Morning Sickness

April 27, 2021

Morning sickness is the worst!!

Here are 7 Tips to help put your morning sickness to bed:

1. Get enough sleep! Go to be at a reasonable time. Take it slow getting out of bed in the morning. You can even have a stash of crackers on your nightstand to nibble on before you get out of bed.

2. Eat More Frequently: It is best to eat 5-6 meals a day 2-3 hours apart. This will avoid your stomach from being completely empty, helping with nausea.

3. Take the right vitamins at the right time: Use whole-food-derived prenatal vitamins. Don’t take your prenatal on an empty stomach. Taking them at night is a good idea.

4. Don’t Force Yourself to Eat Certain Foods: Eat the foods that settle best in your tummy vs trying to go all out and eat foods that don’t sit well.

5. Don’t Guzzle Your Water! This will make your stomach feel sloshy and unsettled. Stay hydrated by taking little sips throughout the day.

6. Wear an Anti-Nausea Bracelet: These provide acupressure to a point on your wrist to help with your nausea.

7. Eat Ginger: You can use ginger chews or tea, or even just cooking with ginger will help. The ginger will help settle your tummy.
