Vitamins Question

Hello everyone.. I was just wondering, I'm 19 weeks and since I first found out I was pregnant, which was at about 4 weeks, I've taken my prenatal vitamins everyday...well, lately for some reason, I've been forgetting to take them and have only taken them every other day for the past week...is this okay? Am I harming my baby? I am going to try to start to remember better but I just want to make sure that I'm not hurting my baby...thanks

Well, you're not hurting the baby, but maybe not helping as much as you could. Supplements just create a satefy net but the baby will deplete nutrients from your body if need be. One week is not enough to create any problems, but to be on the safe side try to make a habit of it

I only took prenatals for about two months, right in the beginning. I quit taking them because they made me sicker than a dog. My doctor told me that it was okay to not take them anymore. Your baby is going to get all of the nutrients from you so long as you are eating healthy and taking care of yourself.

I quit my prenatals around wk 9 as they made me so sick. I went to Flinstone Vitamins instead and my doc said that was fine.

Yeah, I switched to Flintstones, too.....should you be taking 2 of them? i have taking like 1 1/2 because even they made me feel a little ill. lol...
