Target and no. But I need to go get more since I am almost out. Also, I want to get the DHA ones.

My prenatal vitamins used to make me ill, and then my high risk doctor prescribed PregVit Folic 5 because they have 5 mg of folic acid instead of the usual 1 mg. Anyway, you take one in the morning and one in the evening so that your body isn't trying to absorb all the vitamins and minerals at once (it is typically the iron that makes people ill), and I never felt sick again!

I'm taking the Wal-Mart brand. They only make me sick if I take it on an empty stomach...so I make sure to take it after supper every night.

I take Rainbow Light Prenatal Multivitamin. In addition I take a B6 and Folic Acid. It did make me sick, but it doesn't anymore.

I just have the CVS brand, I honestly only take them on days I don't feel too nauseous, or they put me over the edge and make me vomit. My dr. actually said to skip them if they are making me sick, I'm hoping I will feel even better soon and can take them everyday.

I can't remember when I last took a vitamin.

I had started taking my kid's chewable children's vitamins. The "grown up" ones were making me queasy even before I got pregnant.

I use the cvs brand with the dha in it. i like them because they have a gel cap style, so I can't taste a gritty nasty pill. plus it helps it go down more smoothly. I think I am gonna stick with this brand. I have tried several. (plus it was buy one get one free, yay!)

I take the Jamieson prenatal brand. It used to be that I had to take them at supper time on a full stomach and not take them if i ate fruit, BUT now that i'm farther along they don't make me feel sick at all, they just taste like crap! lol

I take VitaFusion Prenatals gummies from Walmart. They're the only ones that don't make me sick and they have DHA in them already. Just 2 gummies a day. I can take them on an empty stomach and be no more nauseous, even when I was going through the worst of the morning sickness.

I use the CVS brand too (made sure to take it to my dr and check if the levels are all good and they are). I take them at night right before bed because otherwise the prenatals do make me feel sick. This way I can just sleep through it
