    I haven't had mine for 2 days because the tablets are so big they make me sick!
    They are the pink sanatogen ones, my oh says they look like horse tranquilizers! Lol!
    I just bought them from wilkinsons do you think the MW can prescribe me some smaller ones??

    Mine are not huge, they are made by trophic and are in the vitamin section of my health food store. But they are dusty, which I hate. I found a nice small, capsule version, but they were 5 times the price.

    Boots have a prenatal vitamin thats kind of plasticy, and squidgy. Goes down well because of the coating, (If you have a mouth full of liquid lol) If you cant take big tablets though just get some folic acid on its own, they are small.

    I take Pregnacare Plus. The folic acid tablet isn't too bad but the omega 3 one is HUGE! It scrapes my windpipe as it goes down and makes me gagg. I dread taking it.

    Yeah I was going to say the same as queenemsie, Tescos own brand are really small, they come in a yellow packet are are a great price.

    I take the sanatogen ones too and I agree they are huge, really difficult to swallow.

    i was going to say, tescos ones are tiny :) i took them before i was pregnant, & moved onto pregnacare when i found out i was pregnant so i could have the multivitamins in them rather than taking a different multivitamin.
