Trial and error.: Most of my patients mention that the walgreen's prenatal vitamins cause less nausea - however this is all on a trial-and-error basis for each individual. I think that the centrum specialist prenatal vitamins are a very good product.

I'm almost 4 weeks pregnant. Extremely tired. I take about 2-5 hour naps a day. Is this normal? Is there anything i can take besides prenatal vitamins

Yes: Everyone has different feelings and needs when they are pregnant. It is very common in the first trimester to be very tired and require more sleep. There is not anything to take for this. Just try to get as much sleep as possible at night and indulge in naps if your schedule allows it. Energy levels will increase back to normal as the pregnancy progresses into the second trimester. ...Read more

My doctor prescribed me iron supplements twice a day & prenatal vitamins once a day. Can I take all  3 of them together or I should give sum hours gap?

It depends.: Prenatal vitamins contain iron as well usually. You may take them all together, but you may have less stomach upset if they are taken separately with food. Iron absorption is increased with vitamin C and decreased by minerals, tea, coffee, and cocoa. ...Read more
