I wasn’t able to take pills when I was pregnant so my physicians had me take Flinstone Vitamins because the Folic Acid in them is what you really need. 

Hope that helps!

My doctor recommended me taking flintstone completes.  When I compared them to my target brand prenatals- they actually had more 100% daily values than the prenatals had.  And they surely tasted better!  They do not have 100% of calcium though, so my doctor also told me to get some smoothie tums and take 2 of those per day to get to 100% in calcium.  Worked well for me.  Good luck!

The prenatal vitamins that my doctor prescribed don’t bother me, I am still taking them with muchkin being born as recommended.  You may want to speak with your doctor on this

Back when we thought about TTC, my doc gave me a prescription for pre natals…I don’t know what they were called, but they were blue and had a light vanilla scent to them.  They never made me sick which is amazing because almost every vitamin out there will make me feel awful.   So, maybe talk to your doc?  Sorry I couldn’t be more specific.

I’m not pregnant, but have been taking the Vitafusion gummies. They taste pretty good, for vitamins anyway. Maybe try taking them before bed?

I’ve heard good things about Vitafusion and Rainbow Lite. Would taking them with food help, or are you already doing that?

I’ve been taking the One-A-Day Rainbow Lites. No sour stomach here!

Compare the bottle of prenatals that you have to the bottle of flintstone vitamins.  You will be shocked at how many of the flintstone completes are 100% of the daily recommended value!

Not gummy or fruit flavored, but I take “New Chapter Perfect Prenatal”.

It’s an organic, food-based vitamin. It’s easy on the stomach. Has probiotics to aid in digestion. And the dose is split up into 3 pills, so you can take 1 pill with each meal, which is better for absorption anyway because some vitamins/minerals your body can only absorb so much at one time. (You can also take all 3 pills at once if you want, I prefer to spread them out.)

I took prescription Prenatabs and they worked great for me. I am still taking them. They were cheaper for me than OTC because insurance covered them.
