I have 4 kids I could not take the prenatals because they also made me sick I had 4 healthy babies none under 7lbs. If you are worried try taking just an over the counter multi vitamins 90% of women in the world have no access to prenatal vitamins. You have taken them for the first three months which are the most important. Women in North America and Western Europe who eat a good diet really have no need of them, it is the Third World with poor diets who really need them.

Is it too late to take multi vitamins during your last few months of pregnancy?

No, it is never too late! If your Dr. hasn't recommended a prenatal vitamin- or you haven't seen a Dr. its not too late to give your baby some extra vitamin help. However, it is best to take vitamins from the time you find out (even before you conceive if possible). Your Dr. should recommend prenatal vitamins, and if he/she doesn't or you don't have a Dr. for whatever circumstance - I would personally recommend Stuart prenatal vitamins that you can pick up at Walgreens, CVS or other stores. I took them at the end of my pregnancy with my son, my mom took them will all five of her pregnancies and we all turned out happy and healthy. I have only good things to say about these vitamins and it's never too late, or early for that matter for prenatal vitamins.

Continue taking it... If you weren't regular before as far as going to the bathroom, it's a good thing you're going regular now. I was on it for 3 months, got pregnant, earlier this year on April 24th 2007, done a pregnancy test May 18th 2007 had her on Sept 14th 2007 She died cause I had her at 5 1/2 months due to INCOMPETENT CERVIX, she was 414gms, just too little to receive any breathing tube, they couldn't save her. Since you're on the Metformin now, this can help you faster, it did for me. Up the dosages each week. Any over the counter Prenatal vitamins or doctor's prescribed. Every women is different, but this worked for me. Ex: week 1: Metformin 500mg w/ Prenatal vitamins week 2: Metformin 1000mg w/ Prenatal vitamins week 3: Metformin 1500mg w/ Prenatal vitamins week 4: Metformin 2000mg w/ Prenatal vitamins Stay blessed!

I am planning to start my family by this year end by when should i start taking prenatal vitamins and which one should i take?

Start taking your prenatal vitamins now. A friend of mine said her doctor had her start taking extrafolic acid 6 months before she conceived. I read that taking prenatal vitamins early can aid in fertility. I know that the benefits of folic acid start at conception. Most women start taking prenatal vitamins around the 3 month of pregnancy, by then the benefit of folic acid have lessened. The nutrients are extremely important during pregnancy and beyond, unfortunately most vitamins we take are not even digested and absorbed by the body. I took Chews4health during my last pregnancy. I have 4 children and took several different types of prenatal vitamins, most made my stomach upset. During my last pregnancy I started taking chews 4 health and it was the most enjoyable pregnancy off all. I was still smiling on delivery day. The best part is Chews offer almost complete absorption My little one now 9 months old is very smart, I believe it is due to the good quality nutrition I was able to give her and continue to give her through nursing.

What happens if you take too many prenatal vitamins?

The question is too vague to answer. Some vitamins are toxic in high doses, others aren't, but it depends very much on what specifically is in the vitamins and precisely how many "too many" refers to. The answer is going to be different if you took two than if you took four hundred, and whether it was a one-time thing or you ate them like candy for the entire nine months. Birth defects, or even the death of both mother and child, are medically POSSIBLE from overdosing on vitamins.
