In brief: Switch vitamins

Different formulations of vitamins can cause nausea in some patients.
Most patients can find a vitamin that doesn't cause those symptoms. Try a few different ones.

In brief: Not supposed to but:

Prenatal vitamins are not supposed to do that but it is not unusual in early pregnancy to have a sensitive stomach; zinc ; b vits can esp.
Cause nausea. Taking them after a meal reduces stomach upset. Taking with ginger tea or homeopathic nux vomica 12c might also help. You might tolerate a liquid or powdered prenatal such as premama better. Good luck!

In brief: It's the pregnancy

It's the pregnancy and not the prenatal vitamin.
Take the pill after you have had something to eat and not on an empty stomach.
