When I was pregnant with my girls I had been taking GNC Prenatal Vitimins before conception. My OB wanted me to try prescribed ones and within a few weeks my nails were not as strong. I knew I wasn't receiving enough of something so he told me I could go back to my GNC ones.

I just bought a bottle of VitaFusion gummy prenatal vitamins to try - has anyone tried them? They include DHA, which is nice, but no calcium or iron. I have trouble swallowing pills. During my first pregnancy, I took two Flintstones chewables every day (my OB said this was fine). Was planning to do the same this time around, but I've been told I'd also need a DHA supplement. When I saw the VitaFusion gummies with DHA, I got pretty excited. Just wondering if anyone's used them or heard anything about them.

there are many reasons to tak a vitamin even if not pregnant as most ppl. do not eat the recommened amount of fruit and veggies, let alone calcium and iron or folic. or essential to ENSURE you have a healthy baby. I am a high risk pregnancy with diabites in my family so i take PREGVIT FOLIC 5 , there is also just Preg Vit. its 2 pills one in the morning before breakfast and one after dinner. i have been taking them a couple weeks before i concived. these pills a bit pricy ( canada) but they are formulated to help reduce nausesa which i hearfd other pills help enduce. Also they are kosher and all that other good stuff.. FDA approved and all. I like them. i feel less worried when i only eat fires and some ice cream in a day. i know my baby is getting all it needs if i skip out once in a while. ( cravings are craving,

I always had a major problem with prenatals when i was pregnant with my daughter and more often than not skipped taking them and she is ok, however i do not recommend it. they way our food is processed now a days is the biggest reason why the prenatals are so much more important these days. I am now 26 weeks and have not been using a prenatal vitamin, any vitamin bought in a store is chemically manufactured in some way unless it is kosher and halal certified it is an artificial source. I have been using a drink formulated from the Moringa tree which is a natural certified food product making all of its nutrients vitamins and minerals completely natural my doctor not only said it is perfectly fine for me to substitue the drink for the vitamin but she also told me she is going to suggest it to other patients.

Thanks I thought it was strange. Why would they make all the prenatals if all women needed was a child's vitamin ? Kind of frustrated me esp because I asked her. I wonder if it has anything to do with being more of a natural Dr. ?

@erickaash, yes, that does seem a little odd. Even my GP prescribed me my pre-natals.

My doctor told me that all I need to be taking for pre-natal vitamins is Flinstones or generic chewable vitamins. Does it seem odd to anyone else or is it just that simple??

I wanted to let everyone know that the Grocery store Meijer does FREE prenatals. If you have one near you take your script there and use your extra cash to do something nice for yourself!

I used to take materna prenatal vitamins when I lived in Canada, and I tried a diff brand with the last pregnancy and they made me sick so I got my friend to mail me materna from canada for that pregnancy too. I'm wondering now that I'm onto baby #3 if anyone knows of a prenatal that is essentially the same as materna but available in the US?

knockoutmom - store brand over the counter prenatals do not have as much stuff in them as a prescription prenatal. If you were on a prescription prenatal with your daughter that could be why you are not having issues with the sickness and pill size. Just a thought :)

Im 9 weeks along and have been taking my prenatal ever sice I found out about the little bundle of joy. Unfortunately ever since I started it, mine has been making me sick. Diarrhea being the worst of the symptoms. I discovered that my vitamin has polyethylene glycol which is most commonly used in laxatives (go figure) so I was told I could switch to the flintstones complete (2 a day for pregnancy) which does not contain the polyethylene (and for all those scared about the folic acid, 2 flintstones complete chewables contains 800mcg of it, which is above the minimum 600mcg required). Helps to know your chemistry! Switching till I can get to a doc and switch the prenatals :)

Jolene some prenatal vitamins tend to do that so if you're uncomfortable taking them just tell your Dr. and they'll recommend you another type that will suit your needs. Good Luck!

sokistar, late response but my doctor actually gave me a sample of 'Select-OB +DHA' which actually has a chewable vitamin. I've yet to take it but I hear it doesn't taste bad. Just an FYI if anyone wanted to ask their doctor about it.

OK so Elliott is now 9months 2 weeks. I came off my pill a month ago as we would like to try for another baby once Elliott is one. We are still using condoms as we don't want to get pregnant before our wedding in October. Do you think I should start taking my pregnacare vitamins now?
