Prenatal vitamins are the enemy

So last night I got the worst stomachache ever. I have been getting them occasionally since I have been pregnant. Not sure Stomachache is really correct as the actual problem is just being insanely clogged up. I know, I know, TMI. It is these stupid prenatal vitamins. They are killing me. Do babies really need them? Women have been having babies for centuries without them and their babies have turned out fine. Can't I just eat a lot of fruit and veggies? What is in that little pink pill that is so fabulous for the growing embryo inside of me? Anyways, back to the point. So I was up a little later then usual because I thought I was going to die. But then I started feeling a bit better and was able to go to sleep around 10:30. Elliot came to bed at 2:00 (he is enjoying his month off of school) and lovingly brought me a glass of water since he knows I always wake up in the middle of the night parched. I woke up to drink some and then of course had to use the bathroom and by the time I was done with all of that (approx. 2 1/2 minutes) I was wide awake. Like middle of the afternoon awake. Very unlike me. I can sleep anywhere anytime and never have trouble going back to sleep after waking up for a minute. So I laid back down to try to force myself to go to sleep (by this time Elliot was already asleep next to me). I laid there until almost 3:00 and still wasn't the slightest bit tired. I tried to wake up Elliot to tell him I couldn't sleep (it makes sense to me that if I can't sleep, anyone else sharing a bed with me shouldn't be sleeping either) but he wouldn't budge. What to do in a situation like this? I turned to Tila Tequila of course. I turned on the tv and that is what happened to be on so I watched that for about 7 minutes until I was so disturbed by it I had to change the channel. Who is watching that? And why is popular enough to have a second season?? I channel surfed through a few other explicit infomercials (do you know what people are trying to sell us at 3:00 in the morning?? Insane) and realized I was probably better off befriending the internet. So I blog surfed until 4:15. IN. THE. MORNING. Unbelievable. For those that know me well, you know I cannot stay up past, oh, 8:00 without starting to yawn and dreaming of my bed. I couldn't believe I was still up. Finally around then I was starting to get tired again so laid back down and dreamed about the egg mcmuffin I was going to let myself have to make up for my terrible night(I could eat about 6 of those a day since I've been pregnant. This baby is already a fast food junkie). I finally fell back asleep only to wake up at 5:00 with a charley horse!! What did I do to deserve all this? And then at 5:07 my alarm went off and I wanted to shoot myself. And Elliot. I didn't really have any justification for being mad at Elliot but seeing him sleeping peacefully enraged me just a little. Anyways, I am now at work and oddly enough, I feel fine. Last night apparently didn't effect me at all. Yet. Maybe this baby didn't want me sleeping anymore? I don't know but thank goodness cause it is not good to be a beast at work when you work in customer service. So I'm not sure why I felt it necessary to post this massive post but for props to those of you who made it to the end!

try different vitamins. i got a million different samples from the OB, but i found the the generic target brand are the best for me. As for the sleep issues, i am right there with you. Sometimes with my other pregnanies i would get in a warm bath in the middle of the night just to relax my body enough to be able to fall back asleep. good luck!

Jessica G said...

Wow...I'm sorry you had such a rough night. I'm with Alyson's suggestion. Try different vitamins. I'm sure there is one with something that won't upset your stomach.

Whitaker Family said...

That is really rough. I took a prenatal with a stool softener that worked really well, and taking them right before bed can sometimes help. Good luck.

Jennifer said...

Hi Traci, try Flinstone's vitamins with iron. Yes, the childrens vitamins. Just make sure they are the "complete, with iron" and take two of them. Prenatal pills make me soooo sick and I could never taken them. One of my cousins was the same and said this is what her doctor told her to do. So I asked my doctor and it was fine! Tell Elliott hello for us too!

Zach 'n' Jack said...

Isn't pregnancy the best? The only problems with my vitamins was them making me more nauseated; I switched to taking them at night and that helped a ton, but that doesn't really help you! Sleeping issues are the WORST - I feel for you!

Chad & Heather said...

Oh friend..I can so relate to your story! What a long night you had though seriously! I am glad you were able to function the next day at work. Lots of good suggestions on the vitamins...I took the official pre natal's through about first trimester and the I stopped cause I hated them! Now I take just a multi vitamin. You know your body, try something new if needed:) GOod luck!

Christa said...

This is the best post...you're posting so much, it's like a Christmas Miracle.
I could stay up late when I was pregnant, sometimes till 3am and I wouldn't even relaize. I really can't picture you up all that time. Good luck with the vitamins, with Elle I think I only did a couple times a week, and she's totally a genius.

Will & Natalie Giddens said...

Hi Tracy!
I'm totally w/your friend, Heather. Just stop taking them. You know your body best and like you said, just try to get extra iron in your foods.

I was so crappy at remembering to take my pre-natals that it took me the whole pregnancy to get through one bottle (roughly 90 pills).

Also, I have a friend who's a doula (she's in her 50s) and she's convinced that pre-natal vitamins are the reason why women have such big babies these days, hence, more C-sections. For what it's worth... :-)

The GLASMANNagerie said...

My last pregnancy, I think I had journal entries that always started in the middle of the night with, "Well, I'm not sleeping again!" Try drinking lots of water and snacking on things like nuts or granola bars. I like the Kudo's ones with lots of chocolate. Good luck!
