Gummy Flinstones as Prenatles...

Since my regular prenatals make me queezy do you think its a good idea to swich to just gummy flinstones? Sound better than pills. Cause im already taking Regalen for nausea. i feel that all im takin are pills pills.

  • They'll be fine, I had to take the kids vitamins instead of the prenatal vitamins because they made me sick too.

  • I took Flintstones gummies per instructions from my OB. We had tried several different prenatals, in different ways. Before eating. Late at night. Half in the morning, the other half at night... on a full stomach, on an empty stomach... it was insane.

    I was on Reglan too, and Nexium. :]

  • I take 2 Flintstones complete, but the chewable kind. It was suggested by my ob. I even compared the Flintstones and one a day prenatals and taking two Flintstones is comparable and in some cases better than 1 prenatal. And they don't get me sick. Whereas the prenatals were getting me sick.

  • Check with your Dr. By the way, you are a brave woman for taking Reglan! That stuff made me crazy and super depressed!

  • No. You need the extra folic acid. Yes it's necessary for baby's brain and central nervous system development.

  • Yes. I work for an OB and she tells patients with extreme nausea that Flinstones are perfectly fine. The reason being that you are better off taking vitamins that you won't throw up than ones that you will. If you're throwing up not only do you miss out on the nutrients of the prenatal vits but you are also putting yourself at risk for dehydration. She's been a respected ob for 25 years and has 5 children of her own btw!
