Vitamins For 6 Months Pregnancy?
Good morning, I’m farida. I want to ask, I’m 6 months pregnant. When I was first given the vitamin for trimester 1, it was rarely drunk … So now it is still in and is already included in trimester 2 …. Can trimester 1 vitamins be taken in trimester 2? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, what exactly vitamin did your doctor prescribe to you before? So, why rarely drink? What is the condition of your pregnancy now?
Supplements that doctors prescribe during pregnancy often not only contain vitamins in them, but also good minerals in supporting the development of the fetus in the womb. The need for vitamins and minerals during pregnancy can vary greatly depending on gestational age, the condition of the fetus in the womb, as well as your general health condition. The need for vitamins and minerals in pregnant women in the first trimester, is certainly different from the second trimester. In the second trimester, pregnant women require intake of calcium, folic acid, iron, and many other nutrients more than the first trimester.
There is no harm in actually taking pregnancy supplements that your doctor prescribes in the first trimester of your current pregnancy. Provided, you need to make sure first that the supplement has not expired and is still suitable for consumption. You need to also consume a variety of foods and other nutritious drinks, to ensure your nutritional needs are met.
However, if you are pregnant with a special condition (for example twins, your fetus weighs less than the age of the womb, your fetus is detected as having a congenital defect, etc.), if the supplement is past its expiration date or is not suitable for consumption, or you are not sure can meet your nutritional needs well through the food and drinks you consume, you should not consume these supplements first. Check with your doctor or obstetrician first to be given recommendations for the right type of supplement.
Hope this helps ...
