is it normal to throw up your prenatals 20 min after you take them even when you take them with food?

i bought the womans 1 a day prenatal vitamins the 29th i ate at home before i went to the store i took them asap and threw them up 20min later! Yesterday i ate a plain piece of bread and some grapes then took them and didnt throw up, but today i ate a apple with peanut butter and a glass of milk not even 15min did i get up to throw it all back up! is this normal? im around 8 weeks...

  • I couldn't keep them down either. My doctor recommended I take Flintstone chewables with iron and those were much easier on my stomach.

  • I had the same problem. My midwife had me taking Flintstones instead of regular prenatals.

  • Yes, it is completely normal. I was not able to hold down ANY kind of prenatal vitamins. I took Flinstones and drank Carnation Instant Breakfast.

  • I don't know if it's normal for everyone, but every single time I took a vitamin while pregnant, I threw them up. I didn't matter how I took them, what time I took them, what I took them with, I got sick.

  • I think you need to ask your doctor about switching you to a different kind.

  • I did with my first pregnancy. Just tell your Doctor and he will get you new ones.
