I'm 5 weeks pregnant today and have been taken a brand I found at Wal-Mart. What prenatal did you take? What brand would you suggest?

I've been taking target brand. I just checked the back of the bottles and compared the levels of vitamins in the generic vs. Name brand. Its pretty much the same if not a little more of the essentials in the generics.
Docs said they were just as good.

 I took the kind the OB prescribed lol it was cheaper with my insurance. also, if you get the walgreens savings card its just like 3$ if you dont have insurance.

I couldn't keep the regular ones down so I found the gummy ones at Walmart and I have no problem taking them. My Dr said they are fine so I'm just going to stick with them.

I take the gummy prenatals from Walmart. I forgot the brand but it's in a green bottle with a yellow top.

Flintstone chewables. My dr actually told me they are best for women with morning sickness. They have everything you need but are less likely to make you sick

i take meijer brand. It was the only brand I could find that would cover the whole pregnancy in one bottle.

I am 5 weeks today as well. I take one-a-day prenatals. They seem to be the only ones that don't make me sick. :)
