try taking them right before you go to bed. if not try switching to gummies. they taste fairly good....and they havent made me sick. i know everyones different. but i take the speing valley gummies with dha and folic acid and they taste like fruit..i get them from walmart.

My prenatals made me sick and I only took them at night and I was all day sick I went and bought the flinstone vitamns and those are what I took. I found the only thing I have a problem with now is headaches

With my first pregnancy when i took my prenatal vitamin in the morning I would be sick all day, and I would vomit and just want to sleep cause I was real sick...then I switched to taking them at night after I have eaten all day and everything...it was much better, i didn't get sick anymore.  Now I'm pregnant with my 2nd child and I just take them at night.

Try eating crackers or a banana when you take them . this is my first pregnancy and when I first started taking them my stomach couldn't handle them at all . you'll get use to them eventually though its just something new to your stomach . if they do keep making you sick though , then I'd recommend switching to the gummies
