I was taking a pretnal in pill-form, but honestly didn't take it consistantly. I have since switched to a gummy prenatal (the brand is VitaFusion) which I love and actually look forward to taking them eat day. :)

I had to see my doctor yesterday for a 3 day migraine and asked her if she'd prescribe me prenatals so she prescribe me prenatal plus.

I can't take them because of the fillers... soooo.... I take natural vitamins all seperately. If I take the regular prenatals I vomit constantly, have migraines, etc etc. And yes, my doctor knows and yes I take all the necessary vitamins :-)

You won't catch heck from me. I couldn't keep a vitamin down my first two pregnancies. I ended up not using them most of the time. These I hope to take until I'm pregnant at least. If at that point I can't, I will make sure to take vitamin D (I'm deficient), folic acid, and iron.

With DS I pushed through but had horrid heartburn that no meds could touch. It laughed at pelvis AC and howled with laughter at tums and rolaids, it was so bad that it caused me to leak from 6 months on, not a spot or two but ounces in a night.
DD they aggravated my stomach enough to cause me to go into preteen labor and have to go in at least once a week to have them stopped by IV and shots.
This time my doctor says NO PRENATALS! Lol we have discovered that my body doesn't like fake stuff meds, etc....
