    Default Elevit or Blackmores Conceive Well Gold?

    Hello ladies,

    I am wanting to start taking prenatal vitamins, but have heard and read from some people and that their doctors recommended Elevit while others recommended Blackmores Conceive Well Gold.

    What did you take or can you recommend I take?

    My girlfriend and my cousin took Elevit, but both said at different times that it made them nauseas so I was wondering whether this was a common thing?

    I'm not seeing my OB until September so was wanting to start taking some now, rather than wait and asking him in September.

    Thanks heaps
    Me (28) DH (31)

    I have been taking Elevit right from the day i got to know i was expecting as adviced by my GP.
    Till now i dont have any side effects n neither have faced any nausea.
    It is a good supplement along with a well balanced diet.

    My obs recommended Elevit and I have had no problems with this. I also take fish oil as Elevit does not contain this (while the Blackmores does but not very much).

    My GP recommended Elevit, so that's what I started taking - I have been taking it since about April now (so about 6 weeks before I fell pregnant) and have had no dramas with it, although I do take it at night after dinner... I have heard that Blackmores is good too and was actually going to take that one until my GP said Elevit. I really believe it is a personal choice.

    Good luck!

    I took the Blackmore's Conceive Well Gold until I fell and then swapped to the Blackmores Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Gold. I haven't had any problems with them, and have been told by my Uncle who is an OB that they are the best ones. I agree, but I'm a Blackmore's girl all the way. I just find they are normally stronger than other brands and work better.

    I used Elevit with DS and always found it made me nauseous, sometimes I vomited (before I was preg, so it wasn't MS). I changed the time of day I took it and made sure I had it with food and then it was fine.

    I'm taking it again while we TTC#2 and haven't been nauseous since I've been having it with food.

    Last pregnancy I took Elevit with no problems but next round my Lactation Consultant recommended Blackmores Pregnancy because it has iodine (and Elevit doesn't) and is apparently really important.. HTH
