Well, my bottle of vitamins says before, during, and after pregnancy, so it might be a good idea to start them now. I don't see what it'd hurt. Good luck.

Re: I have a serious question...

My OB/GYN told me it's good to start taking them before pregnancy, during and even afterwards. I know a lot of women who still take them long after they've delivered their last baby. Plus vitamins are good for you anyway, unless you've been told otherwise. Hope this helped.

Rule of thumb is three months before you start TTC -- not that you should necessarily wait if you're trying already unless you've had vitamin deficiency problems before.

Re: I have a serious question...

I started taking them after I found out I was pregnant. Now my DS is 13 months old and completly weaned and I am still taking them because I like the way they make me feel. I seem to feel more tired if I dont take them.
