Best Vitamin?

I have had trouble with plain old multivitamins in the past, and now I am worried that a prenatal is going to be really hard on me (I'm just over 5 weeks pregnant, have been taking Flinstones but am worried they're not enough now).

Anyone heard of LifeFitness? A friend recommended but it's expensive so other advice or experience is welcome. I have a sensitive stomach and am prone to nausea, etc. But I want to make sure my baby gets everything he/she needs!

Thanks in advance for advice.

Re: Best Vitamin?

You might ask your doctor for samples of various prescription prenatals.

I've seen many posts on here about women whose doctors told them to take Flintstones vitamins if that was all they could stomach. (Search this board for "flintstones")

At the very least, do a search for "folic acid" on the web and make sure to eat lots of foods with high folic acid (fortified breakfast cereals, breads, cantaloupe, etc.)

Good luck!
