TTC will never be the same

Oh, the days when all I had to take was a prenatal vitamin.

Not anymore. I'm loaded now.

1 prenatal vitamin with 1 mg Folic Acid.
4 Folic Acid 800 mcg each
2 Vitamin B12 500 mcg each
1 Vitamin B6 50 mg each

I take all these in one day. I'd gladly take more.

I'll do whatever it takes.

Praying for your pregnancy,

Right there with you! I am taking more vitamins and pills that I ever thought even existed! We're not even trying yet - just trying to "get ready" =) Thinking and praying for you guys!


Bree said...

I so get that. I do prenatals + flaxseed oil + juice plus + a thyroid support vitamin. Add in chiropractor, accupuncture, a gluten free/sugar free diet. I know. I'm a little obssessive. Sending you good vibes for another healthy pregnancy.

We will do anything for our children, even those we have never met face to face yet. Holding you up and believing God for His Word to be manifest strong in your life!
ps...I loaded up on vitamins daily as well. Not just prenatal. Sometimes it seemed overwhelming, but realized it was just something I had to swallow and I could do it.

April said...

Oh Holly! I think about you often and I wish TTC were different for you! Getting swallowed by all those vitamins sure do make the idea a whole lot different.

Veronica said...

Boy that is a lot of pills! Just want you to know I'm still praying for you and hope that you'll get to see that positive preg test soon!

croleyc69 said...

Mary said...

I take the prnatal and the folic too .. what is the B12 and B6 for?
It sure is a lot of pills to take but it is worth it!

Lea said...

Yes - whatever it takes! Thiniking of you.

Christy said...

Kelly @ The Beauty of Sufficient Grace said...

Mom Putnam said...

I understand how badly you want a baby and i want it for you plus the grandma in me wants one too, but, the mom in me who watches out for her girl says amke sure taking all those pills are ok.

Ms. Sarah said...

Praying for your pregnancy. I was there with you and all the vits with nates pregnacy. That was on top of my daily meds. With nate i was taking about 15 pills a day

Trisha Larson said...

Oh man can I ever relate to this post. Definitely a small price to pay. Hoping and praying that we both get a yes soon! I've been getting a "no" for 18 months plus God said no to saving Nate. So...I'm due for a YES and you are too!!!!


The Runge Family said...

I am praying another little one for you soon! I know God will bless you when you aren't even expecting it! Remember to relax and have fun with it...oh yeah and take your pills. :)

Jodi Lansink said...

wow---that is a lot of it safe for YOU to take all of those? Hope it works for you soon.

Meggers said...


I read on either your blog, or a friends blog about a sweet girl who was pregnant and diagnosed with cancer (they had a blog)...Can you or anyone reading this help me out? I was wanted to check up on her and her family.

Thanks so much!
God Bless

Cecilia said...

I can relate in some ways, trying to have another baby after losing a child changes everything. So many things I took for granted the first time I will analyze closely when/if we get pregnant again. More appointments, labs, etc, but it will be worth it! Praying it happens for you soon!

sarah flint said...

I know what you mean!! I'm taking Prenatals, Promethuim(sp?), Extra Folic Acid, and Metformin.

My Very Own Angel said...

OMG, that seems like so much. But you're right about both things It will never be the same, and you'd take more. Praying for you to get pregnant.

love you


Kristy said...

I hear you. I can still remember the load of meds I was on with my last pregnancy, it was crazy. But like you, SO worth it. If we get to go down that road again, I will glady take it all ten times over.

Thinking of you on this new journey.


Once A Mother said...

TTC used to seem so much simpler didnt it?

Danielle said...

The drug store called... They need to order some vitamins from you! LOL I'd take pills all day long if it guaranteed me a healthy baby I got to bring home with me :)

Holly said...


I think this is what you are looking for:

Meggers said...

God Bless!
