Vitamins!! Help!!

i haven't had my first doctors appointment yet but i want to start taking some prenatal vitamins.
i went to the store today and saw some prenatal vitamins with iron..are they good to take?
i also heard that you shouldnt take in to much vitamin A and these had about 63% vitamin A in them. Are they okay to take?

i don't have the doctor for a few weeks and i wanted to get a jump start on things.

Any suggestions or comments would help ALOT.

yeah they are ok. i took the ones from cvs until i went to the doc but make sure it has folic acid in it. you can also take flinstones vitamines if the other ones make you sick and they might. just make sure that which ever one you choose has folic acid.

Walgreen's brand for me... and I caught a 2-for-1 sale which will take me almost all the way through the end of the pregnancy.

I also add a B-Complex since the nurse told me that (regardless of how it smells) it may help with nausea.
