Taking Your Vitamins
bsarazin posted:
I just kind of wanted to get a feel from the group about prenatal vitamins. I know that they are very important. However, I have been so sick in the mornings that I can't psych myself up to swallowing those little "gaggers". Has anyone else had the same problem? Any suggestions??

I'm having a hard time as well. I tried taking them in the middle of the day. At night. Nothing is helping. I've pretty much given up and am taking DD's chewable Flintstone vitamins.
Me(32) DH(33) and our babes DS(3) DD(2) and Baby 3 due 8/4 ... yellow team!

Lurking from 2nd trimester... They sell gummy prenatal vitamins now. I have seen them at Walmart and maybe Kroger's. You could try those and see if they're easier to swallow. HTH.

hey!! i use the gummy chewable prenatal vitamins.. they are kinda coated with a sugary substance and are actually pretty good. sometimes i want to eat more than 2. with my first pregnancy i had to use chewable finstones because everything i tried made me sooo sick.. the name of the vitamins is vita-fusion prenatals. i get them at walmart for a little over 11 dollars.. i hope this helps..

Take it right before you eat... It was the only way I could keep them from coming up with DD

What works for me is eating cereal as soon as I wake up. Then I wait for about 20 minutes and then take my vitamins. I take it with warm peppermint (100% peppermint, no other ingredients) tea. Cold beverages do not sit well in the morning for me.

I take 2 flinstone gummies a day and I dont feel as sick as when I take those nasty prenatals. Dr. recommended!
Jenn 24, DH Jeff 24, Kailia 5, Jeffrey Jr 3, Jeyliana 16 mos. Baby number 4 due 8/16/11. What an adventure.

I also take the Flintstone gummies (take 2- you can take 2 regular if you don't like the gummy texture). They don't make me feel queasy at all. I had a terrible time with regular prenatal vitamins and couldn't keep them down.

I take mine at night as prenatals can cause nausea and I've had no problems.
