The Best Prenatal Vitamin for Morning Sickness


Before both of my pregnancies, I would start a prenatal vitamin as part of my every day routine. Proper nutrition before conceiving is vital to help sustain and grow a healthy baby. My first pregnancy, I bought Walmart brand prenatals. At $4 a bottle, in the bag! Your typical pop and swallow pill. This was all fine and dandy until the gaggies rolled in with morning sickness. I was popping them every morning. But as my morning sickness increased, my vitamin intake decreased. If I DID get them down, I felt sick. My ob-gyn suggested switching from intake to evening intake. This helped, but there were still days where that lumpy pill wasn't making it past my throat.

With my second pregnancy, I tried a bunch of different ones. I tried Isotonix from Market America. It's in powder form that you mix with 2 ounces of water in a shot glass and shoot it down. It tasted like grapefruit. BLAH. I hate grapefruit! Add in an incredibly picky palette and it was disastrous. And I wasn't even pregnant yet! I quickly switched back to the horse pills from Walmart because anything was better than a shot of grape fruit on an empty stomach.

After 6 (long) months of trying, we have a positive pregnancy test! YAY!!! And same as last time, it wasn't too far into my pregnancy that I couldn't stomach getting pills down. I mentioned this at my ob-gyn appointment and they sent me home with Select-ob+DHA. A chewable prenatal similar to Flintstones but...not as tasty. The DHA gel pill was separate and huge so those never went down. It was about 3 weeks later that the IRON kicked in. I was SO constipated I was dry heaving every time my bowel would try to move food along....not to mention I was already gaggy to begin with. Coupled with not drinking enough water, I was the trifecta for...kidney stones. And I had one. It was the largest size a preggo could pass without medical intervention. I labored on that stone for EIGHT MISERABLE LONG DAYS. Three ER visits, one overnight and a week and a half off of work because I was tanked on pain killers that conked me out. At any moment I could go from fine and functioning to ZZZZZZzzzzz. :( NOT. FUN. I threw away any vitamins I had left and steered clear of iron like it was the plague. It took me a good two weeks to finally get somewhat turned around. I settled on taking Flintstones (chewable, decent taste with the immune system boost orange box) because I couldn't find anything else. I was tired of buying vitamins and throwing them away. If I didn't take the Flintstones, I knew my daughter would. No waste.

After birth, I still took a prenatal. I went back to the swallow ones...those got old. Finally tried the gummy They were ok. Ok enough that I bought two bottles worth and I have since ran out. Enter PreMama.

PreMama is a natural powdered supplement formulated to support preconception through post natal nutritional needs. No honking horse pills, the drink mix solution contains high-quality, clinically-studdied and physician-approved ingredients. The powder packets are designed to blend seamlessly with liquids and soft foods. Just mix and enjoy!

Ya'll had me at "No honking horse pills". For reals. So, I put PreMama Fertility Reproductive Support Supplement in a shaker with 12 ounces of Gatorade...there was no powder at the bottom of the cup. Not chalky. No funky taste. Nothing. No need to re-shake or stir. The next day, I added it to my morning blended breakfast shake with banana, rice milk and peanut butter...again, I noticed no difference in taste or consistency. A glass of apple juice? If someone would have mixed the glass for me and handed it to me without telling me PreMama powder was in it, I would have been none the wiser. WHERE was the magical potion while pregnant?!

I absolutely love that the PreMama line thinks of a woman from pre-conception all the way through lactation. There's Fertility support, Prenatal Essentials, Prenatal Essentials + DHA, and Lactation. All with the same wonderful powder packets, just add to 12 ounces of non-carbonated beverage, stir and bottoms up! No gagging, no chalky after taste. Just non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegan/vegetarian friendly supplements. PreMama was really sucking up to the first trimester preggos by putting in an extra dose of B6 to help ease morning sickness. Yay! Bonus round!
