How often are you taking them?

Whoops. That's supposed to say 1-3 days a week in the poll under "When I think of it" Sorry for the confusion.

I was EVERY day until I got MS, and then every time I took it, I get even more queasy, so I just started back with them, hesitantly, and it seems to be OK, so hopefully I can be back with daily, but for the past month or so, it's only been about 3x/week

I'm only taking folic acid and vitamin D. I try to take them everyday but I do forget occasionally.

My boys are vitamin addicts and always ask for them first thing in the morning so I take mine with them. My 16 month old is hilarious if you shake the bottle he dances and gets excited like a cat who wants treats.

Everyday here but I do forget to take the extra iron pill since my gummy vitamin doesn't have it in there! I take the iron pill maybe 2-3x weekly. Guess I need to set them on my bedside and take right before bed like I do the other

I take mine everyday....but there have been a few days here and there where I forgot. I'm taking Woman's Prenatal Formula with DHA from GNC under husband's orders. He asked his Dr about my vitamins, and apparently they are the best out there. They are similar to a vitamin they make in Germany. Check the ingredients!!! I was really blown away----there's like double of everything in them. The only draw back is they are about the size of my thumb and you have to take three of them! But they do go down easy and there is NO aftertaste!!!!

Happy April Fools Day on me!!! @ 17DPO

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"
