Vit B12 as advised by GP.
Bloods taken after I had DS showed I was very low in it which was surprising as I eat a good amount of B12 rich food.

Actually OP, you've reminded me to book I'm with GP to do repeat bloods to check whether I'm absorbing B12. Cheers!

ATM:

blackmores preg and Bfing supplement
was also taking vit D but have stopped and am waiting on blood results
just started an iron supplement (not a proper one, just a topper-upperer) as my iron levels were starting to drop and I'm in the 3rd trimester, and I really want to avoid having low iron levels when bub is born
mega-magnesium to prevent leg cramps

USUALLY:
nothing but I'll continue with some of the above whilst I BF
also, will look into calcium supplement as I really need to go back to lacto-free eating
