Thanks for all the welcomes!! The list really is getting long! I have a question, what in the prenatal vitamins tend to make women sick? I ask because after I was finished with the trial pack my doctor gave me at about 5 weeks I went straight to the Flintstones vitamins which were recommended by my doctor now. The Flintstones vitamins aren't making me sick, but I'm starting to have a problem taking them, does anyone know if the Flintstones gummies are the same and ok to take?

I ordered this one... http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=2128727

Hated it. Used it two nights and gave up. A little irritated at myself for ordering it.

Now I sleep with a full body pillow on both sides (I roll from side to side) and I've got a micro-bead pillow (you know, the squishy kind?) that I stick under my tummy until I'm comfy.

It's worked best for me... but I know a lot of people on here swear by the pillow I linked to.

Still waiting to see if we got the house. The realtor called this morning and said they accepted our offer but we have to pass the credit approval and home owners association application. I WANT to know.

Congratulations!!! Let us know!
I know how nerve-wracked DH and I were while we waited for the call back!!
I work for the bank our mortgage is through, so I totally cheated and did all that credit/application stuff when I had free time.

Crossing my fingers for you, Skylarr!

Kristen- im not sure whats in them that does that. I tried googling. This person says she heard it was the iron in them that makes you sick- and also talks about switching to a gummy vitamin. Hope that helps!

Thanks Maggie that website really did help. I may just have to go get those gummies. I figure if vitamins are what I need to take for the next 7 months at least I can have fun with them.

Am I the only one that didn't take prenatals? Or isn't taking prenatals, I should say?

My insurance doesn't cover them so...

I did not take them with either pregnancy. I tried but was off within a couple of weeks.

Melissa, good luck with your house offer!

Good to know. I took the samples they gave me.. but after that.. Dr. said they were waaay too expensive to buy out of pocket and didn't give me a Rx.

I did buy some from WalMart but I've not been too good at taking them either. Those Woman's Once A Day Prenatals. I think there are still some in the bottle actually.
And I've taken the PrimaCare Samples my Dr. gave me.. and also the DHA Expecta or whatever from Enfamil? Had some samples of those.

Nothing steady, though. I sorta feel guilty but too late now. I ate a lot of salad.

Mm.. salad.. dinner time!

I got my pre-natals at my grocery store for like 15 bucks. But they made me really, really sick so I stopped taking them. I just take the Flintstones chewables now.


Okay this may sound like a really weird question but...have any of you experienced any pain or discomfort in your groin? The last week or so I have been feeling some really uncomfortable tightening there...not in my abdomen but in my actual youknowwhat. It's almost like a muscle spasm. I looked it up online and then I asked my dad (he's a P.A.) and they both said the same thing...that it's caused by your ligaments stretching and moving to accommodate the baby. I just thought it was really weird and earlier it actually hurt. But my dad said not to be worried about it and to just take a tylenol. Pain in your va jay jay : yet another wonderful side effect of pregnancy

I've been having horrible pains the last few days. Pinching and tightening, and tons of pressure. I think mine is due to the baby moving closer into position. Last week it was my hips-I felt like I was being split in two (like the wishbone on a turkey!).

Debbie Downer checking in (or so atleast i feel that way with all the gallbladder issues ive talked about). I did mention this before. I felt like I had pushing down pain up in there. Its like not directly in the va jay jay, but its like need to put my hand up in there and touch my cervix or whatever it is that is causing the discomfort. Not sure if thats the same thing or not I havent had it in a few weeks though.

You need to put your hand up there Mine's not THAT bad

It's so hard to describe...it's like pain in the inner va jay jay and it sort of radiates outward. Okay, that probably makes no sense. Ack, I don't know. I just want it to go away...it's super uncomfortable!

Yikes! I have felt the pinching tightening etc but feeling like you're the wishbone on a turkey...that's no fun!

I have hip pain but I think it's because I am a total stomach sleeper and going from that to only being able to sleep on my side has been hard. It puts so much pressure on my hips and I am constantly having to move from side to side because it starts hurting so much. Even with the pillows it doesn't help much. Plus, I read that our hips spread to make room for baby...what's with EVERYTHING moving around in there? Not cool

Yes, I have had the same problem. Not real fun. I am also getting the pain on my right side. I find if I lay down and drink some water it helps.

I guess I have been lucky the my pre-natals don't give me a problem. They are expensive, $40 with insurance. My first trimester they would make me feel yucky so I would take them at night with crackers. That did help.
