I took prenatal vit before ttc and started calcuim and aspirin as soon as I found out we were pregnant at a round 4 weeks...doctor was okay with this, but you should always ask yours!

I was told by my OB to start at least 3 months before TTC to get the folic acid built up. This time I was on for almost a year before conceiving.

I took them for about a year before TTC, but not because of PE stuff, just because of the folic acid etc...

Ive always been told its always good for women from like 18 - 35 should take the prenatal vitamins just because of how good they are for you. My Peri told me to start taking any vitamins I would take whle pregnant while TTC. I don't think it has anything to do with the PE or HELLP just for the healthy in general of me and the baby.

I think I recall a study posted by somebody here (probably Caryn) that said there is a chance or some evidence that Prenatal vits preconception may help prevent PE in some subgroups or something. I'm sorry I don't recall the specifics but I do recall putting that into my hip pocket of preconception activities just in case it does help.

i take the Vit D b/c the normal american doesn't get enough to sustain yourself and baby. And the Cal -mag helps keep blood pressure down.

I've been taking them for years and will continue to. It's a great multi vitamin and my doctors are fine with it. But I've never heard that they reduce the chance of pre-e.

Never went off them since first pregnancy. Actually still on the expensive little buggers while nursing. Probably will stay on them until I decide to have another preg or not - belly is used to them. Best wishes!
