Have you tried the prenatal gummies? They don't have iron in them, but they are better than nothing.

I've never been able to keep prenatals down until now, I finally found some that don't upset my stomach at all & that says something! They are from GNC & I'm tellin' ya their awesome - also what I love about GNC is they have a 14 day money back garantee so if their not awesome for you you get your money back. It's a win win imo.

my husband force feeds them to me... or he'll treat me like a pet and hide one in yogert or something! Smile He will even bring them if we go out for dinner or to my parents house. I HATE THEM.. NONE have ever sat right with me either :puke2:. and my husband says I wimp out by taking just the gummys, he doesnt' think they are as good. Its one of those things I can't win. They arn't so bad now, but early pregnancy its super hard to keep them down, never mind the size! I've just gotten DH to chill out about the extra DHA pill he was giving me. That wasn't a good combo for me either.

My midwife told me to take two Flinstones or two regular kid's gummy vitamins. It's way easier on my stomach than the horrible prenatals.

I was going to suggest this.

I take mine right before bed- that seems to help me with the nausea they cause.

Yep. I took two Flinstone Completes when I was pregnant with DD. This time around...I forget most of the time. It's awful, but honestly, I just keep telling myself that the prenatals are more of a precaution "just in case". And more for me honestly, than the baby. The baby is going to take every last essential vitamin and nutrient from my body that s/he needs...the prenatals are more to make sure there is enough leftover for me too. But I eat a lot, so I think it's okay. Or at least that's how I justify forgetting a lot of the time...

I take the Flinstone gummies, and folic acid separately. I can't swallow big pills, I don't even know how they would make me feel.

But my neighbor didn't take prenatals with either of her pregnancies because she couldn't keep them down, and she has 2 healthy girls!

I had been through 3 pre-natals, Flintstones for kids and the gummies and all made me throw up until I tried these. They are no problem for me. Thank you, Chimmy, for the recommendation.

I didn't take prenatals with my boys but my ob told me to eat healthy, lots of fruits and veggies. I had 3 very healthy boys.

Since my baby daddy is different with this pregnancy. My nurse told me to take the prenatal gummies that they sell at Babies r us. So far, they don't make me sick.
