Vitamins

So I just started taking prenatal vitamins, and my stomach didn't agree with it. Is it common for when you first start taking vitamins that it gives you the runs (sorry for the tmi)? Has this happen to you?

Usually they do the opposite! Give it a couple weeks for your body to adjust!

very common to have them upset stomach

and it will last probably forever

on a good note - you will not have the runs for long probably - the iron will constipate you a little

Yeah, you can try out different ones.. 

I have found bellybar vitamins, and I take them at night before bed. They haven't made me sick yet.

These are Enfamil Expecta prenatal dietary suplement. It says to take 1 multivitamin and 1 mineral tablet.

Do the gummies work just as well? do they have the same amount of vitamins in them? where do you get the gummies?

I like the Rainbow Light prenatal vitamins.  I've been taking them for 2.5 years w/ no bad side effects.  They are very gentle on the stomach.
