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!

Think it's OK?

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!

Don't feel bad! Some women aren't able to stomach them at all through their whole pregnancy. Forgetting for the weekend sure isn't going to hurt anything.

Prenatals are for you, not the baby.

Thanks ladies!! I feel a lot better about it.

Maybe the vits will help me get better faster... Right now I'm living in the tub with Johnson's Vapor Bath (I LOVE that stuff!!)

They told me to stop taking them because I just get sick with them. So it is ok!

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!

My doctor told me that after the first trimester it's not a big deal and they don't even know if they're necessary anymore but they usually tell you to keep taking them "in case."

It's mainly for you - your baby will be fine.

If it makes you feel better I haven't taken mine since 6ish weeks. They are huge and I just can't swallow them.
