@cherrycoke: You just need to make sure you get plenty of folic acid. Drink a glass of OJ each day along with the vitamin. It will pack you full of the stuff 🙂

@cherrycoke: My ob said no. She said getting more than 100% was key for most women. You’re going to have to see how it effects you. I can take mine with a sip of water with no issues.

My ob said the OJ was enough. So I’m sticking with that.

I’m on a food base pre-natal, New Chapter.  They are more expensize than most but I love that they are food base.  Check out the Babies Boards because there are a couple of threads discussing what different Bees are doing to get ready for TTC.

I second New Chapter Perfect Prenatal.  You want folate, not so much folic acid.  I heard folate is food based instead of synthetic.  Also, try to eat foods that have it naturally.  I also take krill oil.

Another vote here for “New Chapter Perfect Prenatal”! 

I like the New Chapter Perfect Prenatal because:

  • no dyes
  • no unfermented soy
  • has probiotics
  • split into 3 doses for better absorption

I also take:

  • “Nordic Naturals Prenatal DHA”
  • krill oil
  • vitamin D (extra 2000-3000 IU per day)
  • calcium/magnesium
