Recs for a good prenatal vitamin? Trying to find one as natural as possible.

I take the NatureMade + DHA one. I don’t know how natural it is but it’s a soft gel so it’s easy to take.

I take this one too. I got it from a local drugstore chain and no issues with smell.

My OB recommended Pure Encapsulations. Available on Amazon, no smell

The best tasting are the Whole Foods gummies but you will need to supplement iron. They are like candy.

I’ve been using Ritual vitamins (fish oil aftertaste, but you don’t need to take them with food) and MyKind organic gummies (need to take with food)

Garden of life mykind from Whole Foods

Mine are probably not the most natural but I wanted gummies and a one stop solution - so I used a mix of First Response gummies and now shifted to Smarty Pants (DHA included with the rest of the regular prenatal vitamin stuff)

MegaFood Baby and Me2, they are made from veggies and fruit. can get on their website or Amazon. Possibly at WF too.

Anyone have any experience with this Tudor Prince chronograph? They’re “vintage” models from the 90’s but think it’s absolutely beautiful. It’s like a mini Daytona. And runs on the tried and true 7750 movement. Just wondering if it’s worth $4.5-5K. Seriously considering

First time mom, and I am going through a identity crisis. I quit my career of 12 yrs. The overachiever in me decided to return from maternity leave earlier. I was dealing with PPD and anxiety, I realized it was too much. I worked my butt off to climb up the ranks to be in a director role, $170k. I left it to work part time in HR for Takeda pharma. I started this week, I work 20 hrs, remote and $55k. I’m scared. Any advice? I want to return to FT in 1.5 years. Thanks

I'm so tired of pretend play.

If you're a household that isn't doing daycare/preschool or going out, what do you do for fun? (And no pinterest activities that require 30 minutes of prep for 5 minutes of play lol) Do you have a schedule for the day? I feel like we did at the beginning, and now it's just all free play, and I'm bored out of my mind.
