What has changed with my daily supplement routine during pregnancy? Not a whole lot, to be honest. You can read all about my daily supplement routines here.
The main switch I made was from a daily vitamin to a prenatal and increased the amount of fish oil I have been taking.
I had been on birth control for most of my adult life, so as soon as I went off birth control I decided that I would switch from a daily vitamin to a prenatal to start to get my body ready for one day becoming a mother. This ended up being about a year before we decided to grow our little family.

I loved that once I became pregnant, I was able to purchase both the prenatal and fish oil in a bundle and at a discount with JOY BUNDLE TRIMESTER 3-PACK.
Those were the main changes I made, the 2 things remain the same:
Along with my pre and post-workout routines. I don’t take a pre-workout right now either in case I need or want a little coffee when I sit down to work.
