The third trimester of my pregnancy was rough. Moreso than I remember with my previous pregnancies. I started a new job at 34 weeks pregnant, and although I worked from home, I still had to maintain with a very active four-year-old all day. Couple that with the already early mornings and late nights that I had with the other kids, I was just exhausted.
One thing this pregnancy made me realized (especially since I was considered to be in the Advanced Maternal Age category), was that I needed to do more when it comes to making sure that I remain in tip-top shape. Because of that, I started using supplements during my third trimester. This also led me to add supplements to my children’s diets as well, just to give them an extra boost!
The decision to supplement was one that I made sure that thoroughly researched as much as possible. I wanted something that was suitable for pregnancy so that it met my own needs (as well as for the postpartum period), along with something that worked for my children’s health needs as well.
