Chewable Prenatal Vitamins?

I was just wondering if there are chewable prenatals that contain all of the proper vitamins as the non-chewable ones? When I was first on the search for some, all I could find were solid, so I bought the brand the pharmacist recommended but I find them very difficult to swallow, as I normally gag on them or they get stuck and end up causing me to be sick before they're in my system which is really aggravating. I don't want to take the Flintstones vitamins or anything of the such, I want actual prenatals for pregnant women. I've heard that Target sells them but I couldn't seem to find any to compare with my current vitamins! Any advice would be appreciated until I can speak to my OB on the 30th.

  • I was told to take chewable Flinstone vitamins too...because the prenatal one I was prescribed made me so sick (all 3 kinds I tried). The Flinstone ones worked great!

  • Yup, same problem and my doc just said to take two flintstones vitamins a day so i'm getting enough folic acid. She said none of it would hurt me. Its been going sooo much better for me now. I keep them down!
