Pre-natal vitamin advice

I am 23 weeks along in my third pregnancy and for some reason this time around I am having some issues with my pre-natal vitamin. It doesn;t upset my stomach or anything but I am constantly belching up the nasty irony taste after I take it. It's disgusting! Do you ladies know of any tricks to help prevent this?

I had that problem too with the prescribed prenatal vitamins. The store bought ones don't. Are you taking the prescribed vitamins?

Maybe look into takin a reflux pill with it?  What brand vitamin are you taking?  Make sure you have food in your stomach when you take any iron supplement.

I always took mine right before I went to sleep at night.

Most of the time they make me feel nauseous, but figured out I should eat before I take them, helps with the irony taste.

My doctor put me on Flintstones because the pre-natal ones bothered me.

Can't read your post. All your words are squished together.
Edit; try taking the vitamin at night and put the vitamin in a spoon of peanut butter.
