    I had the blackmores when TTC,

    then switched a few months into being UTD, there is ALOT more in the elevit tablets, so i've stuck with those

    (oh, and the blackmores are like horse tranq's! and you have to have twice a day, where as elevit is a reasonable size and only once a day, much better for my little head to remember LOL)

    my ob suggests elevit, but if you have any thyroid issues, its better to take blackmores as it containes vitamin A ( i think thats the vitamin that elevit does not contain)... please correct me if Im wrong...

    main difference lke u sai is $$

    I'm reasonably sure that the Blackmores Pregnancy Gold has iodine in it whereas the Elevit does not. Could be wrong but that's what I believe.

    My doc and pharmacst both said to not waste my money on those branded ones.... you can buy folate tablets on their own for about $10 for a three month supply.

    As for the other stuff in them, I get all that from my diet, and if I were taking the supplements then the majority of it would be peed out again unused by my body. I reckon it's far better to receive your nutrients from food than synthetic stuff.

    I have used Elevit with both my pregnancys, I just like them & once a day instead of twice a day is easier.

    I've taken Blackmores all throughout my pregnancy and I haven't had any morning sickness, cravings, food aversions or anything. Might just be coincidence but I'd recommend it to anyone!

    I was taking i-folic (folate with iodine) but since I couldn't stomach red meat (or lots of other nutrient-rich foods) in the first trimester I thought I better get myself a pregnancy supplement. I'm still not eating red meat and I'm 16.5 weeks! I found Elevit on sale at Chemist Warehouse for $42 for 100 tablets. (normally $52 at Chemist Warehouse). I like that it's once a day and has all the goodies in there as my diet is not very varied these days. At the moment I am alternating between eating pizza or pasta for my main meals! I think the difference is that Elevit has iron in it and Blackmores doesn't? It was in the section of the chemist where they have the iron tablets...
