Pregnancy, it's an exciting time in our lives. For me, with my son, it was a new chapter to mine and my husband's lives as he was our first born. This time around, it's exciting because not only is it our second (and last) addition, but our son will have a little sibling.
While pregnancy is exciting, there's a lot of thought that has to go into your baby, and by that, I mean you have to keep up with your prenatal, so you know everything you can possibly do has been done. Prenatal vitamins ensure you, and your growing baby is receiving all the vitamins and minerals necessary. Normally, your OBGYN would prescribe you some, but if it's going to be awhile before you get to see one, it's best you go ahead and purchase some yourself.
The always welcoming Fairhaven Health has everything you need from trying to conceive, pregnancy, birth, and things to help with breastfeeding. While awaiting my first appointment (they get in no rush, so it was right at 12 weeks before I got in), I had to have some prenatal vitamins to get me by. In exchange for a review, they sent me a bottle of Peapod Prenatal, and two bottles of Peapod Cal-Mag (one bottle of prenatal is two month supply, but Cal-Mag is one month supply).
What I absolutely loved: Neither of these had an awful aftertaste. They didn't dissolve quickly leaving a taste that was hard to swallow, which made it a lot easier on me. No nasty taste at all, which was surprising with the prenatal, as what the doctor prescribes is awful. Small, easy to swallow pill on the prenatal.
The Cal-Mag, as you can see is a larger pill. Larger pills gag me, but I've been a trooper and just knocked it out as easily as possible! The Cal-Mag is just that extra shot of calcium and magnesium, kind of as a reassurance, or if you have a deficiency in either, it can help with that as well. I have so enjoyed these, as even with severe morning sickness, I was able to get these down without gagging too much, making it easier to keep it down.
You can purchase the Peapod Prenatal for just $14.98 for a two month supply, and the Peapod Cal-Mag for $11.98 for a one month supply.
