Thanks for posting your query.
The decreased bowel movements, loss of appetite, nausea, altered taste sensation are all related to hormonal changes in your body related to pregnancy.
Stopping the prenatal vitamin will not relieve your symptoms.
You need to do some lifestyle modifications which will help control your symptoms.
1.) Eat fiber XXXXXXX fresh fruits and XXXXXXX leafy vegetables and avoid foods which are not easily digestible and fatty foods
2.) Have six small meals instead of 3 large meals
3.) Drink plenty of fluids
4.) Go for regular Brisk walks for 30 to 40 minutes daily.
In case the symptoms are persistent then you might consult your gynecologist who after a detailed examination will prescribe you drugs for symptomatic improvement.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks for writing again.
To avoid the nausea you can get doxylamine prescribed from your gynecologist.
Prenatal vitamins are always preferable over the regular vitamins at your stage.
Hope my answer is helpful.
