  • Just make sure what you do eat is nutritious even if it's hard to keep it down. Prenatal vitamins are only useful for added nutrients/minerals but there's nothing in them you can't get from the right foods. Hopefully your morning sickness will subside in a few weeks and you'll be able to keep all those good things in you :)

  • Try taking them at night when you go to bed ot with an apple or apple juice, the pectin in apples natural eases nausea.

    -----or ask your doc for his/her okay and----

    Try two chewable flintstone vitamins just until the nausea eases up.

  • I didn't take any vitamins....I figure we have been having children since the beginning of time and we made it just fine with out them before.

  • I do not know. But maybe try the ensure drinks. I had surgery a couple of times and that is what they told me to try. They come in all sorts of flavors and help with different things. Maybe try those I know I was sick the whole time with all three of my kids. I even liked cold fruit cups. Just do not give up. To be truefull I was so sick I did not take mine and just ate right and all three of my girls are fine.
