Re: What do you consider "taking your prenatal vitamins"?

My MW said that if I choose to carry, she won't refer me to the RE until I've been on prenatals for at least a month (I think they figure that if you're willing to spend the money & do all the treatment, you should be doing everything possible to have a healthy birth & I'm okay w/ that).

That said...I read somewhere (a yr or two ago...) that the average American is only 70-75% compliant w/ his/her medications. So, you're "supposed" to take them daily, but I figure if you remember & keep them down 3 out of 4 days, you're doing pretty good.
