Morning Sickness

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. 

  1. Eat small and frequent meals.  Keeping your stomach full can keep your blood sugar stable and help you to avoid nausea.  
  2. Avoid greasy foods.  Grease can cause you to feel nauseous, so eat things that are a bit more nutrient dense. 
  3. Avoid strong smells.  Your nose is a bit more sensitive, so try to avoid things that may cause you to get sick. 
  4. Eat something sour.  Sucking on a lemon or smelling it can help to reduce morning sickness for some people. 
  5. Taking 25mg of vitamin B6 three times per day works for some people. Please consult your doctor before using this supplement. 
  6. Motion sickness bracelets or patches work for some, so give it a try. You can also try acupressure bands. 
  7. Try a carbonated drink such as seltzer water, sparkling water, or a non-caffeinated drink such as sprite, ginger ale, or 7-up.
