prenatal vitamins

I'm 23 weeks pregnant. And I find it very hard to remember my vitamins. When I got them the doctor told me to take them on a full tummy or I'd be sorry. Problem is I still have morning sickness bad. I feel horrible like I'm neglecting the baby. But the doctor says he is healthy. Any advice?

I found the gummy vitamins so much easier to take. I remember to take mine by scheduling by the time my favorite TV show come on TV every night.

For some reason its been Sooo hard for me to remember to take my prenatals this second time around. Probably because in the beginning they made me feel horrible! I've gotten into a habit of taking them before I go to sleep. That way I've already eaten and once I'm comfortable and sleep, I'm too out of it to notice any side affects.

On part of this app, theres a reminder to take your pills. I would always forget to take mine too in the beginning but brought a bottle for my desk drawer & have a bottle in my purse. That way I always have them near me when i remember.

I always take my after dinner so I leave the bottle in the kitchen by the sink so I see it as I put my dishes away.

I have round, vitamin capsule that separates my pills by day that I carry around with me, and in that contains my allergy pills. I was notorious for forgetting to take my prenatals so I started taking them with my other vitamins that I take, particularly the allergy pills. Cuz I know that if I didn't take those I'd be even more congested and miserable than I am just from pregnancy, so it was a good way to remind myself to get my prenatals in too. We all do it, it's alright :)

My prenatal vitamins used to make me nauseous so I take them right before bed. The bottle is on my dresser right next to some water, so its a reminder. Before that, I would forget so I set my phone alarm to go off the same time everyday. Any little way helps.
