No, you'll be fine.

Don't panic. Just take one today. I haven't taken a single vitamin since I was 9 weeks because I couldn't keep them down. Am now nearly 33 weeks and baby is still growing well

No need for panic. Don't take a double dose, just the normal daily dose. Maybe you could set a reminder on your phone so you don't forget again?

Ah ladies you are the best, thank you for the quick response and calming my nerves. And yes a reminder on the phone's a brilliant idea smile

It will make zero difference, it's not medication for a serious illness and most of the vitamins are completely unnecessary anyway. A folic acid (preconception) and vit D also (once pregnant) is all that's recommended. And many many people don't even manage to take either let alone miss one day.

I say all that in the hope that you don't get too fixated on the perfection of doing everything right because that way madness lies.

have an extra spoon of veg with your dinner tonight, a bit more fruit and stop worrying. you and your baby are fine.

and it is a lovely sunny day today, get outside, roll up your sleeves if you can to expose a bit more skin and soak up the free vitamin d.
