I'm in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy and my morning sickness has subdued. At night i take prenatal vitamins an hour after eating & i always feel very nauseous & i end up vomiting. Why is this happening?

I'm in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy and my morning sickness has subdued. At night i take prenatal vitamins an hour after eating & i always feel very nauseous & i end up vomiting. Why is this happening?

Maybe iron.: Prenatal vitamins have more iron in them than regular vitamins which may be upsetting your stomach. You could taking the vitamin as half after breakfast and half after dinner to see if that helps. I'd also take it right after dinner (don't wait an hour). You could try a different brand (but they all have iron). Start with half tab twice a day with food and let me know if it helps -. ...Read more

Is it safe to bleach the ends of my hair in the 2nd trimester of pregnancy?

Probably: Doctors are hesitant to answer questions regarding pregnancy.....Malpractice laws as they are...However! knowing biology and the facts of hair growth, the ends of hair are not biologically active, so just coloring the ends (in my personal opinion) should not be biologically active in the circulation of your child.

Hello I'm in third trimester of pregnancy but I feel real less movement of my baby but in 2nd trimester I felt a lot movement ?

Fetal movement: At 28 weeks your baby is a nice sized fish in a nice sized pond. At 35 weeks your baby is a big fish in a small pond. The number of movements and activity of the baby does not really change. It is the perception by you causing the changes. Rather than all the punches and kicks you now feel more rolling type activity due to the baby's size in the confines of your uterus. ...Read more
