What are you ladies taking for vitamins?

I am taking a prenatal my dr prescribed me as well as additional 400mg of folic acid because of medical history with my family.

She also told me I could just buy a prenatal at a drug store which is probably cheaper than the copay for my insurance. What are some good brands?

I've never done well with large pills, and most of the prenatals I looked at were rather large, so I'm taking two Flinstones vitamins a day lol one of the ladies on here mentioned it, and a pharmacist confirmed that it would be alright to do it that way. And they taste good! lol

I'm taking CVS own brand of pre-natals. It is a multivitamin with folic acid and a separate DHA pill.

I'm taking the One A Day prenatals-- it comes with 2 bottles, one vitamin and another gel-like pill. Unfortunately my gag reflex is getting pretty bad and I can hardly swallow the vitamin anymore

Rx prenatals plus fish oil, and likely my midwife will start me on a B complex today (helps with fatigue)
