My husband and I decided that it is time to start a family. I am just finishing the packet of pills that I am busy with. Will be drinking the last one on the 17th of August. What I want to know, is about vitamin supplements. Is it safe to take say Vital's pregnancy multi-vitamins? I have read numerous articles about folic acid which I will definately start taking. I read on a website that my daily intake of Folic Acid should be 400mcg and that I must make sure to not take more than 770mcg Vit A daily. Is there anything else I must look out for? I am healthy and following a healthy diet and excercise routine.
