Vitamin question: The only fat soluble vitamins are, as i recall, from training are a, d, e, and k. B and c are water soluble and are removed by the kidney. That being said before you make any changes to your medical regimen you should clear it through your ob/gyn first. Good luck.

No that is fine: But u don't need any more than that and u should also be taking a prenatal vitamin while trying to conceive.
