I am 14week pregnant. my doctor has not advised any calcium and iron tablets yet. My next appointment is after 3 weeks. So can I start taking iron and calcium tablets on my own?

I hope you are doing well. Please allow the doctor to suggest supplements. Self-supplementation at this stage isn't a good thing to do :)
