Are you all taking extra folic acid, iron and calcium with your prenatals?
 
I am taking them all because the lady at the dr office told me to, I haven't filled the progesterone though because I went to Target and my insurance won't cover it which I expected but the lady told me this rx is $200! :(

I just took a regular prenatal and if I remembered I sometimes took 1/2 a dose of RAW Vitamincode womens multi for just a little extra...

I take right now OTC prennatal, folic acid, B complex, Cal with Vit D, red rasberry leaf. I should prob up my iron bc mine is usually borderline low and i bruise really easy.

Nope. Not yet anyway, just the prenatal. Last time I just took the prenatals till the leg cramps kicked in, then I added a CalMag at bedtime. Never have had issues with low iron.

But I do an herbal infusion that has a lot of good Vits and minerals. . .it's RRL, alfalfa, nettles, dandelion, and oatstraw.

I TOOK extra folic acid, iron and fish oil and my son came out good sized healthy baby I think it helped. :)

Maybe try calling Costco or Sam's if you have a membership to see if they have a cheaper price on the progesterone? I'm not a member of either one, but I've heard their prescription prices are really good.
