I'm with you, Leafylady! I take el cheapo Trader Joe's multivitamins (400 mcg of folic acid). My mother, who is a master of whole health, is horrified that I am taking "synthetic vitamins", rather than natural ones. We have the Solgar vegetarian multis here, but, frankly, they smell so.....smelly, that just opening the bottle makes me gag. That and you need to take two very big pills to get the total amt makes them unpleasant for me right now!
The TJ's ones smell a bit, too, but it's do-able, at least for now. If the smell starts getting to me, I plan to ask the mw for a prescription for vits next week, b/c the rx ones don't smell at all. Although we eat pretty healthily, I really like having the backup of a vitamin if my diet is not great for a day.
Anyone else noticed that their morning sickness is better when they take their vits (and keep them down)????
