I am so nauseous and have trouble swallowing my prenatal. They are really small, I take the prenate mini. Even though they're small I just gag at the thought of taking it. I go a few days without it. Then I'll feel ok and I'm able to get it down. Then I'll go a few more days without it. So I get it down a few times a week. I'm definitely not getting any vitamins from my diet right now. I'm living off mac and cheese and hi-c juice boxes. Anyone else having this problem??

  • Have you tried the gummy prenatals? That's what I take and I've never had a problem with them.
  • Totally having this problem. I've gagged so many times.

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

  • Mine are horse pills that taste like they have a floral fragrance. Yuck. I have no choice though as they are prescribed. (MTHFR) I find it easier to take them at night and with a drink that masks the flavor. According to my new due date I'm 12 weeks and I still gag. Wondering if it ever goes away lol
  • I was going to get the vita fusion gummies just until I feel better, but it says those have 4000 iu of vitamin a. I think the rda is 2500iu for pregnant women
  • I also took mine before bed, but I really wasn't too sick this time around.

  • I take mine at night also. I just got the spring valley gummies. They should work for now :)
  • Heck yeah and mine is 3 daily. Bleh.
  • 3?! Omg I would die right now with 3
  • I knowwwww it's a struggle and I avoid it all day until I can't anymore. It was expensive so I'm finishing it and then maybe switching to some delicious gummies!:)
  • Ask your doctor for samples of or a rx for Select OB. The prenatal I'd chewable and tastes like a crunch berry. I say prenatal because it also comes with a DHA soft gel.
