Hey guys,
my childs mother is 7.5 months pregnant and does not take her vitamins (prenatal). Are these vitamins really necessary? What can happen if this suppliment hasn't been taken for this long? We don't live togather and it's really hard for me to monitor them going down the hatch. I feel she is not being very responsible through this whole thing. She waits for me to do everything. I need help, advice, encouragement, whatever you can give. Thanks guys!!! You've been great!

Itsz always a good idea to take your prenatal vitamins.

But if she is eating healthy and getting enough iron and stuffs, you shouldnt need to worry unless the doctor has said somehting.

Some women get sick from prenatal vitamins and can't take them. As long as she takes care of herself, you should not worry.

I am 7 months pregnant and I haven't taken any prenatal vitamins... they made me dizzy to the point of passing out. I tried taking them with food and it was still the same. I talked to my doctor and I eat healthy and excersize and he said I will be fine without them.
