Deal With Morning Sickness

Deal With Morning Sickness

The good news is, you’re pregnant. The bad news is, you will probably feel sick for at least the first trimester. Morning sickness can happen throughout the day, and it can last throughout your pregnancy, so follow these steps to ease the nausea.


1. Try not to let yourself get hungry; an empty stomach can increase nausea.

2. Keep a supply of Saltine crackers handy. Have some in the morning before you get out of bed to settle your stomach.

3. Avoid high-fat foods – especially fried foods – and stay away from spicy and acidic foods.

4. Eat foods high in B vitamins, which decrease nausea.

5. Add a bit of ginger to your diet in the form of ginger ale, ginger tea or gingersnaps. Or use ginger in your recipes.

6. Experiment with natural remedies such as papaya enzyme, vitamin B-6 or acupressure wristbands.

7. Drink plenty of water between meals. Try sparkling water with a slice of lemon.

8. Take your prenatal vitamins with food. Your nausea will increase if you take them on an empty stomach.

9. Avoid taking iron supplements in the first trimester unless you are anemic. Iron can be hard on your stomach.

10. Utilize the fleeting moments when you feel OK to eat healthful foods and get a little exercise.
