I am 35 years old, and 6 weeks pregnant. I forgot to take my vitamin C supplement this morning and now I took about 2500 mg. I am worried about the baby because I do not want this to cause any damage to my baby.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Usually, prenatal vitamins contain vitamin C and you do not need to take any extra supplement. It is better to take it in your diet in the form of citrus fruits and vegetables. However, there are different studies and some recommend a higher dose in pregnancy but the maximum dose is 2000 mg in a day. Take care in the future. It is important to take folic acid at this stage and rather starting it from pre conceptional time.
What is more important is to consult your doctor regularly. Considering your age (35 years), you may get a double marker test at 9-11 weeks to see the safety and any chromosomal anomaly in the baby followed by the level 1 scan.
