Pregnant Ladies: Do you take your prenatal vitamins everyday?

Mommies: did you take your prenatal vitamins everyday when you were pregnant?

Nursing Mommas: Are you still taking your prenatal vitamins?

I did take my prenatal vitamins everyday when I was pregnant and I am still taking them everyday now that I am nursing. I will usually try to take them when I eat my breakfast. I need food on my stomach or they make me sick.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I took them every day with Natalie and continued while nursing. I try to take them every day with this one but it depends if I'm puking or not.

I had to switch to regular gummy vitamins in the first trimester for several weeks because the prenatals made me feel really really nauseated. But I got back on them about a month ago) I think and I take them almost every day (sometimes I forget).

I took folic acid throughout TTC and most of the first tri but I am not bothering anymore. I take an iron+B vitamins liquid supplement occasionally when I feel like I need it and have not been eating much red meat. I also take a calcium-magnesium drink powder when I have not been getting much dairy or I feel achey. But overall I avoid multivitamins and especially prenatals. They all make me sick and IMO there is no evidence that vitamins do any good unless they address specific deficiencies. My doctors have always been fine with my self designed regimens folic acid in the first several weeks after conception by far being their biggest concern.
