I heard Duet DHA is very good. But it's prescription only.

I take Jamieson Brand  multi vitamin and djs supplement, plus extra folic acid. I have never had any issues with them. The pharmacist recommended to take them at night after.dinner just incase they hurt my stomach, that way I can sleeo through it and not be cranky all day I've heard materna is a good brand too. Congratulations on your pregnancy!

I take one a day. Works great and comes with a folic acid. Centrum was awful and wreaks havoc on stomachs.

It depends on how far along u are with your pregnancy an how your body can handle vit. But during u first trimester I took flint stone vit. They don't make u as sick

My doctor told me to take Flinstone Complete Vitamins... it has everything you need even the right amount of folic acid! They are smaller and chewable which is great because most prenatals are huge.

I take New Chapter Perfect Prenatal...a little pricey, but worth it if your stomach just doesn't do too good with vitamins.

Im taking Theranatal. $50 for 13 weeks supply. I like it because I'm not constipated anymore. Nothing was helping me. With those pills I'm fine.

I'm taking the gummies...I went for all natural organic, no soy, gluten free expensive stuff at first....after 8weeks made me sick just the thought of them! Switched to natalassure which is perscription only...great cause it had a stool softener in it...finished my month supply and got a new pack and made me sick! Only thing I can stomach is vitafusion prenatal. Has DHA and all the nutrients baby needs!

I took the materna with my first pregnancy and it made me very sick. So with this one I am trying the jamieson brand with stomach ease and been taking it for two weeks and its been fine if you take it just after you eat breakfast or lunch. Literally after your last bite you should be fine with nausea im finding its the best one for me considering I have a sever issue with prenatal vits. So I hope you can fine one that fits you best. But strongly recommend jamieson with stomach ease.

Vitafusion. They're gummies and they taste good. I was choking on the other ones. About $12 for 90.

My doc recommended materna with both my pregnancies. Its best to take them at night as they can make you nauseous.
