Whether you’re thinking about it, just starting to “try,” or you’ve been at it for a while, good nutrition makes a big difference for you and your baby. Remember, you won’t know if you are pregnant until you are a few weeks along, and a lot of essential development of the brain and spinal cord happens in these early weeks.
Iron is especially important during this time. You will need to keep your energy levels up, and you will also be providing iron for both you and your growing baby. Now may be a good time to start thinking about or taking a prenatal vitamin like OB Complete® to make sure you’re getting the right nutrients your little one needs, especially during the early days when you may not know you’re pregnant.
