I'm just taking the same chewable vitamins as DD. Also a folic acid. I was so sick with her that my doctor said those were fine as a prenatal. My appointment is May 16th so then I may consider taking something else.

I was on beyaz which has folic acid. I also take regular women's vitamins every day. I think I need to get a little more folic acid now that I'm pregnant, so I'll probably just buy some to add to my vitamin. I think I just need an additional 200 mcgs a day vs. the 400 I'm getting with my current vitamin.

I'm taking the Rainbow Light prenatals right now (have been since DS was born since I'm bf-ing). I'll probably switch to Stuart prenatals once I finish this bottle though, because they're the only ones that don't upset my stomach when pregnant.

I didn't really take prenatals with Emersyn, but with both girls I was on folic acid from before the time we started TTC - my m/w always told me that was the most important 'medication' to make sure you were taking in early pregnancy - not that prenatals AREN'T a good idea, but I had trouble swallowing the pills with both pregnancies - and we don't get the chewables over here..

I have been taking them. With my clotting I have to take them daily even when I'm not TTC or pregnant. I also take folic acid so now that I'm pregnant I get 800 mcg in my prenatal and I take an extra 3200 mcg. They have me od'ing on folic acid.

I started taking Kroger brand prenatals a few months back, and am almost done with that bottle. I'll probably see if my doc wants to prescribe some for me when I go in for my first appt.

I've been taking them for years since it took a lot longer to conceive than we expected. I'm currently taking Target brand and love them. The pills are small and smooth and I never got any burping from them. Good price, too. I also take a calcium supplement every day and will check with my doctor if I should continue that.

Have been taking them for years. When I was pg I took the prescription ones but have been taking the One a Day ones. Will get a prescription on my appointment on May 16th and take those.
