Hello, I found out yesterday that I'm pregnant and wanted to take vitamins just to be sure that I am getting everything that I need. I would like to know what brand anyone out there recommends? I'm not sure if they are all pretty much the same, so I thought I'd try and find out what other mommies-to-be have taken! So what brand is the latest recommendation out there? Also, did any of you take any sort of Folic Acid or DHA supplements as well? Thanks for your help!

Congrats!!  You do want to be sure to be taking at least folic acid ASAP.  A prenatal vitamin will generally have all the folic acid you need.  I recommend Rainbow Light one a day prenatals.  Pretty easy to swallow and gentle on the stomach.  Available at most natural grocers.
