Small prenatal vitamins?

So I'm a baby when it comes to taking pills. All of the prenatal vitamins I have tried are huge and I can't swallow them. I got the gummys, but i've been so nauseous I just can't stant the taste of them. So I was wondering if there was any prenatal vitamins out there that are small maybe like close to the size of an Aleve (that might sound crazy)?

  • You may be able to get some that are easy to cut in half and take that way? Sorry I'm not much help.

  • yes they make them, I was taking them for awhile I think it was from Wal-Mart , Life source, Life something sorry it has been awhile, but it should show you a pic on the side of the bottle as to the size of pill. Good luck

  • I had the absolute worst time when i was pregnant with my daughter.. couldnt take iron or prenatals cuz of the size and taste i actually lost 25 pounds during pregnancy from not bein able to take them and not eating and all so a friend of mine who was also pregnant advised me to take flinstones vitamins ( the ones that say complete on the box) take two instead of one.. just chew them up and swallow! they helped alot and every dr visit my iron was perfect! my daughter is now 3 months and is perfect so try it! hope this helps :)

  • yes they make them, they also make a liquid form; I would talk to your doctor or OB/GYN and see what they suggest

  • Ask your dr. but usually you can take 2 Flintstone vitamins.

  • I hate to say this but I will be 4 months tomorrow and I started taking my vitamins a week ago. I can only take the flintstone sour gummy vitamins. I was so sick the first three months I was hospitalized. I couldnt eat or drink and I even stopped urinating. When I went to the Dr. they told me the baby was fine and that they get what they need regardless because they take it from you. So if you cant take anything right now it may be ok because the baby is still getting it's nutrients... Hope this helps
