HELP WITH MORNING SICKNESS

Morning sickness can happen to any pregnant woman. Some of the old wives’ tales tend to hint that morning sickness happens more if you’re pregnant with a girl but that isn’t always the case.

It’s important to know that morning sickness can occur at any time of the day and at any stage throughout your pregnancy, not just ‘in the morning’. It tends to show itself more so in the morning and that’s where it gets its 
name from but it can strike at any time really.

Here are some easy ways to help curb morning sickness throughout your pregnancy.

Eat throughout the day

It’s very important to not forget to eat, even if you’re feeling nauseous. Your body is in the process of making a baby and it needs all the healthy nutrition that it can get.

It can be extremely tempting to not eat at all if you’re experiencing feelings of nausea, but don’t forget that you and your growing baby do need to get nutrients to each other in order for your bodies to work harmoniously together.

Keep it simple

The best foods to eat if morning sickness is setting you back is bland foods like crackers (water crackers, saltines, wheat thins, rice cakes), plain cereal, and carbohydrate-rich items like toast, pretzels, muslie bars.
Greasy, fatty foods may feel good in the moment but will soon heighten your nauseating feelings so it’s best to steer clear of those.

Slow things down

Moving too fast can also trigger your morning sickness into a frenzied state, so pace yourself and don’t rush.
This slower state can be a tremendous help, especially at the beginning of your day. Taking some extra time to fully wake up and start your day on a slower scale can help you, your mindset, and your body get morning sickness under control before it starts to take over.

Know your trigger smells

Some women experience an increased sensitivity to smells while they are pregnant. If you’re one of them, then get to know your trigger smells avoid them when possible.

Reach for some everyday things

Some women have found relief from morning sickness in everyday things like ginger and lemons. It can’t hurt to try them, right?

Pour yourself a tall glass of ginger ale, munch on some gingersnaps, or make a warm cup of ginger tea and see if any of those help call down the nauseousness.

To incorporate lemons into the mix you can try a tall glass of homemade lemonade, squeeze some lemon juice into your water, brew some lemon tea, or try lighting a lemon scented candle. Ginger and lemons are easy, cheap, and natural ways to help get you through the morning sickness.

 It’s very important to stay hydrated throughout your entire pregnancy and even more so if you’ve been vomiting. Severe dehydration can mean a trip to the emergency room, so it’s best to take preventative measures and always keep water with you regardless of where you are.

 If you’re feeling like nothing is helping you with these feelings of nausea, then call your doctor. There are medications you can take during pregnancy that can help lessen the morning sickness.

Always do your own research and write down your concerns and questions. Bring them with you to your doctor’s visit. Working together with your doctor is always the best way to help overcome pregnancy concerns.

Comfortable Maternity Pyjamas


Being pregnant and caring for a newborn baby can be completely exhausting for any pregnant women or mother of a small baby, especially when you also have older children to care for. I think pregnant women throughout the world would agree that a comfortable nights sleep can make all the difference. This is especially important during the later stages of your pregnancy and in the first few months of your newborns life, when changes to a pregnant womens body can take its’ toll physically. Any new mum who is feeding a newborn baby every 3-4 hours would also agree that feeling comfortable whilst sleeping and breastfeeding is a high priority. I recall the feeling of complete exhilaration when I finally had six hours of uninterrupted sleep when each of my children starting sleeping longer between breastfeeds.

There is such an extensive range of maternity clothing available now and investing in some comfortable maternity sleepwear is well worth the money. Whether you prefer maternity pyjamas or a comfortable maternity nightie there is an array of styles to choose from. If you want to get the best value for your maternity sleepwear purchase the girls at motherLand recommend that you choose a pair that is also designed for breastfeeding. This will ensure that you are able to breastfeed comfortable which makes the world of difference when you are feeding late at night, early in the morning or if unexpected guest drop by. We also recommend that you choose maternity sleepwear made from great quality, stretchy fabrics that will cater perfectly to the changing shape of your body throughout your pregnancy as your belly expands and then after your baby is born. Maternity pyjamas pants vary in style – some are designed to be worn over your baby bump, some are designed to be worn under your belly whilst others are designed to worn either over your bump or folded down and worn underneath. MotherLand has recently introduced a luxurious bamboo maternity nightie (picture above) which is also designed for breastfeeding. It is made from a super soft, luxuriously comfortable fabric and would also make the perfect gift for your favourite pregnant girl to pack in her hospital bag.

Breastfeeding In Public

Many women feel self conscious when they need to breastfeed in public, particularly when it’s new and both mum and baby are still mastering the art.

Predicting The Sex Of Your Baby

Mums and dads have always been curious about the sex of the child they are carrying. In the days before scans were available, women used all kinds of weird and wonderful methods of defining the sex of their child. Here are a few Old Wives’ Tales that I have heard. Remember though, that they are ONLY for fun.

If your left breast is bigger than the right during pregnancy, you're having a girl. If the right is bigger, it'll be a boy. If they are the same size, you're in for a surprise!  

If you get moody during pregnancy you are more likely to have a girl. This is because all women are moody, and when carrying a girl you become doubly so.

If you carry the baby out front (others can’t see your pregnancy from behind) then you will have a boy. If others can tell that you are pregnant when looking at you from behind, then you will have a girl.

Have the mum-to-be pick up a key. If she picks it up by the round end, it will be a boy. If she picks it up by the long end, it will be a girl. Should she pick it up at the middle, twins are on the way.

If the mother's age at conception and the year of conception are both even or both odd, the baby is a girl. If one is even and one is odd, the baby is a boy.

Ask the mum-to-be to pick a number. Match the number with the corresponding letter of the alphabet (A=1, B=2 etc). Then ask her to choose a name beginning with that letter. If she chooses a boy’s name, it will be a boy. If she chooses a girl’s name, it will be a girl.

Hang a gold pendant (preferably one the mother wears often) over the palm of the mother’s hand. If the pendant moves in a circular motion, it will be a girl. If it swings back and forth, a boy is on the way.

If the mum-to-be was the more aggressive partner when the baby was conceived, it will be a boy. If the father was the more aggressive, the baby will be a girl.

If you suffer from acne during pregnancy, you will have a girl.

What side does the mum-to-be lay on while she's resting? If she lies on her left, it's a boy; on her right, it's a girl.

 If young boys (pre-school age) show interest in you while you're pregnant, it will be a girl. If they ignore you, expect a boy.

Ask the mum-to-be to show you her hands. If she shows them palms up, it's a girl; palms down, a boy.

If you dream of girls, you will have a boy. If you dream of boys, you will have a girl.
