  • I think this is just regular morning sickness, not related to the pills.

  • Cows milk is for baby cows, you shouldn't be drinking it anyway.

    Eat well balanced meals, lots of fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains- There is honestly less in a prenatal vitamin that is usable to your body than what you get from proper nutrition. Those are designed to supplement the american diet.

  • change to soy milk, or almond milk. Hormones related to pregnancy can sometimes cause a temporary stoppage in lactase production. Multivitamins along with many other meds, have to be washed out of the stomach and into the small intestine to prevent the nausea. It's when the pill sits in the stomach and breaks down that you get the upset. Use a full eight ounce glass of WATER to take your vitamin with and take it with a small snack. GL, sometimes the Iron can just to be too much for some folks, I could never stand it either.

  • I always took mine at night just before bed, it seemed to help. A friend told me that drinking o.j. with hers helped.

  • If milk is making your tummy upset then dont drink it try something else for a while, try peppermint oil on a tissue if you feel like your going to be sick, just dont get it on your skin it will burn.
