Managing Morning Sickness

Morning sickness is a common and detested complaint of moms-to-be everywhere. It can be very mild and fleeting or violent and long-lived. Every pregnancy is different, so even if you never had a day of morning sickness during an earlier pregnancy, you might be ill every morning during this one.

It's called morning sickness, although it can occur at any time of day or night. It's most often felt during a woman's first trimester, but it can persist for an entire pregnancy. Doctors still aren't entirely sure what causes morning sickness, but believe it's a combination of pregnancy hormones and low blood sugar.

You can relieve morning sickness in a number of ways. If you become nauseated by certain smells or tastes, try your best to avoid these foods when you're not feeling well. Know what foods your body can tolerate, and stick to those. Eat smaller meals with lots of water in between bites. Don't eat three huge meals each day, as this can cause your stomach to become bloated and upset.

Crackers or cookies can help settle your stomach if morning sickness attacks. Saltines are a popular staple of pregnant women everywhere, and can relieve nausea. Take a small bag of crackers or cookies with you, or keep some in your car in case morning sickness sneaks up. Dry toast is also a great morning sickness remedy.

Peppermint tea is a soothing way to calm your stomach and ease morning sickness. Sip tea during the day, or when you feel morning sickness coming on. Try to drink at least one cup in the morning when you wake up, and one before you go to sleep at night. Ginger ale or ginger candies can eliminate morning sickness symptoms, or try ginger tea in the evenings before bedtime.

Getting plenty of rest is a surefire way to help morning sickness. Lie down as often as you can, or if you feel nauseous. Try to take naps, or even watch a TV show or movie to take your mind off of feeling sick. If you ...

Remedies For Pregnancy Nausea

You may not be able to completely eliminate pregnancy nausea, but there are some things you can do to alleviate the symptoms. You might also notice that there are patterns to your nausea, such as always occurring after you eat a certain food, or at a specific time of day. By recognizing these patterns, you can treat pregnancy nausea effectively. Here are some tried and true tricks for keeping pregnancy nausea away:

Snack away sickness: Before you go to bed, eat a high protein or high carb snack. Not only do they prevent blood sugar swings, they also soak up stomach acid. Keep a packet of peanuts or crackers in your purse.

Nibble away at meals: Rather than eat three large meals a day, eat five small ones. Chew your food carefully and slowly, and avoid fatty or spicy foods. Stay away from smells or tastes that you know increase your nausea.

Sleep it off: The more sleep you get, the better. Aim for 8 hours a night, and go to bed around the same time each night. Take as many naps as you need to, and try to sleep when you're feeling sick. Although sleep may not always be a cure for nausea, it will provide you temporary relief.

Time your vitamins: Taking your vitamin in the morning, or on an empty stomach, can cause nausea or vomiting. Take your prenatal vitamin with your lunch or dinner, and look for liquid prenatal vitamins if you can't stomach tablets or capsules.

Acupressure to the rescue: Many women swear by acupressure bands, which are bracelets worn on the wrist that touch pressure points. Acupressure treatments may also be effective against pregnancy nausea.

Peppermint and lemon: Both peppermint and lemon are known for their anti-nausea properties. Such on a lemon slice, or carry lemon flavoured lollipops when you go out. Peppermint tea can soothe your stomach and relax you after a busy day.

Ginger for your health: Ginger is not only good for you, it can also ...
