I’m a mom of three so I am no stranger to prenatal vitamins. I remember when I was pregnant with my first child, I would gag whenever I would take my prenatal vitamins because of their large size. In the beginning, I decided on my own to take children’s chew-able vitamins instead. But after a few months and a few blood tests later, my doctor could see from the results that I was becoming anemic.
Needless to say, I was back on those giant horse pills in no time. It took awhile to get used to it but it wasn’t too bad. I wanted to be in optimal health so it meant getting used to taking those giant pills. Plus, I felt so much better afterwards. I had more energy and was super glad that future blood tests came back showing I was no longer anemic.
Allow me to be honest here…… Now this may sound odd to all of you but sometimes I buy prenatal vitamins!
I know it sounds crazy, uh?
Well there’s a good reason for that!
Saving money, of course!
I can’t help it but I love to save money. I mean, who doesn’t? Especially when I see a top selection of prenatal vitamins at an amazing deal! Yes they carry “regular” vitamins for women that are not pregnant but honestly, the prenatal vitamins that I get are pretty darn good.
And the best part about the vitamins that I buy: they aren’t so huge. They’re a decent size and it does its job. A win-win situation if you ask me. Although the factory was shut down years ago, this mama still needs to feel energized and healthy. So whatever I need to make that happen, I will do!
