I am pretty sick right now with a sinus infection and they really don't want me on antibiotics due to a gut issue (it's a really long story about a nasty c-diff bug) so I'm riding it out as best I can.
Well I just realized I totally forgot to take my prenatal vitamins this weekend! I feel horrid!
Yes, it's probably fine. If you think about how many women throw up their vitamins, or many of them, and still go on to deliver happy healthy babies, then you'll feel better. Missing a day or two isn't a big deal. Just keep taking them and eating healthy. I hope you feel better!
The way my doc explained it is that the prenatals are for you not the baby. The baby will take anything that it needs from you, right down to the calcium in your teeth! Missing a few days is ok. No worries!
Right before I read this post I was thinking how ridiculously forgetful I was because every morning I wake up and have a glass a water and *I think* take my prenatal. Then I have my breakfast and about half hour later I cant remember if I did actually take it or if I just thought about taking it. So then I sometimes take another just in case. I've done that like 4 times in the last two weeks. Silly pregnant mind!
