Re: pre natal vitamins

You can always take a children's chewable, like a Flintstones or something! Just take some extra folic acid, 1mg at least, it comes in itty bitty tablets and you can get it at the drug store! Just talk to the dr. about it, but me and alot of the other women on the board do the same thing!

Re: pre natal vitamins

With my 2nd pregnancy I took the chewable flintstone vitamins and a folic acid pill every day that was recommended by my midwife because I couldnt' swallow the prenatal pills. The folic acid pill is very very tiny so you shouldn't have any wishes

Re: pre natal vitamins

My doctor told me that taking two Flintstone vitamins a day is fine. That has 800 mcg of folic acid.

I have been told to take pregnacare vitamins as it as everythin in it that you need. I find that they have helped me alot but i havent heard of anyone else who takes them. Every1 seems to be takin flintstones vitamins which to tell you the truth, i aint even heard of them.

Re: pre natal vitamins

Flintstones are children's chewable vitamins, in the shape of the flintstones characters from TV. And they are yummy, except for the orange ones, i just throw them away, lol!
