    be careful with your sensitivity to stool softener. I had been taking it for about 3 weeks and was feeling nausea and general malaise. It turns out the day I stop taking it I begin to recover. If you read about the side effects of the stool softener you'll aesthetic those are potential side effects. The stool softener is so unnecessary for a whole 9 months. Don't take them!

    The vanilla scent of this vitamin is very pleasant. It tends to upset my stomach, so taking it with food is a must for me.

However, Nexa Select was the only prenatal vitamin that didn't make me quesy during my first trimester of pregnancy. After insurance AND Next Selects promotional prescription card, it still costs $60/month...for a vitamin???! I think that is a crazy amount of money for a vitamin. I used Nex ... Show Full Comment

    I started taking this vitamin after finding out about my pregnancy, and started experiencing severe nausea and fatigue, which I initially blamed on the morning sickness, however, one day I forgot to take it and felt great all day. So I decided to start taking it at night instead of in the morning, and the first time I did it, I threw up half an hour later. I stopped taking the pill and symptoms we ... Show Full Comment
