Experiencing morning sickness is never any fun! No one likes to wake up feeling nauseous. Today, I am going to share a few tips on how to relieve your morning sickness so you can get on with your day.
Instead of curling up into a ball on your bed after vomiting, I want you to have the best day possible. While morning sickness is normal, you don’t have to suffer for months. With a few of these home remedies, you’ll be up and at em’ in no time.
5. Skip the Coffee
Caffeine consumption increases your risk of stomach acid release. Plus, caffeine can disrupt the gastrointestinal tract.
You’re already getting enough pressure on your GI tract from your fetus pushing on it. If you are experiencing extreme morning sickness, skip your daily cup of coffee.
Sucking on a ginger lozenge can make all of the difference. Because ginger contains healing properties, ginger soothes nausea and can ease an upset stomach.
Try ginger tea, ginger chews, ginger ale, or ginger capsules. When you first have signs of nausea, reach for the ginger and see if that helps.
Smelling mint or citrus can ease nausea. There are so many different ways to experience these calming scents.
You can try diffusers, body products, candles, or dousing a cotton ball with essential oil and putting it to your nose. Go out and grab some essential oils and enjoy the beneficial effects of aromatherapy.
2. Supplement Timing
Instead of taking your medication, supplements, prenatal vitamins, and whatever else in the morning, try to take it in the evening. If you must take it in the morning, try to push it back as far as you can so that you’re not ingesting pills on an empty stomach.
Pregnant or not, taking your medicine without eating a little bit of food can cause anyone to feel like they’re going to hurl!
1. Eat Something Sour
According to doctors and mommies, eating something sour actually makes many pregnant women feel better. Try sour candies, squeeze lemon into your water, or smell something sour.
I’m sure the last thing you want to do is suck on something sour when you’re feeling so sick, but if it could snap you out of your nausea, you might want to consider giving it a go!
Morning sickness doesn’t have to be this awful thing that you just have to bear during pregnancy. There are so many treatments that are designed to help you feel better.
I hope these tips proved to be helpful. If you’re still feeling sick, talk to your doctor about treatment options. Losing weight and becoming hydrated is dangerous for you and your baby.
Staying healthy is essential. I wish you the best during the rest of your pregnancy!
