  • Yeah I missed a few days because the pharmacy I use,CVS... Ahem sucks! they said they never got the prescription. So I called my Docs office and they said they faxed it over.... So they faxed it again... same thing. It took 4 faxes and a phone call to get my prenatals

  • I have never been good at remembering to take pills. I constantly forget to take my vitamins and have with all of my pregnancies. All of my kids are really healthy though so apparently it's not too big a deal.
