I want to start taking my cod liver oil. I avoided it in the 1st tri, since my prenatal has 5,000 IU of Vit A already (rainbow light 6 a day) and I didn't want to add to that.
So, am I ok with the 5,000 IU plus 400-900 IU extra? My prenatal also has 800 IU of Vit D and the cod liver oil has 1-12 IU.
One thing about the cod liver oil pregnant women should know is that it can increase pregnancy length by an average of 6+ days. Great if you are prone to go early, not so great if you are a primip or someone who goes late. Ive heard midwives suggest that you stop supplementing by atleast 36 weeks and resume after birth.
