PreNatal Vitamins
MMG924 posted:
Hi. I had my first of 3 blood tests for pregnancy and I'm pregnant.

The doctor told me to switch to prenatal. I have Crohn's disease and because of my surgery I don't have as good absorbtion as a 'normal' person. I have to take extra folic acid in addition to whatever I take.

Is there a good brand, that does not smell like fish and is only 1 pill a day and is not crazy expensive that anyone can recommend? Size does not matter - sadly I'm used to taking pills so it doesn't bother me.

Pretty much any brand of pre-natal vitamins will work. I used Nature Made.

I take VitaFusion gummy Prenatals and I love them...I can take pills but I like these because they don't make my stomach hurt, even if I take them without food. I buy mine at Target and they are pretty affordable. Hope this helps.

Found out in mid-June that I'm pregnant with my first child. Excited and nervous!
