Vitamin D is not a drug...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Line,

Vitamin d is not a drug and to put it into the same category of harming your baby as if you were taking alcohol is totally and completely wrong thinking by FAR and is worrying about exactly the opposite of what you should be worried about- namely not getting ENOUGH vitamin d during the vital first trimester formation of your baby.

Vitamin D is a VITAMIN and to be concerned that your baby is going to be deformed because you took a proper amount of a vitamin is like worrying that your baby will be deformed because you ate vegetables. Would you worry about your baby being deformed because you exposed your skin to the sun?? Of course you wouldn't. But that is EXACTLY the same as taking vitamin D.

I would be FAR more concerned that you were taking FAR too LITTLE vitamin d to meet your needs and that you are still severely deficient. Get a vitamin D level and you might be shocked at how low it is.

Please read my page on Vitamin D During Pregnancy to see what the consequences are of not getting ENOUGH vitamin d during pregnancy.

There was also a recent study giving women 4000 IU's throughout their entire pregnancy. The women had HALF the level of complications during pregnancy as the women who only took 800 IU's of vitamin d.

Then also read my page on Vitamin D and Breastfeeding and you'll see that after you deliver, you'll need to get 6400 IU's of vitamin d in order to even meet yours and your baby's needs for vitamin d during breastfeeding. So, if you need that much for breastfeeding, do you think that you would need LESS than that to meet your baby's needs in the womb?

Get your vitamin d level tested, I think that you'll be shocked at how low you are...
