Hi, all I know is that they give a vit A shot to a new born that is going to be breast fed to stop a life threatening illness. If the child is on formula they get it from there so don't need the shot. I am not sure about during pregnancy though . xxx
OMG sorry ignore the last post as I submitted it I realised its Vit K. So sorry for any confusion...must be the hormones! x
do a serch and see your doctor i dont want to alarm you but yes vitamin A especially in the dose you described is not good at all i am wishing you the best of luck.
How far along are you....how long did you take them into the pregnancy?
I am 19 weeks along now and I took them only a week into pregnancy. I have heard so many conflicting facts about this issue and I am scared. The worst thing is that "they" say that it is not good to take vitamin A pre-conception as well because it deposits in your system and takes a while to leave your body. In total, I took 10 000 IU for one month.
