Experiencing morning sickness and pregnancy nausea? Here are some remedies that can alleviate your morning sickness and help you feel better! The excitement from the positive pregnancy test is quickly overshadowed by the unsettling feeling in your stomach. Morning sickness is just a term for nausea during pregnancy, no matter what time of day it hits. Many women get sick in the morning, but some experience evening sickness, or even nausea throughout the day.
I could set a clock by when my nausea struck! Read on to see how to help relieve that unsettling stomach. Every person will experience morning sickness and relief from morning sickness at different times. For many people, morning sickness begins around 6 weeks and starts to get better when they hit the 12 week-mark.
2. get moving.
Some people experience Hyperemesis Gravidarum HGwhich is severe nausea and vomiting that can cause weight loss and dehydration. If you think you have HG talk with your doctor, as it can lead to complications in pregnancy. But, you will get through this.
You will stomach normal foods again without fear of them coming back up.
1. start the morning off on the right foot.
In the meantime, here are some morning sickness remedies that will hopefully help tame your tummy trouble! An empty stomach and low blood sugar can make your nausea worse first thing in the morning. Keep a stash of crackers or granola bars on your nightstand and nibble them down before starting your day.
Sucking on hard candies and lollipops can help calm nausea. I would suck on lemon drops every night when my nausea was really bad. Avoid taking your prenatal vitamins on an empty stomach.
Try taking it at night right before bed or with your dinner. If you still feel nauseated after taking your prenatal vitamin in the evening, talk with your doctor about switching to a different prenatal. Sometimes the iron in them can worsen nausea symptoms. Ginger is a popular nausea relief remedy and comes in many forms.
4 ways to make your mornings suck a little less
You can try sipping ginger ale or ginger tea, snacking on candied ginger and ginger cookies, or sucking on ginger candies and ginger drops for relief. Aim to eat every two to three hours. After constantly getting sick, I started carrying snacks with me in the car and in my purse. Easy-to-pack snacks include crackers, nuts, pretzels, bars, and fruit. Studies have shown that taking Vitamin B6 can help reduce nausea in pregnant women.
Taking 10 to 25 mg of Vitamin B6 three times a day could help alleviate morning sickness. You can also get Vitamin B6 from foods like chickpeas, chicken breast, potatoes, and bananas. This is an easy pregnancy hack that may help alleviate some of the nausea!
Certain smells can provoke nausea. Avoid strong smells like cigarette smoke not good for baby anywayperfumes, and certain foods.
The smell of poultry used to send me running to the toilet, so I let my husband take the cooking reigns while I was in my first trimester. Whenever I was home alone in that first trimester, morning sickness seemed to be at its peak. Whenever we had somewhere to go or something to do, I almost always got lost in the fun of the activity and forgot about my nausea. The bands pinpoint a pressure point that is known to help relieve nausea symptoms and use acupressure on it. Sucking on hard peppermints or chewing peppermint gum can be a remedy for morning sickness.
Grab a bag and pop one in when you feel nausea coming on!
Some women find relief from smelling peppermint oil through a diffuser. Just eat what you can. You know what your body can handle right now. I ate an entire loaf of french bread for dinner once when I was pregnant—it was all I could stomach that night!
For some woman, that might mean eating bland foods, and for others, it may mean fast food. Do what you gotta do!
