Do you just take an OTC one? With Sawyer I had some 'bathroom issues' and so i got a prescription for one that included a softener in it. I'm sort of assuming I may have that same problem this go around and my first appt isn't for a month! I. Not sure if I should call now anyway and have them prescribe it, or if I should just wait til the first appointment.

I am taking the Up and Up Target generic one, about 4 bucks a bottle. The pills are small-ish and have no weird tastes, and are easy to swallow. I have not been AS regular as normal but still going at least once a day. I don't think the pill has anything to do with it. I also have tried the Target generic gummy vitamins, but once they even begin to get stale they are too gross to me. They're the kind with the crystals on the outside, not just a straight gummy (my preference).

I have to get rid of a big Costco sized bottle of regular gummy vitamins b/c my hubby won't take them, and they'll go stale soon - I hate to waste them! It was nearly full. I wonder if there is a non shady way to find them a new home.

Right now, I'm taking One A Days, but I will probably be switching to something cheaper when these run out.

I am taking Rainbow Light on the advice of my naturopath. They are smelly horse pills, but I have managed to choke them down for the last 7 months while we TTC'd.

I got the tummies and they are amazing. No ill feeling and no gagging trying to get it down.

I'm taking Target brand too!! Except mine must be a little different because they aren't small.... but they don't have a weird taste either. I took Flintstones my first 2 pregnancies, but these didn't bother me last time or this time yet. I'm also taking folic acid.
