Early Pregnancy and supplements concern
I have been taking strong supplements and diet pills the past several months (OxyElite, Stacker 2, Mega-T Green Tea, Diurex, as well as pre-workout supplements that stimulate) and have just found out I am pregnant (about 5 weeks, although my scheduled Dr. appt is not until next week).  Obviously I have stopped taking all of this and am eating healthy and no longer restricting carbs or red meat as vigorously.  However I am very concerned about the use of supplements in the first few weeks of pregnancy. I will ask my doctor but is there a record of women who did this early on with relationship to birth defects or complications?

Hi ,congrats.
To be honest its not good but i wouldn't worry to much, think of how many women drink excessive amounts before they new they were pg etc.
You have done the right thing and stopped taking them and that's all you can do but if you are worried talk to you doc/midwife.
You could also start taking pregnancy supplements and folic acid. Eat healthy and generally look after your self and little one. All the best with your pregnancy and again congrats.
