When I found out I was pregnant with my second baby, it was an accident. We had just had our daughters first birthday party, and somebody showed up who had been sick and puking the day before, along with her kids, and never told us. About 20 people ended up sick – me included 🙁 It only lasted a few days or so, but it was hard to take care of my little peanut. Well……12 days later, I was still sick to my stomach. I decided it was time to call the doctor, but I knew they would ask if I was pregnant so I thought I would take a pregnancy test so I could tell them I wasn’t. You see, I had just taken a test 3 weeks earlier and it was negative. You can imagine my surprise at 11 at night when it shows positive…..Ummm what??? And yay!!!
Unfortunately, the sickness didn’t go away. I was trying to take my prenatal vitamins, for the baby and because I was still breastfeeding my little girl. It wasn’t working well for me, and there were many days I had to just skip it since the very thought of taking it made me throw up. What was I suppose to do? I don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables so I definitely need my vitamins.
Fast forward to the end of my pregnancy when I had the opportunity to review Prenatal Oxylent – a Multivitamin prenatal drink mix. Hmmmm. That might work for me. I wish I had known about it at the beginning of my pregnancy. Now, I’m not a big fan of drink mixes, I prefer water straight up, but if you have ever thrown up, you know a little flavor in your mouth is always welcome! Plus – extra bonus points if you can down a little extra water with your vitamin.
Prenatal Oxylent from Vitalah makes it easy and yummy to get your prenatal vitamin down. They are easy to digest, great tasting effervescent formulated for the needs of preconception, pregnancy and lactation. I have been taking my vitamins at night, but the last kind I tried was making me sick to my stomach – not good since I am already sick to my stomach! There were nights I completely forgot to take my vitamins, but couldn’t convince myself to take the pills during the day. With the Prenatal Oxylent, I was able to take it in the middle of the day – more bonus points since the middle of the day is when I really want a Mountain Dew. Plus, if I am out and about, I can simply toss a packet in the diaper bag and take it with me. It is so easy to use – just mix it into 6 – 8 ounces of water, stir and enjoy. It has a great cranberry raspberry flavor so it tastes like you are drinking a juice drink. There is no sugar added – naturally sweetened with stevia. Plus, because of the effervescence of it, the vitamin is absorbed faster than most prenatal vitamins because it doesn’t have to break down in your body.
Prenatal Oxylent is the official prenatal multivitamin of the American Pregnancy Association
