So I had a suspicion that my vitamins were making my morning sickness worse. So I did an experiment :-)

I took my vitamin Wednesday night like normal. The next day I felt terrible!! Sick all day long and severe fatigue all day as well. I was so sick Thursday night that I couldn't even stomach the thought of taking my vitamin. So I didnt. Friday morning I had a smidge of morning sickness but was actually able to eat ALL day long!!

SO...last night I took my vitamin again and once again I felt like poo all day long. Now I don't even want to take it at all!!

I need some suggestions on what to do. Im so scared if I don't take it my baby will come out with 3 heads lol

That happened with my second. I told my doctor and had me try another vitamin. He pretty much had me try different ones until I knew which one worked with my body best. Now I'm taking one that is making me tired. I have to ask him tomorrow if I can take it at night cause it is making me even more tired then normal.

I go to the doctor on Thursday and I'm going to ask about changing. I hate to not take my vitamins at all until then but it makes my word days really hard when I do take them

Oh and btw....I didn't take them last night and I feel fantastic today!!

For my first and second pregnancies I had pretty bad m/s. I was told to take flintstones kids. It helped for some odd reason.

Maybe try a vitamin with a higher dose of b6, or even pick up some b6 to take with your vitamin, it is supposed to help reduce nausea. When I can't stomach the prenatals I just take 2 flintstones, an additional 400mcg of folic acid, and 25-50mg of b6.

I hate vitamins, too. I wish I could take the little flintsone gummie ones, but I know that wouldn't give me the vitamins I need. But, they're the only vitamins that don't mess with me or make me sick and tired! Stupid vitamins!

Do you girls have a healthfood store around?? I get mine there and they actually have ginger and extra b6 in them against m/s. These are the ones I take:
