Moms of the bowl, did you take prenatal vitamins when trying for baby? And did you take them for the whole time while you were pregnant? Is there big difference in prenatal vitamins vs regular multivitamins?

I think the main addition in prenatal is folate or folic acid

Theory is your body needs high nutrient levels and this is good way to get consistent nutrition especially for those with poorer diets. Lots of studies show positive benefits of some nutrients (methyl-folate or folic acid, omega 3s, iron, coQ10,etc). Also studies showing low or no benefit. And some things you don’t want to overdo. “It starts with the egg” is a well researched investigation of nutrition. Your doctors recommendation is best way to go.

Took them for 4 months prior to getting pregnant- per my doctors recommendation. She explained it to me that taking beforehand would just mean your baby is carrying luggage of good vitamins at the beginning of their travel. Currently 4 months pregnant and planning to take them the whole time, and eventually adding in an iron supplement.

Congratulations!!❤️

In addition to taking them while TTC and pregnant, most doctors also recommend you continue prenatals while breastfeeding. As many stated above, it’s primarily for a couple of nutrients that are believed to be helpful to you (and the baby) during pregnancy.

Hi fam! Me and my partner (females) just got an oral consent from my partners best friend (gay male) to be a sperm donor. Anyone has experience with this?

I have this problem that I picked up from my father growing up: can’t effectively communicate negative feelings to people that I’m close with. I sort of expect them to know, and when they don’t get it or don’t show efforts that I’m expecting to receive, I start to distance myself from them and shut down. I started to reflect back on why I do this, and sense that this is some kind of a sick way of showing I have more power over the other person. How can I fix this?

Been 2 weeks and I am tired of pumping. I only pump like 20-30 per session and 5x a time but each time it takes almost 1h from start to finish (lube the flange, gather the equipment, find a spot, find my water/food, pump, clean up and put stuff away) and I am not even washing them (hubby is doing that). What did you do to make it more efficient? Also I can't seem to figure my flange fitting. I follow the guidelines and the suggested one is more uncomfortable than a large size. Help.

Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today?

Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?

Is it really worth it? When I think about having a kid I get sooooo much anxiety. I fear: the extra pressure on a relationship, the cost, the decision to keep working vs quit the job, the possibility of the kid having a lifelong disorder, the physical act of being pregnant, the act of giving birth, not having any time for myself, making an 18+ year commitment, the kid turning out terrible & blaming myself, making all the decisions on how to parent, & more. Does/did anyone else feel the same?
