Ugh, I can’t take vitamins in the morning. I take Costco prenatals and I take them at night between dinner and bed, and I don’t have any problems with it (and in the past, whenever I’ve tried to take morning vitamins, it’s made me throw up).

Is it the iron or the calcium pill that is giving you problems?  The ones I take are a gummy so there is no iron in them (gummies appeal to children and iron is a leading cause of child poisoning).  They don’t give me any problems.  I’ll be either adding an iron supplement or switching to a brand that has iron.  You might have an issue with the iron.

I also have to take mine right before bed.  I’ve tried a few different kinds and they all made me sick.

I’ve been taking the New Chapter Organics Perfect Prenatal for about a year now (finally 6 weeks pregnant!) and its the BEST.  A little pricey, but so worth it.  You can take it on an empty stomach with a swig of coffee and I’ve never felt even the slightest nausea.

I hav been really sensitive to almost every brand of prenatals. While TTC I ended up just taking a children’s vitamn and then a seperate folic acid supplement.

I’m with JenniB. I take New Chapter Perfect Prenatal, they are awesome vitamins! With Amazon “subscribe & save”, it’s about $15 a month.

I am taking BellyBar Chewables.. They don’t taste the best (kinda like tums) but I don’t get any sickness from them.

I love my Shaklee Vitalizer strips, but they are pricey and have made me nauseated…the big trick that helps me is freezing them.

Take them at night before bed and you’ll sleep through most of the nausea.  That’s how I have to take my BCPs.

My OB’s nurse had me switch to a crewable. They don’t have iron and some of the other heavy minerals and vitamins that make so many women hate prenatals and she said if my blood work showed I needed iron, I could jsut take a separate iron pill.

I’m taking VitaFusin PreNatal DHA & Floic Acid gummy vitamins. They taste pretty decent, and I take one with breakfast, one with dinner.

@MrsSawyer:  My doctor recommended gummy prenatal vitamins when I said the pill form was upsetting my stomach.  The only downside is that they do not include iron, so I ended up slightly anemic and needed to take an additional supplement.  I take the iron in the morning and my prenatals at night.
