My OB recommended that I stick to the iron-free ones and that I take an iron supplement, specifically one of the ones that uses carbonyl iron instead of the normal type.

I’ve been taking the New Roots prenatals. they are in a veg gelatin capsule, so they are easy to digest, and only have 35mg of Iron, and everything else you need. You take 3 a day with your meals.

i’m also taking the New Roots Wild Omega 3 fish oil capsules, which contain EPA and DHA- the EPA is for me, and the DHA is for the baby. best thing, no fish burps! I take them right before my dinner, one a day.

sorry, this may not help since I’m not sure if New Roots is in the States, but thought i’d share. We need to make sure we have enough Calcium too, especially in the last 4 months of pregnancy, since the baby will basically leach it from our bones! sadly, my Mom got arthritis from me, since she didn’t know. I still feel bad! :-/
