Over 50 and taking prenatal vitamins!

This past month I let Mike order our vitamins online. It's a simple process and they show you the order several times before you pay for it so mistakes can be avoided. The next day the company sent a confirmation of the order. Usually I just ignore it. I decided to check it this time. Was I in for a surprise! Somehow, Mike had ordered me prenatal vitamins instead of the regular vitamins. I told Mike about it and joked that if he saw me acting a little different, that was why. I checked the ingredients in the catalog and figured they couldn't hurt me and to try to change the order wasn't worth the hassle.

Well, guess what! The next day I read an article in the paper and it said some women take prenatal vitamins because of the extra folic acid in it which promotes hair growth. Hmmmm... My hair has been thin for years and seems to be thinning even more, so I have decided to give the prenatal vitamins a try. The doctor in the article said the extras in the vitamins wouldn't hurt. So, I guess I will do a little experiment and see what happens. Watch for future posts!
