Oh my gosh, I DREAD taking my prenatals.  I mean, I seriously dread it.  They make me so nauseous.  Ok, so for me, from what I can tell, I get nauseous when I cannot digest- so I ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS try to take them with a sparkling water or a Blue Sky (or whole foods natural) soda.  I still feel sick, but for whatever reason, having something that helps me “burp it out” helps me to digest.  Gross, I know, but we do what we can, don’t we!

As someone who is perpetually nausesous I sympathize with your not really wanting to try again. LOL I so know that feeling. Grimacing the whole time and waiting for the nausea to hit is no fun. I am not pregnant nor ttc yet but the answer for ME was prenatal vitamins. If I take premesis I have no nausea {cue music hallelujah hallelujah hal-le-lu-jah} lol. I cantake it any time of day with or without food and feel fine! yay! I then take calcium, fishoil etc in the afternoon as premesis is not a complete prenatal vitamin. After taking premesis I can even stand to take iron supplements which is a bonafide miracle. I am so thankful for a solution to the unrelenting nausea I have experienced for years.

@jasonashley:  Generally if they say three times per day they mean three different times per day.  🙁   I would call and ask for something else.

I’d also recommend a gummy.  I take VitaFusion and haven’t had any problems.  I even take them in the morning before breakfast.

@canarydiamond:  I would think so. Pregnant/TTC women are supposed to get 800 mg ( i think it’s mg ) or double what non pregnant/ttc women would get in a multivitamin. I think as long as you’re getting that it would take care of the biggest concern.

Unrelated – is it hilarious that while I’m typing to you I’m listening to Les Mis, “Do you hear the people sing?” and thinking of nothing but barricades? Lol. I crack myself up.
