Hubby and I plan to start TTC in June or July, so after doing heaps of research, I bought the Blackmores Conceive Well Gold about a month ago. I only took them for about 4 or 5 days because the taste and smell repulsed me, to the point where I'd still be dry reaching an hour later. It didn't matter what I took them with (food, no food, water, milk, soft drink, etc) I still really struggled to take them, so just stopped them altogether. Now as the time to TTC draws closer, I thought I should at least be taking something, so after some more research, I bought Megafol 0.5 (folic acid tablets) today.
I just wanted to see what the general consensus is about pre-conception vitamins vs taking JUST folate? I figure, folate is the most important so at least if I can take that, hopefully i'm making up for everything else in my diet. Then I start to doubt myself, and feel selfish that just because I struggle to take two tablets each day, my baby could be born with problems... ughhhh. I guess I just want some reassurance that what i'm doing is ok, or maybe a recommendation of a vitamin that doesn't taste so bad!
