My prenatal vitamins were making me sick. My midwife suggested 2 flinstone gummy vitamins per day.
I also can't swallow pills. I was told 2 chewable Flintstone vitamins. I get the ones with extra iron.
She's got it right... 2 Flintstone vitamins and you're good to go! I was told the same thing by my OB for my first prenancy, and again with my current OB for this pregnancy.
Thanks, Ladies!!! I purchased some today and I feel relieved to be able to still get the folic acid I need without feeling sick.
I can't swallow pills either so you're not alone. They are right about the flinstone vitamins. They even make gummy vitamins that are the same. During my pregnancy I told my ob that I could not swallow pills and he was able to give me actual chewables that were perscribed just in case you still don't feel like the flinstone vitamins are good enough for you.
Another thing that I forgot to mention is that you can get folic acid from simply eating certain foods
I take the adult vitacraves...ya know the silly commercial with grown ups acting like children...lol they are a wonderful help!
The Prenatal vitamans really does taste nasty. It makes me want to gag. So I have to take the one's with the capsule. They have prenantal softgel with DHA so far I cant complain.
