  • The vitamin can be known to upset your stomach when taking it. With my first pregnancy, I also would throw up a lot and the pill was along what came up. The best you can do is just keep taking it each day. I found that taking the pill at night, rather than the morning, also helped so I didn't throw it up. Maybe that would help you as well. I wouldn't worry about the ones you've thrown up before. If it continues, just let your doctor know and they can give you more advice.

  • ask your doc about taking B12, it helped me soooo much... also, try taking your prenatal at night... i did with both pregnancies, never puked one up... and you can even take another one today when your sickness is over, once doing double on it wont hurt :)

  • I had trouble taking them. They made me want to throw up. You have to eat them with food and water. Not just one cracker, like a meal. It may help you. :)
