  • You SHOULD take them daily, but it's not going to seriously hurt anything if you forget now and then. MY prenatals made me so nauseous that I switched to a kid's chewable.

  • I appointed my husband the prenatal pill dispenser, and he got me pills every day of my pregnancy. I'd forget otherwise, and it gives him another small way to participate in our pregnancy.

  • I'm not taking any prenatal pills and my baby is fine- all my blood tests have come back normal, and I get a high amount of folic acid in my diet already.
