Prenatal Vitamins make me sick! :(

I mean sick sick...sick to my stomach for at least an hour or two, with or without vomiting. What else can I take besides that? I've heard 2 flintestone's vitamins? Is that true? Otherwise what else?
(And yes, I take it right after a good meal..doesn't help)

  • I couldn't take the prenatals either. My Doctor told me during my last pregnancy to take two flinstones chewables daily. That is what I have done during that pregancy and this one as well. Good Luck Mama.

  • When I was carrying my son, the only way I could take my prenatals was right before I went to bed! That way, I went to sleep and didn't get nauseous!

  • they have chewable ones... also pnv that have b6 in it help with getting sick... flintstones dont have enough folic acid in it which is what you really need.... maybe look at getting a folic acid vitamin so you get that at least!!

  • Yes, I took flinstones along with folic acid.. double check cause I can't remember if there was another one in there too but I couldn't take my prenatals either.

  • My doctor said that it would be fine to take two flinstone vitamins instead. I even had a hard time with those but they were better than getting nothing in me.
