Hi All. I am pregnant with my 4th and am an avid athlete/bodybuilder.  When I get pregnant I cut out any additional supplements other than a natural protein powder, and also adjust accordingly when BFing as well.  Prior to this pregnancy I saw a naturopathic dr for awhile for a variety of things.  One thing he did was have me start taking some additional amino acids (specifically l-valine, l-leucine, and l-glutamine) during my workouts (was suffering major fatigue working through some chronic health problems my 2 youngest have).  These supplements have helped me a ton.  This dr has sense left the area.  I am under the care of an OB this pregnancy. 


I cut them out, but now at 22+ weeks have been trying to research to see if they are safe, and can find limited info.  Does anyone have some info or research on these?  I would love to reintroduce between now and the end of my pregnancy. 


THanks. :)
