For the past three weeks I have had overwhelming feelings of queasiness and have been a little sick some mornings too.
Then my Sister Not Yet A Yummy Mummy told me about Water Baby, a product she trialled and continued to use whilst suffering from hyperemesis in her pregnancy, I contacted the Company and luckily for me they offered to send me a weeks to supply to try for myself..
Water Baby looks like a bottle of flavoured water you would find in any Supermarket but its actually formulated for use during preconception , pregnancy and breast feeding.
Each bottle contains the recommended daily allowance of folic acid (400mcg) and a range of other vitamins including Calcium and Zinc .
It has a lovely citrus taste. Much more pleasant than swallowing a tablet and you can sip it throughout the day if that is all you can manage. It tastes like a treat rather than the chore taking your folic acid and other vitamins can be.
My supply arrived on a day when I woke up with a terrible migraine. I vomited first thing and was unable to swallow my vitamin tablet and despite knowing I needed to drink..I couldn't manage much more than a mouthful at a time. Once these arrived I couldn't wait to try them. I found I was able to tolerate a few sips at a time and before I knew it the bottle had gone and I was feeling a little better.
Over the past few days I have looked forward to my bottle a day. I really like this product and will definitely be buying more!
