So, she advised me to take Children's Chewable vitamins. Which I now have been since about 8wks. and I "try" to take them daily but usually it's every other day.
I'd say if they just don't chive with ya', and your diet is healthy it's not a do or die situation.
P.S. I read your WIC post...and I too have the opposite problem with them thinking I am too BIG. I gain alot in my pg's...so what! I'm healthy and my baby was healthy and so will this one. They just can't see beyond their "charts". I also get grab from them about not Vax'in my child. Whatever!!! I go there and put up with it b/c they are a God send since Ava had to go on formula.
