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.
