Can I take some extra Vitamin C tablets? I am 21 weeks pregnant and am trying to kick this damn cold's ass :?



Also have any of you taken the Sambucol Cold & Flu while pregnant?

My doc told me taking Vitamin C supplements can cause miscarriage and/or preterm labor. I just chug a lot of orange juice and eat a lot of strawberries.
