Can anyone suggest any small prenatal vitamin tablets please?
I really struggle to take large pills, and last time around I wasted tons of money on different brands of vitamins only to find when I opened the packet that they were HUGE gurt big horse suppositories pills. I ended up not taking any (apart from Folic), my MW said it was fine, but this time around I'd prefer to take them.
We're not TTC yet but plan to starting earnest in a few months, I've just come off horrid Nexplanon and my ADs, and am still bfing 2yo DS once a day - I reckon I probably need a couple of months of multivitamins to build my stores back up.
Holland & Barrett do big bottles of teeny tiny folic acid 400mg, so I'll be fine for that, but would love any suggestions of smaller prenatal vitamin pills please!
There is now a bottle of water with vitamins and recommended amount of folic acid in it so no pill needed. I think it is called Water Baby but I don't know where you can buy it just heard some friends talking about it.
Not to my knowledge. I ended up just taking the small folic acid tablets and eating a balanced diet. I just couldn't swallow the huge ones - they all seemed to stimulate my gag reflex and made my morning sickness worse. For whilst you're ttc you could just take a regular smaller multivitamin with a small folic acid tablet, then once pg do what I did. If you eat healthily, there's really no need for one of those massive multivitamin pills especially for pregnancy - it's a moneymaker. Folic acid is the important one.
