10 Best Ways To Cure Morning Sickness

By   

Morning sickness, or nausea, is very common with pregnant women, especially in early pregnancy. The rapid influx of hormones and body changes in early pregnancy can lead to nausea and sick feelings not just in the morning, but all day long. Read on for some popular cures for this annoying symptom of pregnancy.

1 Tip #1: Grab A Saltine Cracker

One of the most common remedies for pregnant women with morning sickness are plain old saltine crackers. Many women report leaving crackers beside their beds, and nibbling them first thing in the morning to settle their stomachs. You can do this before ever leaving bed.

2 Tip #2: Maintain A Full Stomach

If you eat several small meals during the day, your belly will never be empty and you might be less likely to feel sick. Eat whatever you can without feeling sick, whether that be carbs, protein, fruit, or veggies.

3 Tip #3: No Laying Down On The Job

Make sure that you don’t lay down right after eating. This is especially true about laying on your left side as this can slow your digestion.

4 Tips #4: Stay Hydrated

Make sure to drink enough water so that you don’t get dehydrated. You might even want to purchase an electrolyte sports drink to help replenish fluids that you have lost through sickness.

5 Tip #5: Take A Walk
Many women report that exercise helps to ease their stomachs, so try a short walk. Exercise is good for you anyway, so you will just be giving yourself an added benefit.

6 Tip #6: Bring Along A Mint

Many women say that the taste of peppermints helps to ease nausea that they experience in early pregnancy. Grab some mints or some minty gum and keep it on you in case of emergency.

8 Tip #8: Eat Plain Food This is not a time to go with super exotic, super spicy, super greasy foods. If you can find something plain and bland to eat that doesn’t bother you too much, just stick with it and don’t push the issue.

10 Tip #10: Ask your Doctor If you are really at the end of your rope when it comes to your nausea, ask your doctor. Sometimes, he or she will be able to prescribe you a medicine to give you some relief. It might be a little bit pricier than some of the other options, but acupuncture is a treatment option that many women swear by to combat morning sickness. Give it a try if all else fails.
