This is a list I got from my doctor. I would definitely do your own research and talk to your doctor before taking something new. You may need to stop certain supplements when you become pregnant. Please check with your doctor!

The vitamin D receptor is present in many female organs, including the ovary, uterus, and placenta. The active form of vitamin D (calcitriol) has many roles in female reproduction. Bound to its receptor, calcitriol is able to control the genes involved in making estrogen. The uterine lining produces calcitriol in response to the embryo as it enters the uterine cavity, shortly before implantation. Calcitriol controls several genes involved in embryo implantation. Once a woman becomes pregnant, the uterus and placenta continue to make calcitriol, which helps organize immune cells in the uterus, so that infections can be fought without harming the pregnancy. Poor vitamin D status has been associated with certain pregnancy complications such as gestational hypertension and diabetes.
Calcium-d-Glucarate (in the morning)
Hormonal imbalance can be a real problem. It may cause other areas of your body to be thrown off. The symptoms are many and even one imbalanced hormone can bring about symptoms. Emerita’s DIM with Calcium D-Glucarate offers a natural way to help keep hormones balanced and keep those pesky symptoms away.
CoQ10 is naturally orange and found in most cells in the body. CoQ10 helps support cellular energy production in the mitochondria – the powerhouses of most cells. The highest concentrations of cellular mitochondria are found in the hardest working cells in the body, such as the heart, making CoQ10 an important nutrient to help support heart function. Moderate amounts of CoQ10 are found in foods, but the primary source of CoQ10 in the body is produced by the body itself. CoQ10 levels decrease with age and some cholesterol-lowering statin drugs can reduce CoQ10 production, which is why supplementing may be helpful to replenish CoQ10 levels in the body.
Glutaclear at bedtime
Glutathione supports healthy cells, mitochondria, and energy production. It provides antioxidant protection against free-radical damage.
Brazil Nuts – 2 a day
Brazil nuts hold exceptionally high levels of selenium. 100 g nuts provide about 1917 or 3485% recommended daily intake of selenium, rating them as the highest natural source of this mineral. Selenium is an important cofactor for anti-oxidant enzyme, glutathione-peroxidase. Just 1-2 nuts a day provides enough of this trace element. Adequate selenium in the diet help prevent coronary artery disease, liver cirrhosis, and cancers.
Vitamin B6: Playing a role in over 100 bodily reactions, vitamin B6 supports the production of hemoglobin, steroid hormones, and nucleic acids. Folate (Folic Acid): Plays a role in DNA replication amino acid metabolism, and many other reactions in your body. Vitamin B12: Plays a role in the metabolism of nucleic acid, red blood cell synthesis, methyl transfer, and the synthesis and repair of myelin
Is for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body.
This is the most important supplement after the prenatal multivitamin. Ideally, women should take EFAs for at least three months before they conceive to allow time for them to be fully incorporated into all the tissues.
Iodine (not kelp) my doctor suggested 300 mcg a day
The average person is marginally deficient in iodine, particularly in people who avoid use of iodized salt. Ironically, the more you avoid processed foods the less iodized salt you get. Avid exercisers also are more iodine deficient than average, given iodine loss via sweat. This has gotten so bad that I have actually found many people with goiters (enlarged thyroid glands). Even a modest lack of iodine leads to lower output of thyroid hormone (especially T4), resulting in mild hypothyroidism that impairs weight loss, can make fatigue worse, increase LDL cholesterol and triglyceride values, and even increase cardiovascular risk. Iodine is an essential trace mineral: everyone needs it.
Magnesium deficiency is widespread and is associated with osteoporosis, hypertension, higher blood sugar, muscle cramps, and heart rhythm disorders. For unclear reasons, these phenomena are magnified during wheat withdrawal. Magnesium supplementation can thereby have some dramatic benefits during wheat withdrawal. Unfortunately, most magnesium supplements are better as laxatives than as sources of absorbable magnesium.
