Have you eaten with them? Tried different kinds?



Just make sure you are eating well. You can take a multi vitamin and an iron supplement and should be fine. I'd ask your doctor about just taking a multi and any other supplement you may need.

I was like that with both my previous babies & they are fine.
Have you tried taking the gummies? Those helped me some. You take 2 a day, so you can split them into one in the morning & one in the afternoon & take with food. When I was really bad I cut the gummies into tiny pieces & took them little by little over the day.

Yep - they make gummy prenatals even....though my Ob said childrens vitamins are fine if you take 2 (in case I couldn't find prenatals, but I did find them fine).

The food thing definitely rang true for me. I ate them at night with dinner. Otherwise I was sickypants.

I can't swallow pills so I was taking the gummies.
I tried many methods to not get sick or feel like shit (like taking then before bed, taking with food etc) and nothing worked so I stopped taking prenatals around 5 months and don't supplement at all just with healthy foods.My iron level was always critical but dropped super low. Turns out the gummies don't even have iron because they look too much like candy to kids....



I'm supposed to be on prescription iron 3x a day. I said f**k that too causes crazy constipation on top of already crazy 3rd trimester constipation (stool softner made me sick as hell) and will just be getting an iron Iv during my induction today.



With all that being said you can get away with not taking anything, but it's not recommended. Even if you have to supplement with food do that or take kids vitamins && flinstones iron.
