pre-natal vit making m/s worse?

has anyone noticed their prenatal vit making their m/s worse?  I have had such bad m/s and I have been at a loss...it might be co-incidence, but today i actually felt a little better...then I remembered I did not take my vit, within an hour I was dry heaving again....I take the one a day with added DHA?  My Ob recommended it? 

anyone else have this issue?

Re: pre-natal vit making m/s worse?

  • My prenatals haven't made me sick, but have you tried taking it right after eating a meal? I think some ladies take theirs at night instead of in the morning and have better luck that way too. If not you could always try a different prenatal.
  • I take mine right before bed and have no sickness from them. When I first started taking them, I was taking them in the am and was totally feeling sick.

  • multivitamins are known to make some people with sensitive stomachs nauseated.  I tend to feel nauseated after taking them, and I bought one that is supposed to be gentler on the stomach.  I also started taking them right before bed so that I slept through any nausea I might feel.  Have you thought of trying this out?
  • Taking it right before bed should help.  If not, discuss with your doctor about other options.  Are you throwing it up or does it just make you feel sick?  If you can't keep the vitamin down, definitely talk to your doctor about other options because it's important.

    I keep it down, but I am incredibly nauseated, for a lack of a bteer description it feels like right before you throw up...the whole time...and then I start dry heaving...but at least in stays in....I am going to try this, thanks ladies!

  • It's the Iron in them.  If taking them at night doesn't help try getting the gummy kind from target. They usually don't have as much if any.   You can go back to the other ones after the ms has gotten better.

  • Prenatal vitamins can definitely make m/s worse. I am taking folic acid and B6 vitamin with Unisom at bedtime to help. I will also start taking fish oil in the second trimester. This is what my midwife told me to do.

  • Yup.  My prenatals make me nauseous.  I have to eat a fairly good sized meal before taking them and that really eliminates most of my discomfort...from the prenatals anyway...

  • I had to switch mine and only take them before bed. I was completely not functional when I took them during the day. It's definitely an improvement now!

  • Does your prenatal have Iron in it? Those are usually the ones that make people the most nauseous. You could take the prenatal gummy vitamins, because those are usually easier on the stomach. I started taking those a couple of nights ago.

  • My prenatal is a 3 times a day which makes it easier on the belly. It's harder to digest when it's packed into 1 vitamin, this way it's everything we need but spread out. You could try to find one that is a 3 times a day one. I got mine at a local health food store.

  • I take the same one and take it at dinner every night. I haven't had any issues with it making my sick since I started taking it then.

  • I can't take vitamins with iron in them. Even when I was just taking a normal multi-vitamin, I had to use Flintstones gummies because they have no iron. Otherwise, I feel sick and I have horrible stomach cramps.

    I am currently using CVS brand gummies, no iron (they are in fruit shapes!), and a non-fish DHA supplement (I burp a lot these days and the smell and taste of fish make me nauseous so I can't take those, either).

    Good luck!

  • With my second pregnancy, I had try several different kinds before I found one that didn't make me feel sick.  I do take mine at night and it seems to help.  Some people are just sensitive to prenatal's.  Ask your Dr.  You may have to take the gummy kind.

  • Another vote for taking them at night!  Before I even started taking prenatals for DD a friend warned me they can make you sick and taking before bed can help.

  • I agree with the comments about iron. I had problems with prenatal vitamins during my first pregnancy. Since I really needed the iron, I took a prenatal vitamin without the iron, and combined with Slow Fe (easier on your system)
  • they make me feel worse if I take it without food and also right as I'm taking it because it's gross. But mine has B6 which actually helps with m/s. For my first pregnancy I noticed the opposite -- I'd feel worse on the few days I skipped the pill than on the days I took it. Even though as I'm taking it, it makes me want to throw up.

  • Random, but I just noticed that prenatals differ on the content of vitamins and minerals across brands. And not just iron. Gummies have less in other areas as well. Across multiple brands at target, the up & up regular prenatals have the highest percentages across the board.

    Me too...try it at night
