  • I Had severe morning sickness too w/my son starting @ 6wks & I had to take mine right before bed w/ice water. it worked for me because thats when I was the least sick...itleast long enough for my body to digest/absorb the vitamins LOL I hope that helps a little!?

  • Thats how it was for me and my doctor told me that i can take the flinstone chewables. i was able to keep that down longer than anything else but you have to take 2 of them. you could always try that.

  • I was the same way, well I didn't have any morning sickness at all but couldn't stand to take my prenatal pills, my doctor suggested flinstone gummies I take 3 every day, and they are sooo good! Good luck and hang in there, the 2nd trimester does get better...I am on my third and back to being miserable with pregnancy stuff!

  • try and take them with something besides water, like soda. The carbonation in it helps, I have found. Also, you can try taking them @ night. Flinstones or chewables are just as good. Target makes a non-smelly or foul tasting prenatal. I gagged over the knock-you-out smell and taste of other ones. I hope this helps a little.
