what prenatals are we taking and do you like them

Ok I had to ask because sometimes I just cant afford prenatals that I am prescribed, and I have to take samples of different ones... I would have to say that the one I am prescribed is the best I think and that is primacare one. The big purple pill that smells like vanilla! What are yours...

I just take the CVS brand prenatals and like them fine. I took them with my first as well.

I take Prenate Elite vitamins. They have a very bad aftertaste in the beginning....kind of like burping up burnt rubber.... LOL But I've gotten used to it by now. I have missed out on getting sick twice so far and I attribute that to these amazing vitamins!!

Re: what prenatals are we taking and do you like them

I take the Prenate Elite as well. I didn't even attribute that rubber after taste to the pill until I read it! I thought it was just me. I like that they have the stool softener in them which really helps things move along! I took them with my first as well! They are a bit spendy if you don't have insurance..I think around $1.00 a pill, but well worth it.

I take the GNC brand of prenatal vitamins. They are good, or as good as swallowing a huge vitamin can be.

Re: what prenatals are we taking and do you like them

Have any of you taken the new superbabies prenatals? Or ever heard of them? I have a sample of them and was curious if I should even bother trying them.

Those are the ones I took and in fact, DS is two months old and I am still taking them They make my nails sooooooooo nice Plus I dont get sick on them.

Re: what prenatals are we taking and do you like them

I was taking generic Wegmans brand vitamins which seemed great, but today at my appt, I mentioned to my DR that I needed some more and she gave me samples of Prenatal Elite, which I know I LOVE because my mom's OB gave her a huge box of them for me, so I've been on those for awhile now. I never noticed the rubber taste.. But they keep me regular and not sick.. LOL so they are great in my book

Re: what prenatals are we taking and do you like them

I'm taking the Costco brand Radiance Prenatal Vitamins. No issues here. Cheap: about $7 or $8 for a bottle of 100. Just felt like the ones I took before this bottle were easier to swallow. I just about gagged this one up this am. No taste issue, it's the size of the darn things that seems to be a bother. I think a better coating will help me out.

I take the Stuart Prenatal DHA. They are perscription only .They are HUGE though! BUT, I can not find one any smaller and they don't make me sick like some other ones do.

Re: what prenatals are we taking and do you like them

I'm also taking the Stuart Prenatal vitamin called Duet DHA. I've only been taking them for 4 days now. The second day I took them I noticed I felt a little queasy, which was to be expected, but I ate a little something and I felt fine. They seem to be working fine for me.
