I feel the prenantal pislls are very important to keep taking I personally didn't feel any weird taste I use to like taking them with my first and my newborn since I am breastfeeding I still take them to finish them up I have a few left I took two bottles I finish the first one so started a second one when I was pregnant I would recommend to take it and drink some orange juice afterwards or eat a fruit maybe that can help every pregnant women is different so good luck ask the doctor ...

I've been taking the gummies the whole time. Only issue is that they don't always have iron in them so you may need to take an iron supplement as well. They're little and easy to take though.

If taking gummies make sure u take folic acid on the side. Gummies don't have the required recommended Amt of folic acid. My Dr said I could take those but had to take a separate one of folic acid and explained y... some of the over the counter prenatal pills also don't carry the necessary amt. So my husband and I decided to take a prescribed one (absolutely no taste at all) which they also have a mild laxitive in them to help with the constipation.. I like them but they are a bit pricey

I have tried just about every prenatal vitamin out there, and the only one that works for me are the gummies. They are fantastic and don't have a weird during or after taste! Good luck!

a lot of gummies don't have iron in them.. actually I never found one that did at all. (learned that the hard way after having my son last year.. I had to take iron pills after having him from being so anemic) - anyways, now I'm 16w1d & I take the Flintstone Complete vitamins. they have plenty of iron & they were recommended by my OB's office!

Honestly, buy the highest quality of vitamins you can and suck up taking them.  Vitamins are gross but it's for your health and the health of your baby. Take them with something strong tasting like orange juice.
