Morning sickness is an issue that a lot of people deal with, but it’s not something that anyone prepares you for.
I never dealt with morning sickness, instead I had dry heaves in the evening a few times, but I have had plenty of clients who have dealt with this issue and I want to share some of the things that worked for them.
- Eat small and frequent meals. Keeping your stomach full can keep your blood sugar stable and help you to avoid nausea.
- Avoid greasy foods. Grease can cause you to feel nauseous, so eat things that are a bit more nutrient dense.
- Avoid strong smells. Your nose is a bit more sensitive, so try to avoid things that may cause you to get sick.
- Eat something sour. Sucking on a lemon or smelling it can help to reduce morning sickness for some people.
- Taking 25mg of vitamin B6 three times per day works for some people. Please consult your doctor before using this supplement.
- Motion sickness bracelets or patches work for some, so give it a try. You can also try acupressure bands.
- Try a carbonated drink such as seltzer water, sparkling water, or a non-caffeinated drink such as sprite, ginger ale, or 7-up.
