Morning Sickness Doesn’t Have To Make You Miserable: Tips To Help

Morning sickness is a very unpleasant part of pregnancy.  Many women love being pregnant and all the new experiences it brings, with the exception of morning sickness.

Morning sickness is when your body gets nauseated when you are expecting.  It can happen at any time of the day or night and is most common in the first trimester.  It is unusual, but not unheard of, for a woman’s morning sickness to continue on past the first trimester.  Doctors are not exactly sure why pregnant women get morning sickness but they think it may have something to do with the fluctuating hormones in a woman’s body when she is pregnant.  Whatever the reason, when you have it, all you want is relief.

Luckily, there are some things you can do to help with morning sickness.  The oldest remedy is probably saltine crackers like Zestas.  Nibbling on these in the mornings can help to settle your stomach.  Sipping on Sprite or Gatorade can help.  Peppermint tea is also said to bring relief.

Preggo Pops are relatively new to the market but have rave reviews for their ability to help with morning sickness. They are a special lollipop that helps to settle your stomach when you are pregnant.

Seabands are wonderful for morning sickness.  They are a special kind of bracelet that is placed at a specific point on your wrist to place pressure on a certain point and suppress nausea.  They are very safe and very effective at reducing or eliminating morning sickness.

Whatever remedies you decide to try, do not hesitate to ask your doctor about them if you feel any concern at all.  In addition, you should let your doctor know if your morning sickness becomes severe or uncontrollable.

And old remedy is to put just a tiny sprinkle of salt on a glass of 7UP.  This is a good tip to try out.  Coca-cola soda helps to settle sick bellies as well.
