Prenatal Vitamins

I'm on a prescription prenatal vitamin - I take one in the morning and one in the evening. I just noticed that I totally missed last night's pill. Is missing one an issue at this point in the pregnancy? I haven't missed a single pill until now! I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later because I've been forgetting the evening pill until just before I go to bed!

I wouldn't worry about 1 missed pill. I've missed taking my prenatals a couple of times. It shouldn't be a problem.

I completely stopped taking them for a while during my worst of morning sickness, I tried taking them at night but just swallowing that horse pill gagged me... I think you are ok Wink The most important time actually, I read, is suppose to be prior to pregnancy and in the very beginning stages of the pregnancy- mostly for the folic acid for development. Its good to take them everyday too bc the baby will get what he or she needs usually but end up draining you... but like I said I stopped for weeks just bc I couldnt tolerate the horse pill LOL

I actually went three weeks without my prenatals when my morning sickness was at it's worst... I managed to take some Flintstones vitamins a few days during that time, but other than that, I couldn't do it.

Missing a vitamin here and there is okay - your baby gets most of what they need from your body at this point! Smile
