I take a whole food prenatal because it absorbs better. I do not absorb cheapo vitamins very well, I just see them come out the other end.

I also am taking a dha pill.

My doctor suggested I take a B-12 to help with being so tired. I am going to get that this weekend.

I take it whenever I remember, I am trying to do every night now since I am so busy in the morning getting ready for work.

No, it does not make me sick.

I take them... I started taking One a Day brand about a month before we started trying, but now I take whatever my doc prescribed. I take them before bed, and they've never made me feel sick. With the weight I've lost, my doc strongly urges me to make sure I'm taking them everyday.

I take Materna, whenever I remember too, and they don't make me sick anymore, thankfully!

doc gave me a script for pnv's plus DHA. I also take extra D.

Usually I take them with my first meal after waking up.

They've never upset my stomach.

I really liked natures made but we have a ton of samples my sister got from her ob so I'm trying out those. So far I haven't found anything I like as much as natures made.

I take the Walmart brand Prenatals with the DHA (generic One A Day). I haven't had a problem with them, and they are a lot cheaper than the One A Day.

I take the Target brand pre-natals. I started taking them immediately after I went off the pill, but still like 6 months before we started trying.

I take it right before bed. I just replaced my routine of taking my bcp after brushing my teeth with taking my vitamin to get in the habit.

It's never made me sick.

I take VitaMed One right before bed every night. I'm pretty good about taking them. I also take iron every day for anemia. The prenatal made me sick early on when I took them in the morning. When I switched to night, no problem.

I take Rainbow brand prenatals. I also take an Omega 3 supplement and an extra calcium/magnesium supplement (supposed to help to prevent pre-e, who really knows, but anything that'll help!)

I take the spring valley prenatal. They are the least expensive but have the exact ingredients as the fifty dollar bottle. I also take an omega 3 1000mg capsule with dha. They don't make me sick but the omega 3 makes me have fishy burps blahhhh
