Getting Enough Calcium While Pregnant
At your first prenatal appointment when you are pregnant, your Dr. may choose to go over prenatal vitamins and how important they are. Mine gives me a bunch of samples and lets me choose which vitamins I like. Honestly, most of the time they are huge pills and with my gag reflex in full force, I’ll admit that there are days that I can’t get my vitamins down. That doesn’t make it any less important to get the nutrients that I need.  I am currently 15 weeks pregnant and know that my body is needing more right now to help develop and grow my baby.

One very important nutrient you need when baby is developing is calcium. Viactiv offers a Calcium chew that not only gives you all of your daily value of calcium for you and baby, it also tastes delicious. They are soft chews and come in flavors like caramel and chocolate. They taste more like a treat to me and easy to take since they are chewy. In just 2 chews, you not only get your daily dose of Calcium, but added vitamins D and K.

The recommended value of Calcium per day is 1000 mg, however many multi-vitamins don’t contain near enough calcium that you need. In fact, I looked at my prenatal multi-vitamin and it only includes 300mg of Calcium which is not near what I need. I may be drawing calcium from other sources, but I know there are days that I don’t get enough, so I’ve been adding Viactiv to my daily routine. Did you know that if your body isn’t getting enough Calcium while pregnant, the baby will take what he/she needs, leaving your body deficient? It’s smart to get enough so that your bones won’t pay for it later in life.


Viactiv isn’t just for pregnant women, but teens and menopausal woman as well. Any woman could benefit from more calcium in her diet, especially if she is part of the 68% that is deficient.



I still have 25 weeks left to go in my pregnancy, but I’m determined to do my part to take care of myself and grow a healthy baby as well!
