I love that tea, too, but I believe there is something in it (mint?) that reduces your milk supply. Since I'm still nursing, that puts it out for me.

I drink the pregnancy tea once or twice a day. Nothing else. I'll start with omegas after MS goes away and I'll probably take a cal/mag supplement because I don't drink milk.

I'm taking some type of generic prenatal that I picked up at the store. When I get in to the midwife I am going to ask her for a better recommendation.

I am also taking Nordic Natural's Omega-3s with EPA/DHA.

I probably need to be taking more supplements, but I wasn't sure what was safe or not. I was taking a B vitamin supplement (at a pretty high dose because I have vitiligo), D supplement, and iron when I found out I was pregnant. I stopped the B because the dose was really high and the iron because there is iron in the prenatal. I stopped the D because it was summer time and I am hoping to get some sunlight!

After I figure out what I should be taking as far as the prenatal goes, I will figure out the rest.

Your midwife will probably offer to prescribe prenatals for you. It's a lot cheaper that way if your insurance covers prescriptions, but they're not vegetarian. I take Nature's Best prenatal and calcium, but when I finish my current bottle I'll check out New Chapter and Rainbow Light since they'er so popular here.

I was reading the red raspberry leaf thread and am thinking about doing that also. But I've had a m/c in the past so I wouldn't start it until the second trimester. Anybody else here thinking of doing the full RRL regimen?
