I'm taking a brand recommended by my naturopath friend from a company called Genestra. I also keep a brand at work called "Rainbow Light".

I'm just taking the walgreens brand for now. They were on sale but I have to supplement with DHA, I'd like to find one that is all inclusive but over the counter!

I'm working my way through the huge bag of samples my OB gave me when I had my IUD removed. I have about 10 different brands/packs left.

I'm taking Rainbow Light Organics. I like them wayyy more than what I took with my last, though I can't remember what those were called but these aren't hard for me to swallow and don't make me gag from their smell.

Nature's Bounty Prenatal multi + DHA

I really like one kind I used last time but I can't remember what it was. It had B6 and a stool softener in it.

Vitafusion prenatal gummies with an iron pill every other day. Gummy vitamins do not contain iron so for those of you who said you were taking them you will want to pick up an iron pill as well, standard prenatal vitamins contain iron.

I"m using the OB one complete. a RX from the doc. but I think that after this pack finishes I probably be switching back to Similac Prenatal, I pay $40.00 after insurance coverage for OB one complete.

I had a brand called sun valley. I've had them for forever, and I just realized that they expired in March! (they don't go "bad," they just lose potency).

So today I'm picking up some more. Probably gummies, because I just spent the last 20 minutes struggling to keep the one I just took down.

I use the Kroger generics right now and take a dha supplement. I also have samples and a prescription of a prenatal with dha from the doctor so I may switch to that when I run out.
