are NOT fat, you ARE pregnant. there are bound to be body changes!

    It's recomended to start taking folic acid even before you get pregnant, i.e. when you start trying to concieve, and then to continue taking it until 12 weeks.

    Oooh, good subject..
    So far today:
    Coffee
    Spring Onion bun
    Cornflakes w/ milk and ground seed mix
    Ovaltine
    One pc of brown toast w/ marmalade
    Breadcrumbed pork chop, potatoes and 2 pineapple rings
    Orange
    Mango pudding

    It seems that's all so far... I'm predicting a large coffee and some sort of cake for a pre-dinner snack, then probably a little glass of wine instead of dinner as I'll be too tired when I get home.

    Then my Materna pre-natal vit.

    Is that bad?

    Hi Carang,
    Thanks for the advise. As I am Chinese so I tends to have too much carbo in my diet. I am just cutting down, instead of white bread I eat brown bread, instead of congi I have oat meal and cereal.

    hi bekiboo44

    Yeah I know about Folic Acid, but I was 4 wks pregnant when I found out I am pregnant so I can only take Folic Acid since 4 wks. Thanks it's very good info to know. =)

    I actually read somewhere an article that advised all women of childbearing age to take folic acid wether they were trying to get pregnant or not, in case they got pregnant and didn't know for several weeks! Am pretty sure that's one extreme view though.

    I didn't take folic acid until I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant. The way I see it, our Mothers never took it back then and we all turned out all right, so I don't think it's something we should worry about too much.
