Has anyone found prenatal vitamins that aren't huge? I can't remember what brand I used with DD but I just bought some made by NatureMade and the darn things are massive!

I started taking 2 gummy multivitamins that have the same amount of content as prenatals.

I have the NatureMade ones right now too - my husband calls them the horse pills! They really taste gross too, IMO. I'm going to check once more with my doc during my Wed appt. but I wanted to switch over to a gummy multi-vitamin too perhaps.

I got mine at Walmart, can't remember the exact name, but I didn't think they were huge. I haven't tried any other brands though, so I don't really know how they compare in size.

I bought the Naturemade ones that have DHA in them and they were not only huge, they made me super sick.

I switched to regular Target prenatals plus a seperate DHA pill (which is also huge by the way) and I felt much better.

Ive heard gummies are great but Ive never seen them with DHA.

I take 2 pills that I got from my dr as a sample and continued them. They aren't really big and they have DHA. It's OBtrex DHA prenatals. I can;t take the gummies. I tried and they make me sick.

Gummies sound so much better. I'm just not up to the horse pills.

BrooklynBump - those are the ones I got but I wasn't brave enough to try them!
