Did anyone else feel sick after taking prenatal vitamins?

I started taking prenatal vitamins (the gummies) the day I found out I was pregnant. But recently, it seems that they're making me nauseous. As soon as I stopped taking them, I felt better. Has this happened to anyone else? Do you have to continue taking them if you get sick, or is there something else you can take in place of them?
Thanks!

Sometimes taking them at night can be easier. I found that I have the least trouble with the gummies though.

There are so many different kinds and some taste awful. I take nature made and they don't bother me so much.

I took Nature Made with my first pregnancy. I'm taking the Walgreen's brand of Nature Made now with my second pregnancy, but I can't seem to stomach them.

Yes. I couldn't take them. I stick to one a day women's vitamins.

Yes, it's the worst feeling. My first pregnancy OB suggested to take them at night before going to bed. So u am sticking to the same routine this time as well

i'm on my 3rd pregnancy and for the first 2 I could not take those without gagging/puking.. I had to take them at night chasing them with LOTS of water...  This time I just take them at night cuz I know now... good luck!

I had to stop because of getting sick but will try again. Sometimes I think my body had enough nutrients and it just didnt want any more at that time lol I know silly but always try again!
