    We definitely do multivitamins and a calcium supplement with vitamin D (we live in the northeast, so most of us up here are deficient).
    We use Flintstones brand, though we also use Target brand called Up and Up for multivitamin. It comes in chewable or gummie. This brand is less expensive. Walmart also carries a comparable brand too. As for calcium, we use Citrical plus D3.
    We use the Delica 28 in our lancer.

    After dx we started the whole family on vitamin D supplements as per endo's recommendation. We use the drops presently.

    Ashleigh takes a multivitamin because she is vitamin D deficient. As for brand we just use a store brand of vitamin. The lancets Ashleigh uses the one touch ultra soft lancets. Not sure how big they are. I couldn't find the info on the box (it might be covered by the prescription sticker the pharmacy puts on it)
