Pregnacare or Folic Acid?

Aug 31st, 2006, 16:07 PM   #1
 
Which is best? Pregnacare tablets which u take thruout ttc pregnancy and BF (u can start/stop at any time) or just Folic Acid up to 12-13 weeks?
Pregnacare has Folic Acid in it too.
Im debating....

I started on Pregnacare because I don't have a particularly balanced diet. Providing you eat healthily Folic Acid alone is fine.

I haven't decided if I'm going to keep taking it after 12/13 weeks.

I have been taking Pregnacare since before pg, but it makes me burp and fart loads - very embarrassing.

I eat a healthy balanced diet anyway so may stop in a couple of weeks and see if that helps my digestive system calm down.

Pregnacare is a bit of a pain as you must take with loads of food, and I'm not very good at remembering (brain's turned to mush since i got pregnant!)
