Are gummy prenatal vitamins as good as prenatal tablet?

Yes and no. They have enough Folic Acid to be helpful, but they lack iron. Supplemental iron is very important. Many women start pregnancy with low iron already, and then the baby continues to take from you. You should find some iron supplement that you can take with these.

Can't understand the lable of the prenatal vitamins. It say one tablet and one capsule daily. Does it mean I have to take 2at once or 1morning &1nigh?

Not clear, however.. From what is written on the label this is not clear. However, I am guessing (an educated guess) that the vitamins are in the tablet & the capsule has dha.

When I take prenatal vitamins tablet my urine turns yellow but but I take the prenatal softgel caples my urine stays the same can you tell me why?

Pill absorption. Pills do not dissolve readily, so their contents do not get absorbed or reach the tissues as well. This causes some of the excretion in the urine (a waste). With gastric bypass this problem can be even more important. Seek all supplements and medications you require in capsule or liquid form. This is especially important for the common deficiencies of Vitamin D and B12 in gastric bypass. Read more...
