Do your prenatals....

make you very very tired? They make me so intensly tired I cant function. At first I thought it was just the pregnancy but one day I forgot to take the prenatal and I was a bubble of energy all day. The next day I took it and felt tired and crappy all day again. I take them for the baby but if I need a day where I need more energy I somply dont take them and its so much easier to get through the day. Am I the only one? My doc looked at my like I was a looney toon when I told her this.

  • Yup mine make me feel icky too. What I do is take them when you go to bed. You're still getting nutrients for you and baby, you just get to sleep through the effects!!
