Check with doctor: Eventhough you do eat good with your pregnancy, your baby do need certain vitaminsfor good development that your diet is not enough. You should try to take the prenatals vitamins as prescribe by your doctor.If you have problems, call your doctor to change to different ones.Some small percentage of pts can not take those vitamins.Of course you have to eat very good to supplement if you can not.
