Target has really good gummy ones. They are Target’s Up & Up brand.

@MrsMaine: I have those, too : ) They are good. 

OP-They do not include iron though (at least the one I get does not). It may be the iron that is making you feel sick.

General Sidenote, don’t get the Target brand gummy Omega 3 Fish Oil.  Horrible doesn’t even begin to explain it.

@MrsMaine: I love any type of berry color.  I’m trying to eat all the colors evenly!

@miss-spunkin: I have been trying to find a good iron to take, as it also makes me ill (I’m not pregnant, but suffer from low iron).  I haven’t had a lot of luck yet!  Please keep us updated if she recommends something.  Maybe some other bee’s will chime in as well.  Hope you start to feel better soon!

I was buying gummy vitamins the other day and almost bought the prenatal ones. Not pregnant, but they looked yummy at Target! 😛 haha

@brideatbeach: I’m not pregnant either, but my Endocrinologist recommend I start taking them now even if we aren’t TTC for awhile, it’s a good vitamin for me.  Love the Target prenatal gummy vitamin, it’s the first vitamin in general that doesn’t make my heart race or make me feel too bad.

@Mrs.Firefly1: Really? So what makes the prenatal ones better than just regular multivitamins? I ended up buying the Up&Up regular gummy multivitamins.

I take Vitafusion Pre-Natal vitamins with their calcium supplements. Most gummies don’t have calcium and iron. The pre-natal ones have fish oil in it, so it eliminates another pill to take. Since they don’t have iron, I try to get it in my diet. Otherwise, I like them alot. My gummies piqued my husband’s interest so much that he now takes a gummy of his own.

Ugh, mine are total horse pills.  I haven’t found any good gummies in Canada, and mine don’t seem to make me nauseaus, so I’ve been sticking with it, but am writing to follow this board if anybody comes up with ideas.  I may have to make a trip to a Target…

@brideatbeach: I am not sure, I haven’t gone though each ingredient to compare, but with Thyroid disease it makes someone really sensitive to meds.  I can’t even drink green tea and I have minimal amounts of caffine in general.  Protein shakes make me feel weird, ect.  I think some vitamins have natural energy in them, it doesn’t work for me – it sends me out of breath.  Prenatal seems much more gental to me.

@miss-spunkin: I don’t remember what bee posted a similar question to this but I just have a quick question and I’m sorry if it was you that posted and I already answered it – are you anemic? I started taking prenatal vitamins when I got my BFP and thought it was the MS that was causing me to be sick – turns out it was the amount of iron in the vitamins. 

My practitioner took me off the vitamins with iron in them and I didn’t have any issues. You only need an iron supplement if your iron is low – I cannot stress that enough as it really makes all the difference in the world. Granted, I still had nausea with the MS, but I wasn’t throwing up x times a day anymore. I take the vitafusion prenatal gummies and I also have additional iron supplements that I have started taking because at 30 weeks my iron levels dipped. 

Of course, this should not be considered medical advice as I am not a doctor, just a personal story that seemed to help me 🙂
