My daughter is in her 2nd trimester of her pregnancy, and her vit. D is so low that the doc. has her on a very high vitamin D suppliment. Does anyone know what this can do when your pregnant? I'm concerned for her and the baby. She mention something about preeclampsia. But I cannot find anything connect the two. With such a deficiency, what could this mean?

How much sun is she getting and is she getting enough calcium? Calcium helps the body absorb vitamin D and the best source of vitamin D is from the sun. Just be sure that if your daughter is going to be spending time out in the sun that she uses sunscreen.
