13 weeks not taking prenatal vitamins!


Okay ladies I took prenatals for my 1st month but they made me too nauseous didn't take them a whole month just started again & same very extremely nauseous
My question is how bad is it for my baby if I don't take them anymore? I have a really healthy diet but I refuse to vomit > LOL

I thought you didn't need them after 12 weeks if you have a varied diet I know folic acid stops at 12 weeks? I'm not taking one either just iron and folic acid my bubbas are coming on nicely I believe! Should be fine

Thanks cuffy !
My doctor just prescribed me like 10 boxes each box is for 1 month so I automatically thought I'll have to take them through the whole pregnancy lol

Americans are quite into their vitamins I think. I wouldn't worry if they make you feel ill the benefits dont really outweigh you feeling sick as a dog constantly. Just eat lots of leafy greens, veggies, fruit, iron rich meat, milk etc and you wont even need the vitamins

I haven't been taking mine as i should be. I'm just so nauseous I usually vomit them back up before they can do any good.
Guess i'll just have to hope for the best.

Well, I probably would try another kind..

I've taken these- they have ginger in them and help relieve nausea-

Also.. when I was preggo with my son almost 9 years ago~ I had the SAME problem- they would never stay down- I ended up taking the Kids Flinstones vitamins- my doc said something was better than nothing.. so that's what I did a good portion of my pregnancy and my son turned out fine!

Mine make me nauseous so I take them right before bed. I've had better luck with that... just a thought

You aren't alone. I haven't been taking mine either. They make me feel horrible no matter when I take them. I am trying to eat well but that's proving hard as well.
