Yay, doctorgirl!  You’re getting "baby-ready!"  I take a Centrum women’s vitamin right now.  Is there a brand or type that is better than others?

I keep meaning to start taking a mult-vitamin, but I can never stick with it.  (They give me heartburn).  My sister, who is much more diligent about this stuff, takes a multi-vitamin, calcium and Vitamin D AND folic acid.

I take a prenatal generic form and the Align probiotic for my digestive system. The probiotic has worked wonders for me! The only supplement I take if its even that is Fibersure powder sprinkled a couple times a day in some OJ or something. Can’t taste it! I hate medicine by the way and it takes every ounce of discipline I got to take it everyday!

i am taking prenatals from Costco.  i’m afraid to get my labs done.  i’ll probably need to take cholesterol meds with the way i’m eating.

I take a multi-vitamin (the version for women) and fish oil.  I find when I stop taking fish oil, my joints starting creaking!

I always get on kicks where I am really good about taking a multi-vitamin and then I fall out of the habit….bah!!!

Usually in the summer I eat a lot better..more fruits and veggies….and less on the go than during the school year

Once school starts I tend to slip out of my healthy eating and try to take a multivitamin.  In the winter I take my vitamins more diligently as well as acidphilus, echincea, and depeding on the vitamin I am on I sometimes have to add in Vit D and Calcium to meet the values that I need, but most of the time my vitamin covers those,(depends on who did the shopping…)

I take Swiss One 50 vitamins w/ B vitamins… this bad boy is a horse pill, but it also has twice the amount of goodness than a regular daily vitamin has. I also take fish oil and a natural supplement to help with water retention.

I’m PCOS, so although I dont want kids yet I do need to get myself ready for when I am "ready".  I am taking a pre-natal, fish oils, and vitamin E.  As well as watching what I eat.  My husband and I want to start trying at the end of this year.
