Hi there. I've been having a "whopper" of a prenatal problem. First I was on a regular nature made before I found out I was preg. Then I went on the GNC gluten-free prenatals. Made me sick to my stomach all day. Now I have got a perscription from my GI dr. called penatal plus by teva. Has anyone heard of this one? I'm hoping it works. I think I am feeling better, but I'm at the point where I just want to go back on my regular nature mades. I'm 9 weeks along, and this new rx is making me constipated. It's always something.

I was happy the other day though. I local super market has an AWESOME gluten-free section and I got a lot of great new foods!!! All ready made mac n cheese, blueberry muffins, brownies, soups. I can't wait to eat them all!!! But for some reason, I'm really missing oatmeal!!! I've heard that that is questionable. Has anyone tried it?

Thanks a bunch!

congrats to you! I am 10 weeks along and have been super sick also. I am taking Celgan (I think) I am at work right now but I will check and see when I get home. It doesn't make me sick at all. I know that because I took it for along time before getting pg ;) I will look it up and let you know. My GI dr. told me not to eat out at all the whole 9 months and he told me to get my blood tested every month to check my calcium and iron, and other vitimin levels. Do you think he is going overboard or is that a good thing? I can't tell.

good luck I hope you feel better soon.

Hi,

I have an almost 5 yr. old, almost 3 yr. old, and a 5 mo. old baby. My 5 mo. old was the first baby I had while knowing I was a celiac and while I was on a gluten-free diet. I took Stuart Natal prescription vitamins - they are gluten-free. While I did not have any morning sickness throughout any of my pregnancies, I always got extremely nauseous if I took my prenatals without food. Even if I took my vitamin 2 min. before the food I would get sick. I had to take it WHILE I was eating. Also, I've heard some people take it at night with a little bit of food, right before bed. That way they'll sleep through it if it makes them sick. I still take Nature Made prenatals since I am breastfeeding and I still get sick if I don't take them with food.

Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy.

Rachel

Prenatal vitamins (any vitamins really) can make you sick and/or nauseus during pregnancy. Try another brand, try it with food like s.o. else suggested, or maybe just stop them for a few weeks and try again. They may not bother you once you're out of the first trimester.

Best wishes,

Merika

I know I'm coming in to this discussion late but I wanted to recommend Good Earth vitamins as well as remind women that you don't always have to take a prenatal - regular vitamins plus folic acid are often enough. I actually process Iron incredibly well and have landed in the ER 3 times with Iron overdoses while taking traditional prenatals. I am 18 weeks pregnant now and have been taken Good Earth iron-free vitamins plus folic acid every day with no side effects. I take them in the evening with supper and have had no nausea. Good luck!
