Pregnant and currently on 50000 iu of D3 a week
I have been on 50000iu of Vitamin D3/week for the past two months (three month presciption) becuase my levels were tested at 20. However, I found out I was pregnant two weeks ago and took myself off until I could consult with the Dr on how much I should be on now that I'm pregnant. My prenatal has 800iu/day. The doctor told me that I could continue the 50000iu/week until I run out and than go to 4000/day to supplement my pre-natal.
The doctor did not seem overly concerned if I took it or not so I am worried and would like a second opinion. I've read stuff online on the harms of taking too much while pregnant and also the harm that can be done when deficient. My levels were 20 three months ago and have risen to 24 as of two days ago.
