    vit d and iron if low

    Im with you @Kazza78!

    Prenatal vitamins didn't agree with me. I figured I would add foods into my diet instead, in my mums day they didn't take anything and I'm okay

    I did take Folic Acid until Week 11 though but since then I'm a free agent.

    I've been thinking for the last week or so that elevit has been what has been contributing to my headaches and nausea. I haven't taken one today and I don't feel sick for a change. It also makes me constipated. I think I might take one every now and then to use the box but that will be it.

    I had issues with Elevit when I was pregnant with DD and my GP said take half a tablet instead of a whole one a day so they wouldn't go to waste. I didn't have any issues doing that and I didn't buy anymore Elevit after that. She recommended the blackmore's ones. I ended up on ferrograd c so didn't take any more pregnancy vitamins.

    Eta: i take blackmores now

    Exactly this for me too

    ETA: I always take my PNV when I go to bed at night as taking them in the morning always exacerbated my MS, especially on an empty stomach!

    I must be the only woman on the planet that hasn't been affected by Elevit.

    I took it all the way through my first pregnancy and now again with my second. I refuse to miss any of it. Haven't had nausea, headaches or constipation with it at all.
