  • I didn't take mine for a few months because they made me sick and stuff. I started taking them again at maybe six months, but only after I've eaten breakfast so I'll have a full stomach.

    Just make sure that if you aren't taking them you're eating healthy foods that make up for some of the vitamin losses. Your baby will take whatever it needs from you whether you take the vitamins or not!

  • I couldn't take prenatals. If our body did like mine and makes enough you don't need to worry about it. I tried to take them but they made me sick because it made my body go on a over load. It is like my body just made up the differernce I even tried taking flinstone vitamins because it is recomended to take something...but still made me sick so my OB told me not to take anything....

  • I wasn't able to take prenatals with either of my girls. For many reasons. Both of my girls turned out fine even my oldest who was a cereal and mexican food baby... lol. It's always your choice! So no you are not the only one not taking vitamins.

  • I can't take them either. Vitamins in general make me sick. My son is very healthy and so far this is a very healthy pregnancy (am almost 28 weeks along). If your baby needs something s/he will take it from you. The vitamins are more for you. However, your body doesn't actually digest vitamins well so as long as you are eating a proper diet than you are getting more than those vitamins could give you.

  • Take 2 flintstones everynight. You'll be fine. No symptoms. You need the folic acid!!!
