This is what I take as well.
Me three. I took them through both pregnancies but had to add a DHA because I do the prenatal/nursing one so I can stays on the same vitamin postpartum.
Also taking Rainbow Light. They are easy on the belly!
Only complaint is the iron and the calcium basically cancel each other out. So I take iron midday (with vitamin C), prenatal daily when I get home from work (along with fish oil + vitamin D) and calcium/magnesium before bed.
I just ordered the Rainbow LIght One Time Prenatal Vitamins and the Rainbow Light DHA vitamins, as on Amazon most women said they take both.

I like these too. I get them from lucky vitamin.com and they are so much cheaper than in store. Make sure they are the one a days though.

This is exactly what I take (if I can remember it everyday!). No issues with constipation either with the cal/mag to balance it out (be sure to take ferrous iron vs chelates if you do... Less chance of constipation)
Except I didn't realize it until my last blood draw and started to get near anemic levels. Easy fix though.
I started with Rainbow Light, but they have more lead in them than some of the other options (google FDA + lead + prenatals and you'll find the breakdown of the amount of lead in each brand).
I switched to New Chaptor Organics Perfect Prenatal and Nordic Naturals Prenatal DHA. Took them throughout pregnancy and continue to do so while breastfeeding.
