its too late to worry about it now hunny, with my first i was sick everyday so didn't keep any down and this time i didn't find out until i was 8 and a half weeks and then forgot to buy some for a week, i am sure there will be nothing to worry about

It's not the end of the world, don't worry. It's good if you can take it, but if your anything like me, I bought it and forget to take it most days anyway so it's pointless. If youe worried just have a chat to the MW. She might be able to recommend some preg vitamins to help you at the stage you're at now. Good luck! Bec x

i take pregnacare and its really good, but i keep forgetting to take it coz you have to take it with your main meal and i just wana go to bed after i eat so i forget. Pregnacare is designed for you to take while ttc, while your pregnant and also if u choose to breast feed you should take it for as long as you feed for. Hope this helps! To be honest any extra little nutrients can't be bad for u or baby! xx
