Identified a Culprit

My acupuncturist suggested that I break temporarily from taking my prenatal vitamins and see what happens with the morning sickness symptoms.  I did for a little more than a week and in that week I’ve felt better than ever.  Then yesterday I took it and I felt terrible.  Using my (expert, of course) CSI skills, I deduct that my vitamins are making me sick.

Any suggestions on a prenatal vitamin that doesn’t cause or increase chance of morning sickness?

  1. The only thing that helps me is taking them at night before bed. Not sure when you’re taking them now but if I take them in the morning or during the day they make me yack. Hope that helps!

  2. Agreed! I have taken my vitamin before bed for years now. Also, usually taking it on an empty stomach can make it worse so usually I take mine about an hour or so after dinner and have never had a problem after I do that. Glad you found an answer and hope you feel better soon!

  3. I started taking the Target brand gummies and it has helped me. They don’t have iron or calcium, but my RE said that was okay if I kept them down. I take a calcium chew as well and prescription folic acid/ vitamin B complex. Good luck!

  4. I like the Wal-mart brand of pre-natals. Can’t remember the name, but they are in a dark bottle with a yellow lid. They’ve never made me sick and I still take them now, four yrs since my daughter was born! I second taking them at night right after dinner.
