I have a problem. I can barely swallow pills normally, it took me until my teens to learn to do it. When I'm nauseated from pregnancy, there is no better way to get me retching than to try to swallow one of those horse pills. It just does not work. When I was pregnant with my son, I took probably 12 the whole pregnancy. He's perfect, but I want to make it easier for me next pregnancy.
I've tried encasing them in jello to help them slide down easier. They swell up and it's disgusting.
I've crushed them and mixed them with honey. Gross!
I've tried and tried to swallow them and drunk cup after cup of juice, only to cough the stupid thing back up and have to go throw up because I put too much liquid in my belly.
When I tried to get advice about how necessary these pills are from the pharmacist, she just looked at me as if I wanted to go binge drinking.
Somebody tell me - are there such a thing as chewable prenatal vitamins? Or smaller ones? Names, brands, anything like that would be much appreciated. Thanks!
