They made me super sick as well so I stopped taking them and just ate healthier. I have 5 kids and they are all super healthy, no problems at all, and barely ever get sick.

I had to keep mine in the fridge. For some reason taking them cold didn't make me sick.

switch to a regular multivitamin they have iron and that is probably what is upsetting you stomach.if you are worried that their isnt enough folic acid you can take an additional folic acid pill. this is what my friends dr. told her to do beause it made her sick like it is you

I switched from one a day, to gummies and finally to nature made prenatals. The nature made didn't make me sick in the slightest. And I was throwing everything up.
Hope this helps!

Omega-3 is very important to take during pregnancy because it will help to support the healthy development of baby’s brain, eyes, and nervous system.

Try taking them with more food. Maybe at dinner time.

 I tried several different kinds even a "new and improved" not supposed to make anyone sick kind with no luck, my doc said 2 children's vitamins would be fine
