Not sure.  Do you take any vitamins at all?   Truthfully what i was told and you can look at the labels, womens one a day or something similar is just the same as prenatal.   What are you hoping does or does not happen if they are not taken?

 It's possible that your baby won't get the nutrients it needs, especially if you don't get the nutrients yourself from your diet and lifestyle. Pregnancy is draining on your body's resources, and everything you ingest or don't ingest effects your unborn child and how well your pregnancy goes. Everything from "morning sickness" to energy levels to complications... If you have issues with the prenatal vitamins, if you cannot keep them down, sometimes they recommend alternatives. Talk with your doctor about it.

Nothing. You can take a multivitamin instead.

You can take a gummy multi vitamin or a gummy prenatal instead of the regular ones.

Just eat really healthy and make sure you get enough frolic acid. My OB told me that I could take 2 Flinestone Vitamins a day, since the prenatal vitamins made me sick.

Me too.

Hello! Congratulations! I was pregnant with my first child at 20. I didn't start taking pre natal vitamins until I was almost 7 months along (that's when I found out I was expecting).

Why do you not want to take them? do they make you sick? Talk with your doc, there are other things you can take, as the moms above mentioned.
