I've been taking a supplement daily for the last 2 years and hadn't stopped when I found out I was pregnant thinking since it was all fruit/vegetable sourced it would be super healthy.
I have yet to establish a midwife and just read something last night in a book about pregnancy that too much Vitamin A can cause birth defects? I was stunned and now wonder if I should have stopped the minute I found out I was pregnant? I'm only 5 and a half weeks along but I know this is a crucial time for development etc. so of course it put me on alert.
My prenatal vitamin has 5000 iu of Vitamin A from beta carotene source
and the Vitamin A from the Garden of Life Super Green Perfect Food is from beta carotene:
anyone have any thoughts on if I have actually been taking too much?
