Pregnant after a Loss

Remembering Vitamins

How do you remember to take your prenatal vitamins?  I began taking it with my breakfast, but my nausea was so terrible that I was afraid I would just throw it back up.  I'll remember the vitamins while I'm teaching or something else where I can't swallow a horse pill.  Tell me all of the tricks!!

Re: Remembering Vitamins

  • I keep mine in the bathroom, so when I go brush my teeth before bed I see them and remember to take them.

  • I take mine every night immediately before bed.  It's become a routine for me.  I have done this with vitamins for years and it's the only way I can consistently remember to take them and don't puke them up.

  • I also take mine before bed, so it is part of my before bed routine.

  • Ditto with all the ladies who take them before bed when they brush their teeth. ( I also keep a small container of them in my purse just in case I remember the next day at work that I forgot to take it the previous day, so I can swallow it ASAP).

    This. I kept forgetting to take them in the morning because my routine gets so rushed (I love my snooze button) But I bring a bottle of water upstairs with me every night and the PNVs are right next to the bed.

  • I keep mine next to my bedstand. I get nauseated when I take it in the morning. Sad

    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
  • I have a M-F pill box that lives on the breakfast bar in our kitchen.  I take mine in the morning along with my Nexium (for GERD), and baby aspirin.  Then in the evening I take my Metformin.  I have found that have the PNV with my Nexium works for me because I never forget the Nexium.  If I do, I am very unhappy for hours. 

    I think the trick is just to find a way to make it easy on yourself, and then set some sort of reminder until it becomes habit.  Maybe try setting an alarm on your cell phone?  GL!
