Tips for Soothing Morning Sickness

I’ve had 5 Babies and with each Pregnancy I’ve had HORRIBLE Morning Sickness. The kind that leaves me in bed without energy and makes me want to get sick at the slightest things. It’s been bad folks. Although, I know that it’s a sign that my pregnancy is on track and doing what it’s supposed to, the side effects aren’t pleasant. It’s especially hard when you’re trying to take care of family,kids or a job. Even though, I can’t completely kick the morning sickness to the curve (until around week 12-13 ish) here are some Tips for Soothing Morning Sickness that have helped me cope with this necessary yuck.

1. Eat many little meals:

I understand that the last thing you want to do when you have morning sickness is to eat. However, eating many little meals will help you be able to tolerate things better.

2.Stick to Saltier foods:

Saltine crackers for example are fantastic to help with an upset stomach.

3. Go for Citrus:

The smell of citrus can actually help with the nausea greatly. I remember when I was pregnant with my first a doctor friend told me to grab a lemon and sniff it. It was amazing the relief I felt when I did that. I know it’s impossible to carry lemons around but Citrus essential oils may be the next best thing.

4.Get Rest!

I know it can be hard but sleeping helps. Your body will ask you for it. So if you can, take those naps. Go to bed early, Unplug from technology and just rest. It’s amazing how a little cat nap or a good night’s rest will make you feel.

5.Avoid Spicy/Fatty Foods:

Trust me you’ll thank me. Anything that sounds like a bad idea probably is. Fatty & Spicy foods will aggravate your stomach so take it easy on them and it will help.

6. Stay hydrated:

I know the last thing you want is to have anything pass your lips but it’s soooo important to have a good amount of water in your system. One of the biggest dangers when experiencing morning sickness is the fact that many women become dehydrated and that ends up with a hospital visit.  I hate drinking water but I do add a few things to make it easier. I either add some lemon to my water (remember the citrus helps) or I drink seltzer water.  Try to stay away from Soda’s and sugar drinks. Although when I’m feeling really bad a little shot of room temperature coke has helped.

7. Prenatal Vitamin Woes?

If one of the problem’s your having is taking your prenatal vitamins, check with your doctor but they may recommend chew able kids vitamins that work just as well and aren’t as hard of a pill to swallow.

8.Ginger :

Ginger is known for it’s relief of nausea. Sipping on Ginger Ale (real ginger ale not the fake stuff) or Ginger tea may give you immense relief to get through your day.

Although morning sickness is very normal in pregnancy there can be cases where you may need to talk to your doctor about helping you control it with something stronger. Many women suffer from Hyperemesis gravidarum which is excessive vomiting and that can put your little one or yourself in danger. So if you feel it’s too much, make sure and speak to your doctor.

Congratulations on your new journey. Morning sickness isn’t the funnest way to begin pregnancy. However, it will be all worth it when you are holding your little one.

    I have such bad morning sickness this pregnancy, I will give some of these a try. I found prenatal vitamins that are gummies that are easier for me to take!

    I was lucky with my two I didn’t get morning sickness. Maybe a little queasy,once or twice but nothing bad. I did crave citrus though. Wonder if that help.

    These are all good tips. I would often add fresh lemon juice or ginger to my tea, and it could help me feel better.

    I’m glad you mentioned to talk to your doc if it feels too much. Ginger and citrus worked in my first pregnancy (where the morning sickness ended at 12 weeks), but only made things worse with my current pregnancy. I vomited all the time and was even hospitalized once. Zofran didn’t do anything for me, and I wasn’t comfortable with a Category B drug. But then I ended up being prescribed Diclegis, which is a category A, and was lifechanging. Especially for the unlucky few like me who still get morning sickness/excessive vomiting if I forgot my pills and I’m 30 weeks tomorrow with a perfectly healthy pregnancy.

    Just wanted to mention that there is a Category A option that has shown evidence to be safe in pregnant women. One should make the best decision for them, of course, but this put me more at ease so I didn’t have to suffer unnecessarily with a FT job and a 3 year old at home.

      So true!! I think we’re so worried about not taking anything that might hurt the baby that sometimes not taking anything will hurt us and in turn hurt the baby. It’s so important to discuss with your doctor any concerns you have, even if they’re small

    I did all the tips that you mentioned here and it does helps. Both my pregnancies were horrible morning sickness. My favorite drink was ice water with slices of strawberries and chia seeds. I crave those a lot. I also ate a lot of cuties oranges.

    Morning sickness is definitely no fun. Both pregnancies I had this queasy feeling from week 5 to week 10. I wonder if my prenatals had something to do with it. I hope we will be blessed with another little one, but I would love to skip the sickness. lol
