Question by : 8 weeks pregnant and haven’t taken prenatal vitamins?
Well tomorrow I am 8 weeks. This is my first pregnancy, I wouldn’t say I’m unhealthy, but I don’t have a family doctor and nobody really knows I am pregnant for personal reasons; besides 2 close older friends of mine. My boyfriend is really busy most of the time and the car has been broken down & a bunch of stuff. So none of my friends have talked to me about needing to take the vitamins I am not aware of what I need, and what I can and can’t have (because I don’t have parents) so I would love some advice, is this horrible that I haven’t taken the vitamins (Like I said I’m not completely unhealthy, I drink fruit smoothies, eat salads (spinach) drink lots of orange juice and eat bananas, and lots of yogurt and soups and pastas etc. Anyways I’ve had an ultra sound, the lady had a strong accent so I didn’t talk to her at all really. & the doctor who said I was pregnant had also a very strong accent and he didn’t really say anything to me at all. SO I’m a little frustrated and confused…where do I get prenatal vitamins? & what else do I need? probably just the pharmacy right? how much does it cost? ah I’m just so tired and confused. I’m pretty much on my own and don’t know what to do.
I am 18 years old by the way….I’ve been on my own for a long time….

Hi! No its not going to harm anything because it sounds like you are a healthy eater! They are pretty expensive. Its about $ 20 depending on what brand you get and how many. But they are worth. Just start taking it once you have a chance to get them. Your off to a good start in your pregnancy! I am glad you are taking good care of your baby and yourself :) good luck!
