Newest Prenatal--Stuart Prenatal Vitamin

So, I ran out of Prenatals while I was sick. Because I really didn't feel like going anywhere and I wanted to give myself a chance to recover, I wasn't really going out to GNC to get some. Plus I had a coupon for Stuart PrenatalsStuart Prenatal Multivitamin/Multimineral Supplement, Tablets - 100 ea
When I was researching prenatals when I first was TTC, these were the ones that seemed most recommended. Full price, they're around 30 bucks, so pretty pricey, but let me say they're worth it! You can find cheaper ones on eBay, etc, but expect the expiry date to have passed or be within a few months. Most brand new ones I think have at least 1 year. Since I was trying them out for the first time and I'm still just TTCing, not yet preggers, I thought I'd go for ones that expired this Sept.

So far, I have to say I love them, if JUST for the fact that the pill is a decent, swallowable size, AND I only need ONE per day. Unlike my GNC where I had to take two huge honking horsepills each day.

I know many women get nauseous from vitamins. I'm usually not one of those, but generally I do eat when I take them. I don't know if I can honestly assess Stuart Prenatals nauseousness factor because I've been already a bit nauseated the last few days (cramps???). I only started taking them yesterday.

So far though, A++. Also, although you may pay 30 bucks a pop for a bottle, there are 100 tablets each bottle, and you only take one per day. SO, really you're paying for about 3 months worth of prenatals...which averages out to 10 bucks a month. Not bad really!

I might look into those. I realized (since I stopped taking mine for a week,lol) I get sick from them. :(
