    Default Multivitamins and feeling bloated

    Anyone else feel like the multivitamins are working against the body to get rid of the waste product and getting "packed up"???

    I couldn't imagine not being able to give my baby the best start and that includes daily multi's but my digestive system is suffering terribly....

    Any suggestions?

    What multi's are you using? I used Blackmores pregnancy and breastfeeding vitamins during most of my pregnancy and 14 months after until he weaned from the breast. I personally haven't had a problem with it.
    Could the "bloatedness" be related to normal pregnancy symptoms?

    Yes I posted this last wk!!! I am on elevit, cranberry and calcium & magnesium and have been sooo "clogged up", gassy and bloated... Going to the toilet for number twos is ahem far from pleasant and they are really dark- ewww!!!
    I think it's the iron in elevit as it has 60mg as opposed to my old multi which had 1.9 mgs!!!

    I have a similar thing happening with mine, but don't want to switch from elevit .

    On bad days I have some lemonade (make sure it's really bubbly though otherwise it will just add to the problem ). I found fruit juice/dried fruit really helped too, as well as having a high fibre brekkie . For emergencies I have fibre supplements, but usually like to rely on actual fruit and high fibre food rather then anything else.
