What did you/are you taking?
My Doc said you
only really need the folic acid, and the iron. That's me.
The rest.. is gravy.
So.... as long as you take sufficient folic acid each day, and your iron stores or iron in your diet is nice and high, then you can take whatever your cute heart decides. Funny though, I've noticed how many women in my "due in May" group can't take their prenatals once they're pregnant because of the barfing.
I found a chewable, not whole foods, with iron that I can tolerate. I have issues, LOL. My esophagus has enough irritation without a pill.
So GL I hope you find the perfect one! Then again, perhaps a really good smoothie might be even better, with a folic acid pill on the side?
