I'm taking this liquid stuff I've taken forever, I can never remember the name of it, Source of Life, or Nature's something, it's green, in a yellow bottle from the health food store.  I like it because it's not a pill, and my experience with prenatals in pill form is that they're frickin' enormous.  I gag anytime I take them. 


My issue with my liquid one is the sugar in it.  Nine grams per serving.  It's not a whole lot, but if you're watching your sugars/carbs, I guess I'd rather have 9g of sugar in an ice cream cone than my prenatal, ya know?


I'd just like to hear suggestions/experience.  Maybe there's something on the market that I don't know about?

I'm taking the same brand, but their pills. They're huge, and the dose is two a day, not just one. But once I got over the morning sickness, they haven't been so bad.


I didn't even know you could get prenatals in a liquid form - I wish I'd known that during morning sickness every time! Although I agree with you on the sugar, that kind of stinks.

Rainbow Light one a day prenatals.  They aren't much bigger than a normal multi vitamin and  they don't taste as bad IMO.

I take the Garden of Life Vitamin Code raw prenatals.  You take 3 a day so each pill isn't too big.  I also take vegan omegas.  I'm really happy with them!  Highly recommended for sure.

I knew aboutt he Rainbow Light vitamins.  Never heard of the Garden of Life ones though.  Will be checking out everyone's recommendations, though.  Thanks!
