My OB recommended this prenatal - which I like -

Vitafusion Prenatal Gummy Vitamins, 90 Count (Packaging May Vary)

I also liked this book the first time I was pregnant -

Call an OB to schedule your first appointment - which may be 8 weeks out or so. Ask them if there is anything they recommend before your first appointment.

Vitafusion Prenatal Gummies

They taste good and are practically candy, so I know I'll take them every day!

u/vanessss4 · 4 pointsr/July2018Bumpers

Vitafusion prenatal gummy in lemon & raspberry lemonade flavors.

u/rapsoar · 3 pointsr/TryingForABaby

I just bought these which have no iron. I love that they're gummies, cuz prenatals are huuuuuge and chalky.

u/ampersandie · 3 pointsr/TryingForABaby

I just went and looked at them again and it looks like they lowered the price even more to $7?? Jeeze and right after I order mine too haha

u/ground_hogs · 3 pointsr/CautiousBB

The only thing I could handle was the gummy ones, like these. You could even bite it and take small pieces throughout the day if that helps.

Concerning the prenatals, I was vomiting 2-3 times a day and nauseated morning til night with the Target prenatals I was taking. My OBGYN said the prenatals might be exacerbating the morning sickness.

I switched to twice-a-day Vitafusion gummy ones (no iron and bonus of DHA) and it immediately cut the vomiting down to once every couple of days. It's awesome! I'm still quite nauseated some days but I'm able to make trips to the grocery store now without pulling over to vomit or heaving in the bread aisle :)

I've been told every home remedy under the sun and considered punching the next sucker that said ginger was the "secret". Everyone is different and if you have extreme morning sickness, you might just have to wait it out. My weeks 5-9 were particularly hellish but I finally stopped losing weight last week. Good luck, it's almost guaranteed to get better soon :)

u/danadou · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

VitaFusion. They taste pretty decent; I took them with my previous pregnancy too. Just know that the packs come with 90, but you're supposed to take 2/day, so the bottle doesn't last as long as you might initially think.

FWIW: Once I started the iron pills, my energy was back up and I felt a lot more like "me." So hopefully the same goes for you.

Also, I'm not a doctor, but my OB said that even with my low iron, it's almost certain baby was getting plenty. Baby gets first dibs, and we get the shaft. ;)

u/rosepurplesoup · 3 pointsr/proED

These are the ones I was thinking of, but there are a few more brands on amazon as well.

u/Preggopotamus · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Oh, yes. And they are wonderful. I didn't have any nausea issues with prenatals with my first, but this time around I definitely did, and I should have switched sooner. These are the ones I use, but there are a bunch more out there.

(Sorry if the link is wonky, posting on my phone.)

My wife was having a hell of a time with her vitamins - same deal where the thought of it made her gag and occasionally she'd be unable to keep them down. We got her these gummy ones and she's doing much better with it - she actually looks forward to them. The appear to have omega-3 in them as well.

u/colbinator · 2 pointsr/TryingForABaby

Did a little digging on amazon and found a few - search for Vegetarian Prenatal. Most important parts: folic acid and DHA. You can also find DHA as a secondary vegetarian supplement (usually it's from fish oil), it looks like it's not in very many of the vegetarian prenatals. I'll have to check my sample prenatals when I get home and see if there are any that are vegetarian there, then you could call your dr and have them prescribe for you.

This one looks promising, and is gummy!

I also found this book, which I think I'll get, too:

u/goboinouterspace · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I am huge on supplements for my skin, but this product seems worthless to me personally. I take zinc, fish oil, turmeric + black pepper, and apple cider vinegar with the mother along with a multi vitamin and extra vitamin C.

edited to add: You'd probably be better off just taking some prenatal vitamins instead of this . . .

u/MiddleClassNoClass · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I use these. plenty of folic acid and taste good.

u/IComeHereForTheCats · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

These are the gummies I take. They have been a lifesaver for me since I can't swallow the huge pills. I found them at one of my local grocery stores.

u/ViviElnora · 2 pointsr/childfree

I don't have an eating disorder and I am not a doctor, so I don't know if this is the right way to handle things, so you should check with your doctor or psychiatrist before doing most of this. I have, among other things, an anxiety disorder, and Bipolar NOS, so I am basing my advice on what I have learned about self care from those, and on recommendations that my grandfather was given to help with his heartburn. Also, if this is sound advice for ED, I'm sure you know all this, but often when I'm going through a rough patch, I need someone to tell me to do my self care stuff.

If you haven't already, go through your kitchen and get rid of or lock up most of your high calorie/low nutrition food and everything that is really acidic. Go shopping for foods that are nutrient rich and lower acid. Also, get something like Ensure or Boost, it will help both with nutrition and lowering the acidity in your stomach. Eat mostly fruits and vegetables (you don't have to be vegan, you can still have meat, just eat it in moderation), and make sure you are eating enough insoluble fiber (whole grains, carrots, apples with the peels, leafy green vegetables, etc.). Stay hydrated and chew thoroughly. Eating like this will help get your food through your stomach faster. Taking a walk after eating helps too. ^1

If you haven't already, talk to your psychiatrist about taking vitamins (including a D3 supplement, the farther from the equator you are, the less you get naturally), calcium, and a probiotic. My psychiatrist recommend I take prenatal vitamins (I'm sorry, I know this could be hard for you right now). She told me they really should be the standard woman's vitamins, because most women need the extra folic acid, regardless of their plans for children. As for what kind of multivitamin to take, I recommend the Vitafusion Prenatal Gummy Vitamins. They don't have iron, so they are easier on your stomach and don't interfere with the absorption of calcium. I also like Vitafusion's Calcium. I have found that taking a calcium supplement helps with my heartburn. A probiotic (I don't know why but every time I try to type probiotic, it changes to phobic) should help the rest of your digestive tract cope better. I like gummy supplements because they are their own reward for taking them (I think they taste like regular gummies), and because they are chewed up, they should be absorbed faster.

Add something fun to your morning routine, something you will look forward to doing. I love to read, so I make sure to have time to read while I'm eating my breakfast (but I have to be sure to set a timer or get to work early enough to eat there, otherwise I get too distracted and end up running late which makes me stressed for the whole day).

Make yourself do something to treat yourself everyday. Get your nails done, get a massage, buy a new book or shoes or a movie, take a bath, go for a walk, something that normally makes you feel good or you have been wanting to try for awhile. Just doing something you normally find pleasurable, even if you don't really feel like doing it right now, can help you feel better.

And remember, even though we don't know you in the real world, we care about you. ❤ You are one of us, someone who understands how hard it is to live in a parent centric society, and we want you to be happy.

^1 Unless you have a medical condition that affects your diet, you should be fine making these changes without talking to your doctor first.

u/sassyfras_ · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I have these, and also recommend their chewable calcium supplements.

u/Fabulous_Feline · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

The pregnacare liquid tastes the same as the chewable vitamins - I know, because I have had the same issue as your wife. I bought chewable vitamins on amazon. They are expensive but you get tonnes in the bottle.

I bought these ones

But yeah, they taste pretty much the same as the pregnacare liquid, which I also bought. I think they are harder to get in this country because they are quite sugary.

I wouldn’t say the pregnacare liquid made me gag. It just had a weird aftertaste, so I just had a glass of juice after.

Edited to add:

In my first pregnancy my midwife told me I only NEEDED to take vitamin D after a certain point, as I have a balanced diet, and that the prenatals were expensive and folic acid is only necessary in the first trimester to prevent neural tube defects, so the expense of the above vitamins might be a one off payment while she still feels sick.
I don’t want to give you medical advice as I don’t know your wife or what her pregnancy is like, but after a certain point she won’t feel sick anymore I hope, and you could go back to cheaper vitamins...

u/leaps_and_bounds · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I am so sorry you are dealing with morning sickness :( I used these prenatal vitamins in my first trimester because they are delicious and they don't have iron, which makes a lot of women kind of queasy (just make sure to get iron from other sources). good luck dealing with the nausea, i hope it passes soon!

Vitafusion Prenatal, Gummy Vitamins, 90 Count (Packaging May Vary)

These taste pretty good! No fishy taste they're raspberry lemon ( almost lemon zest). And they're gummy!
I got them on sale at cvs with a coupon but the 10$ a bottle price seems competitive.

Also no iron :) what does the iron do that's bothering you?

u/aequeen21660 · 1 pointr/pregnant

I did the flinstones gummies until I found Vitafusion gummies. They saved me!!

u/m0ff · 1 pointr/infertility

The only ones I've found that don't completely upset my stomach are Vitafusion Prenatal Gummies

u/duckingcluttered · 1 pointr/TryingForABaby

I take these and they're quite tasty :)

u/one_hot_llama · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

They make prenatals without iron also! The gummy ones don't have iron (read the first review on this one). One of my friends took Flintstone vitamins without iron instead of prenatals while she was pregnant also (suggested by her doctor). Worth a shot!

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Just set up some "high priority" stuff because of this post, actually! I prioritized the calcium/vitamin chewables that I use, because I'm almost out of the calcium ones,

u/quixotickate · 1 pointr/BabyBumps
  1. My morning sickness started around 8 weeks, and lasted until about 16. I only had a few really bad days where I actually threw up, but I was nauseous most of the time.

  2. I took the Vitafusion Prenatal Gummy Vitamins, which I found to be both delicious and easy on my stomach. They don't have iron, so if you do you would have to supplement separately, but not everyone actually needs iron.
