Patient :Hi Dr, i'm a 23 year old female. I'm currently 3 months pregnant and a few days. Been taking prenatal supplements containing folic acid. Last week I went to see a nurse she gave me an injection also a pack of folic acid pills and a packet of Calcium Carbonate pills which I must take 2 , 3 times a day o_o meaning each day I consume 7 pills including 1 a day for prenatal pill. I just discovered that since I started taking the Calcium Carbonate pills i'm getting so sick and very nausea's... i'm afraid that I will have to stop taking them and only continue with Pregwise prenatal supplement which is one a day. Is there anyway that my baby will get affected if I dont consume those pills ?? Please help Dr
