I have to make a mom confession…(and you get a chance for a $50 gift certificate)
Prenatal vitamins and I didn’t get along very well. I tried to be real good. I tried to be a responsible, pregnant mother. I tried. I did.
But, y’all, I was so nauseous all the time, and those things were so big and sometimes I skipped.
There…it’s out in the open. I didn’t take my vitamins every day.
And now my oldest wears glasses, my middle one hates ketchup, and the little one has an adorably gap-toothed smile.
Now, I have no scientific evidence to link my lack of consistency with prenatal vitamins with their subsequent eyecare/dental needs and ketchup aversions, but it’s a possibility. 😉
It’s been a while since I’ve had dealings with a queasy stomach and prenatal vitamins. I’m sure they’ve improved in the last decade. And in case you’re in the market, here are tips about some of the best prenatal vitamins.
According to my friends at WebMD, prenatal vitamins are important, which we all know. But mama friends, don’t beat yourself up about not doing it perfectly all the time.
Drink your water. Eat healthier. Love your babies. End of story.
Oh, and laugh. It’s the best medicine!
