    Me too. Tesco have them on a 3 for 2 offer on at the moment I think. It's got your folic acid in it as well as everything else :)

    I'm just wondering if anybody who takes those takes them with their main meal each day? I keep forgetting to take them with my dinner! (Mind and body just goes FOOOD! and then it's allllll gone :() And when I eat out or at my parents house I keep forgetting to take them with me.

    Would it be really bad of me to just take them at breakfast with my cereal? Cause at least then I'm always going to remember them.

    They say to take with the main meal. I'm doing that this time round as last pregnancy I took the vitamins in the morning (not pregnacare that time) and got really bad headaches. I expect it's just gentler on a full stomach and that's why they suggest it with your main meal. I'd try it after cereal and see if you get stomach ache or anything and if not, carry on taking it that time of day instead.
