I have some very sad news to share. I think I may have terminated my own pregnancy due to an overdose of Vitamin C. Please note that I'm NOT saying "don't take Vitamin C during pregnancy!" I believe it is very important to make sure you are getting enough Vitamin C... it's a critical vitamin that can actually help you stay healthy during your pregnancy... just don't take a huge MEGA DOSE like I did.
I was very worried about being sick while pregnant. So, I went to my medicine cabinet and pulled out my bottle of Wellness Formula, which works like a miracle for me, in terms of stopping a cold in its tracks. But unfortunately, it says clearly on the bottle that you shouldn't take it when you're pregnant. I felt that I needed to take something in order to keep from getting sick (I did not realize at the time, that one of the "gifts of pregnancy" is a very strong immune system!). So, I took about 5,000 or 6,000 mg of Vitamin C. I assumed this would be considered safe, since they say it's water soluble and your body just flushes out what it can't use.
