When I was pregnant before (son turns 1 next week) the prenantal vitamin was a single horse pill size. This time around the doc prescribed a prenatal that comes in 2 pills - pregnancy supplement with omega 3 supplement. Don't remember the name. Just wondered how different prenatals were effecting people, I know some can be a little "harsher " than others. Anyone taking the 2 pill prescription?

i'm taking LifeFitness brand...they are not huge, don't smell and don't taste gross...best of all they contain ginger which really helped me in my first tri with the bad nausea i had....once i started taking those vitamins the nausea subsided.

This time around I am just using the Jamieson brand prenatals. Last time I was on the 2 pill prescription but I couldn't keep them down.

with my son I was on prenate elite, which is one of those ones in the bubble packaging (I HATE THOSE WITH A PASSION!!!LOL) But, they had a stool softener in them also, so that was great. But, this time, I'm taking NatalCare Plus, which is in a bottle. Its on walmarts 4 dollar plan.

I'm supposed to be taking Basic brand but I just can't stomach them anymore. I'm planning on doubling up on flinstones instead. My doc also gave me these DHA pills. They're red.. supposed to help with brain development.

I'm taking Materna from centrum. It's just one pill and also one my doc recommended.

I take the Walgreens brand prenatal b/c so many people have told me that they don't make them sick. I also take a DHA, Omega 3 supplement called Expecta.

At first my doc prescribe primacare (or something like that) that was an A.M and a P.M pill. It made me so sick! Now I am on the same brand but it is just one big purple pill... but I gag at the thought of taking it so I am currently taking two flintstones!!! They still burn my stomach. I hope I can stomach the prenatals soon.

I got a prescription for a chewable prenatal but when I went to the pharm to get it, I found out I still have to pay $40 despite of my insurance! NO way, I'll either stick to my reg. prenatal or get flintstones. Does the flintstones taste bad? I got a walmart brand and it tastes nasty!

My dr has me on Prenate Elite. They seem to work well and they don't make me sick.

I am on NATURE MADE, Multi Pre-Natal. They are somewhat of a horse pill, but I can keep them down. They are actually pretty good!!Anyone taking the STUART prenatal?
