Besides prenatals or other vitamins, are you taking any meds?

I actually haven't been taking my vitamins and I think it's contributing to my low energy level. Well start again in the morning.

I am not currently taking anything other than prenatal vitamins and occasionally Tylenol for a headache. But this summer cold I have is getting out of control and my ears are starting to ache. I am afraid I am going to need something and I hate taking meds when pregnant.

Nexium in the morning, Pepcid at bedtime.

Zofran, phenergan, benadryl as needed for nausea. Only throwing up 3 times a week now on average but I feel nauseous almost all the time still

Zofran twice a day, tums - I have a feeling I'll need to switch to something more powerful for my reflux soon. Though I think I've made it longer than I did last pregnancy. Found a way to fold a blanket and raise my head a bit more that's helped me not choke on my stomach acid at night.

Oh, and a probiotic every other day.

Otherwise, I'm so horrible remembering to take any vitamins.

havent taken the prenatal in a while. just felt icky and attributed it to that. i may need to start taking them again b/c every time i see sand on the tv, i want a mouth full. weird.

i take prilosec every couple of days for the heartburn/reflux. but i think that makes my stomach feel weird b/c i throw up usually the same day i take it. but it's either that or the burning of the acid.

i also take bp meds.

I take prenatals every day and occasionally a Tums for acid reflux. I have an inhaler and nebulizer in case I need it for my asthma but so far I haven't needed it at all! Fingers crossed it stays that way.

I take my pre-natals, progesterone injections IM once weekly, and I take hydrocodone on an as needed basis for pain. I was on Lyrica before getting prego and I loved how it wasn't a narcotic and it was actually something that really helped with my nerve pain but since it's a newer drug my OB wanted me to go back to the hydrocodone. I usually end up cutting it in 1/2 becuase I don't care for the feeling it gives me but sometimes i can't avoid taking it. For me on the days my ankle pain (I have 8 pins and 6 wires and a severed nerve) gets to be too much it causes me to feel panicky and I get a very rapid heartrate and usually hyperventilate so this seemed to be the best option. On so so pain days I just take tylenol and tighten my brace.

i take my prenatal everyday (or Nate would get after me about baby's nutritional needs.. i'm so lucky to be living with an expert on all things baby related) and i take some antibiotics, because since i've gotten pregnant, i've had 2 sinus infections and a chest infection. i'm currently in the process of trying to decide if i'm having another chest infection, or if it's just a chest cold.
