I take the vitafusion gummies they are the only prenatal vitamin I don't throw up they have Dha in them if I take Dha separately it also makes me throw up so they are perfect for me I take 3 of them a day instead of 2 because I'm nursing my DD and pregnant I do take iron two days a week in addition to the gummies

I don't take prenatals. I take a lot of care to make sure that my diet is providing plenty of essential vitamins and is nourishing for me and the baby. I believe that natural whole foods are much more beneficial than a concoction of (many times) synthesized vitamins, much of which the body does not process.

Foods that I make sure to consume plenty of-
greens
fresh fruit and veggies
butter
pastured meat (chicken, pork, and beef)
lard
soaked bean
nuts
cod liver oil/fish

Target brand prenatals and expecta lipil dha. These ones don't make me sick or make me burp up fish like the previous brand I tried.

NewChapter Organics. I picked them because they're whole food and because I went totally organic as soon as I got my BFP. They're a little spendier - cheapest I have found is on Amazon, and you can set up a subscribe & save option so you never have to worry about running out.

It is now sold at most stores, including Target.
That is what I take too!

I take Nature Made prenatals with DHA. The reason I take them is that's what my doctor was using and recommended at the time I started trying. I order them from amazon and they're about $25 for 90.

Just started taking these Gummy Prenatals. They are much easier for me to take, they don't taste bad, and they aren't hard on my tummy!

I also take the Rainbow Light ones, but the Compete Prenatal System. It's whole food based and actually makes me feel better when I take them! It is a lot of pills to take a day but to me it's worth it. No tummy upsets at all, and gives me more energy.
