Have you tried the gummy prenatals? They worked for me.

Honestly call me a bad mom but I don't take prenatal and haven't with any if my pregnancies. My Dr. Knows and said it is fine if you eat right in the end they are for you since the baby takes all of you nutrients. But you can take the gummy kids flinstones ones I took those for a little bit

I took prenatal vitamins for the first few months, but I hate taking pills so I stopped.. my baby is just as healthy maybe even more healthy... the pills help if you don't have a balanced diet to get all the nutrients and iron and blah blah.. but if you implement that in your diet every day along with exercise you should be fine.. I still have about 2 full boxes of pre natal vitamins I didn't take..

It's my first pregnancy as well... Just stay healthy and drink a lot of water...

Try the vita fusion gummies they are great. And for the wives tales they are mainly just for fun the one I did said boy and I'm having a girl

I only took mine for about a month. I've tryed all different ones and they've all made me sick. My doctor knows I don't take them because I have nausea problems even without them. She said IF I feel like I can take them, then go ahead and try. But my son is measuring, looking and feeling pretty darn healthy. Call me a bad mom all you want, but I think it's better I actually hold something down so he can have something to eat other than throw everything up.
And at 16 weeks I found out I was having a boy. Had it confirmed at 20 weeks. He was still a he. :)
