did anyone not take prenatals?

i saw my family doctor today, and he was quite surprised i wasn't taking prenatals. but i was so sick with throwing up until around now (11 weeks or so), that vitamins just came back up. instead, i had flintstone vitamins (with folate - but a small amount and not as much as regular prenatals), usually one a day for the first 2-3 weeks or so of my pregnancy. but i didn't eat much at all - threw up lots. some days just had soup.
and i didn't take prenatal vitamins before the pregnancy either.

i'm really worried now. my nuchal is next week. has anyone else not taken prenatals?
