TTC to-do: Begin taking prenatal vitamins

CHECK!

Ha! This might just be the first thing I’ve checked off this mile-long to-do list. Was in the drugstore last night with Darling Husband, and made a beeline for the vitamin aisle.
DH looked a little wary as he saw me pick up the Materna, but I quickly explained that no, I not already pregnant — it is something you should take a year or so before becoming pregnant.

That is the case, isn’t it? Materna’s website says it’s important to take it at least 12 weeks before becoming pregnant, but meh, it can’t hurt — right? Hmm.

Anyway, it had the folic acid, which I know is important, plus all kinds of other good everybody-should-have-them vitamins, like A, C, all the Bs. So instead of just taking those little folic acid pills that my obsessed doctor keeps pushing on me, I thought this would be a better idea.

Took my first one this morning with my pancakes — it was gignormous and pink, but went down easily.

The package says to take it before conception (check!), during pregnancy, and while breastfeeding, so it looks like I will be taking these things for the next, oh, three years? At least? Better get used to it!

So what do you think?
