Prenatal MVI (multivitamin) : The best advice would be to adjust your eating habit. Try to eat better and healthier. Increase vegetable and fruits. In addition, since you are at child bearing age- you should take prenatal multivitamin and also don't forget to take calcium daily ( daily recommendation is 1200-1500mg/day) as you are at the peak age where your body will absorp those calcium supplement effectively.
