Preg Vitamins

hi Doc, im 34 weeks preggies, and my gynae put me on pregnavit and caltrate plus (calcium supplements) since 14 weeks. i was wondering if the calcuim supplement is not an overdose of what im already taking with the pregnavit. i have realised though the calcuim on pregnavit is a bit low. however again the ladies i have spoken to, none is on calcium supplement. is it common to have calcium supplements during pregnancy, despite the vitamins.

It is just an extra precaution, not an overdose.

Funny you should ask, With my twins I was on vits and caltrate, 8 yrs ago, this time I am only on pregnavit. It is the same gynae and I am not going to question her, cause I hated taking the calcium. This preg I am also having less problems with my teeth and less cramps, don''t think it has anything to do with it, just mentioning.
