I got some equate prenatals with dha. I HATE taking the prenatals so I take them at night so they hopefully don't mess with my stomach too much.

I am actually taking Flintstone Vitamins! I will take my first one today after breakfast.

I talked with my doc before I got pregnant about this, prenatals are hard on my tummy & I want to enjoy this pregnancy as best I can. Since I am not anemic, I don't need the iron yet (I don't think) and I think the iron is what causing the stomach discomfort. I got the Flintstone Vitmains with Immunity Support & will be taking 2 a day + extra Folic Acid.

I take a target brand, it has two different pills with DHA. I have been taking them since we started TTC in Jan 2011. I usually take them in the morning with something small to eat, otherwise they can make me a little nauseous.

Right now i'm using up what I have left of Dollar Store brand, and then will probably get more from Target. I normally take them at night with my progesterone pill.

Nature's Best, or something like that. I buy whatever ones are on sale, usually, and I take them with dinner, or right after.

Alive! Whole Foods Energizer by Nature's Way and extra Folic Acid

I've been buying the liquid which I take once a day. The pills are SO big. I took them 2-3 times a day. It's easier to remember one dose.

I also take an essential fatty acid supplement (omega 3, 6, 9) and Vitamin D.

These are what I always take, pg or not.
