    Amelia_WebMD_Staff posted:
    This new study shows that women of normal weight taking a multivitamin every day around the time of conception appear to have a reduced risk for delivering low-birth-weight babies. Let's see about the community!

    1. Were you on a daily multivitamin around conception time?
    2. What was your LO's birth weight?

    1. No
    2. 7lb 6oz
