Did you skip your prenatals?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I started taking my prenatals at around 8 weeks. When did you start?

I sometimes skip them as well, not intentionally, because I literally KO when I say I'm just going to take a quick rest on the bed. I take them at night to avoid the upset stomach feeling. Do you sometimes forget about them?

Just wanting to see what other mom's patterns are or were like because I'm starting to get paranoid about the consequences of not taking them or starting late since I feel like I did start late. Just a little over thinking this I guess.

I was taking them before pregnancy and once I got pregnant NONE of them would agree and I would puke them up so I started taking Flintstones gummies....when I remembered and I still have birth to a healthy 8 lb 1 oz baby girl

I started taking them as soon as I knew I was pregnant. There have been nights when I forget them here or there.

I took them from weeks 4 to about week 14 and then stopped.

I started taking mine as soon as if our out which was 6 weeks. The ones the dr gave me made me so sick. I did some research and found an all natural and organic prenatal at te health food store. Rainbow light Organic prenatal vitamins I had no problem with them and could take ten on an empty stomach. After I had my ds I switched over to the women's one. And still love them
