Balance per se being an inner-ear thing, its unexpected and therefore possibly Not Good influencers would be (a) subtle hormonal changes and (b) equally passing viral infections. As you can't take anti-cold and flu meds whilst preggers, best to be aware of these; and if you can't take vit C for a cold because of the protocol you might decide to opt out of the study. At the end of the day you and the healthy outcome are more important than the science (she said heretically).

Trust yourself and review matters from time to time. If you're iffy, trust that and be cautious. Me, I gave up going up the stairs at work when the simple bump-bump of my footfalls started hurting my womb and a belly-band wasn't helping that. You'll know.

Well, the trial I'm on doesn't ban all supplements, just anything containing selenium, because that's what they're studying the effects of; but it's easy (and much tastier) to get vitamin C from food/drink! The midwife did say that they generally don't recommend taking supplements as there shouldn't be any need so long as you get a reasonably balanced diet.

However, you have reminded me I'm eligible for a flu jab & should make an appointment to have one!

If you're iffy, trust that and be cautious.

Yes indeed -- I do that anyway (cycling or otherwise -- there's no shame in getting off the bike and walking, or sitting down for a minute until I feel better). If I can't climb the stairs, then I can't climb the stairs. It would be a nuisance though so I hope I'll still be able to...!
