As long as you are getting the folic acid, it really doesn’t matter. Once you are pregnant, you may want DHA also.

I took VitaFusion gummies and at the end only a separate iron pill when blood work showed I needed more iron. Before that, I took the One-a-Day prenatals, but they were expensive and were making my morning sickness worse.

@MrsF13:  I recommend New Chapter Prenatals and Nordic Naturals Prenatal DHA

Most multi-vitamins only have half the folic acid they recommend. You should be getting 800 mcg, most multi’s only have 400 mcg. I take rainbow light prenatal vitamins as well as rainbow light DHA. You can get them at Whole Foods, I get them at Target though. It’s $20 for 30 of each. I am very sensitive to vitamins and usually can’t even take a regular multi but these have worked well for me. Now that I’m experiencing “morning” sickness I take them at night so it doesn’t affect my morning sickness.

I started taking the gummy prenatal vitamins but they don’t have iron so I didn’t feel as good as I do when I take a regular multi so I switched based on recommendations from the bee.

Yeah that was the one thing my doctors insisted on, 800 of folic acid. They said anything over teh cuonter marketed as a prenatal should have that and they basically told me that was all I needed to take into consideration. After I got pregnant they suggested the DHA (which I was already taking thanks to the bee) and now they recommend 1,000 mg of vitamin d3.

I take New Chapter Prenatals, and they are great except no omega. You will want a prenatal with omega or you will need to take that separately.
