A lot of you have been saying vitamins are a good idea to find beforehand. I have a friend who told me she took a prenatal pill every day at the same time she took her birth control. I thought that was one of the strangest things I had ever heard. Why in the world would she DO that? Wouldn’t one cancel out the other? Well now that I’ve been thinking more seriously about turning the BMM on, I thought I’d look up a good time to start taking those things.
I went out the other day just to see what was out there and I found these, 100 tablets for $4. You only have to take 1 a day. It has calcium, folic acid, iron, all that good stuff and more. Hubby was shopping with me and I was a little reluctant to put them in the basket. I tried to be discreet but he caught on.
“Are you trying to hide that or something?” he asked.
“No… But the name on the bottle might freak you out a little.”
I guess that was his cue to check it out. I waited for the freak out… It didn’t come. He only asked if it would cancel out my birth control… “No”… Eer, I hope not. Just in case I don’t think I’ll take them for a while.
I’m hoping I can find a different multivitamin that’s like pre-prenatal, but I’m not sure they make those.
I’m a little paranoid about the side-effects. I hear some people get insomnia, have a hard time getting them down, get nauseas… I don’t need people thinking I’m pregnant yet.
