    I'm taking them, and they are adding to my sickness! Cost a fortune, so taking them in the evening to finish the pack. Will find something else after that.

    I took the pre-conception ones and then moved on to the pregnancy ones and I've not had any problems so far and Tesco had them on 3 for 2 last week so got stocked up!

    If I don't take them and just continue taking my 400 mg of folic acid and my Vitamin D and Calcium do you think that I will be covered???

    They made me ill at first but I've figured out a system now

    Personally I like taking geek because they give me a full range of all the vitamins I need but if you don't then you will be covered. After all when my mum had me they didn't have these fancy vitamins and I'm here fine lol but if you really don't want to take them then what you're taking should be fine

    If you do buy them do NOT get them from Boots as they are over £15 for 4 weeks supply. They are less than half that on Amazon.

    My MW told me not to bother paying all that money for brand names, as long as you are getting the right amounts of folic acid and vitamin D in the tablets, any kind is ok. So therefore, being a right cheap skate, I bought Tesco's own variety! Checked with the MW, she said they were ok!

    I'll stick with that. I'm wary about all the extras they put in brand pregnancy vitamins.
