Vitamin side-affects anyone?

So I told my Doctor about the awful nausia and just all over body aches that I get when I take my daily prenatal vitamin. Somedays it gets pretty bad and I usually get so ill I fall asleep and don't come to till several hours later.

I was told to take them at night so I slept through this anyway :(
Also I was told that I'm anemic- and that I needed to add 2-3 iron pills along w/ my vitamin everyday...
Since doing that- I HAVE FELT LIKE WONDERWOMAN! Its really freaky and amazing :)

  • Yup, I was just like you. I had to take my prenatals right before falling asleep (as in, already laying in bed awhile, starting to drift off) so I would sleep through the nausea. The iron made a big difference in my energy level.

  • Make sure with the extra iron that you are drinking LOTS of water, or you will be in danger of some pretty bad constipation :)
