I can’t swallow pre-natals (they are massive!) so I’m taking the women’s multi-vitamins w/folic acid, as well as a multi-B and B6 vitamins (to lengthen my cycle).

I am currently taking prescription prenatals, but before that I took a few different kinds.  I started out with gummies.  I think they might have been Vita-craves brand.  They were good, but didn’t have any iron.  If you go the gummy route, please check this.  Iron is often left out of gummy vitamins of all kinds because children think they are candy and iron poisoning is a major concern with kids.

The next one I tried was Nature Made.  I liked these because they had the prenatal and the DHA supplement in a single pill.  Next, I tried the CVS brand prenatal.  This was two seperate pills, a prenatal pill and a DHA liquid capsule.  Some people I’ve talked said that they like that because they can take them at two seperate times and it makes the morning sickness not as bad.

I take vita fusion PreNatal DHA & Folic acid Gummy Vitamins. They do not contain iron but I watch how much iron I get so I was looking for a prenatal without iron.  I get them at Walmart for like 11 something for a bottle of 90 gummies. I love them!  I never forget to take them bc I look forward to taking them bc they tasTe like candy.

I started out taking Trader Joe’s prenatals. These were great until I was about 6 weeks pregnant, when morning sickness kicked in and I couldn’t swallow anything like that.

I switched then to the Vitafusion gummies, which are WAY easier to take and which I now totally understand the point of! 🙂 It’s true that they don’t have iron. For me, this seems like a plus, because iron can increase your nausea, and I’ve got it pretty bad.

I am taking the Target brand prenatals. I’ve tried other brands and they make me extremely nauseous if I don’t take them with food. These ones are pretty gentle on my stomach, so I can take them at any time.

I take the Nature’s Bounty type. They have their weird floral like smell that is kind of gross and kind of nice at the same time. I found taking them right before bed with a snack was best for fighting off morning sickness, but after the first trimester I’ve had no problem with queasy feelings at all, regardles of when I take it or with what. I got the Rainbow ones too, but did not like the smell or aftertaste, and you have to take 6 of them throughout the day which is way too much for me to keep track of!

@MrsDavis0929:  I take Premama Prental Vitamin Drink Mix. Instead of a huge prenatal pill it’s a flavorless powder you can mix with any drink. It saved me during morning sickness. It contains ginger root for nausea as well. It runs for about $25 for a 30-day supply online. I highly recommend it!

I started taking Rainbow Light Just Once.  They are massive, and I was cutting them in half.  They gave me pretty bad constipation and headaches.  Other than that, they were okay.

At the suggestion of my GYN, I start taking Vitafusion Prenatal Gummies and they are super delicious.  They smell so good that my husband has started taking the ones for men.  It’s like our after dinner dessert…haha. 

So far I haven’t had any bad side effects from it.  I will probably take the Just Once twice a week once I get pregnant to get a little iron in.

I take the Nature Made with DHA. They even came out with a new formulation which does not have dye in it. I have no problems with the size, nausea, or bad aftertaste.

New Chapter Perfect Prenatals.  I also take Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega, I was taking Wholemega.  After research, those are the best ones I could find.
