Morning sickness is the nausea that is usually associated with the first trimester of pregnancy. It can last longer for some.
It is generally brought on by the change in hormones due to pregnancy. Some individuals can experience all day or evening sickness as well.
Morning sickness symptoms will include nausea, vomiting, fatigue and dizziness.
But there is relief!
7 Morning Sickness Remedies That Work:
Ginger is an amazing herb and it is a great remedy for morning sickness.
You have a wide variety options as well:
Before you go and grab the peppermint essential oil – put it down. Peppermint essential oil is a no go during pregnancy.
You can however, add fresh mint to ice water. Peppermint tea is a great remedy for nausea.
Getting a good night sleep has been know to help with nausea and morning sickness. Getting some extra rest throughout the day and taking it easy.
Calm your tummy grumbles with crackers.
5. Acupuncture & Massage
Both acupuncture and massage are know to help with nausea. Please make sure you are seeing a registered therapist that is aware you are pregnant. Certain pressure points should not be massaged during pregnancy as they have been know to induce labor.
For some people the smell of citrus or sipping on lemon water helps in relieving nausea.
Hydration is the key. Morning sickness and the early stages of pregnancy can be dehydrating. Keep a water bottle handy at all times and work toward increasing your intake. This will also help if you decide to breast feed.
An honest observation and tips for horrible morning sickness.
With both of my pregnancies I have had horrible morning sickness. I was offered a medical supplement to assist in the process but I wasn’t sure about the side effects so I declined.
I have found extra sleep, fluids, magnesium and ginger to be helpful in relieving some of the symptoms. I also keep a package of crackers handy.
Instead of bubbly pop I opt for sparkling water or Kombucha to help with the nausea.
Some days the dizziness is so bad that I just need to rest and drink lots of fluids. Letting my body rest and take care of itself while keeping hydrated is important.
Every pregnancy is different.
You may have two weeks or two months of morning sickness. Every body is different and every pregnancy is different.
Choose the best morning sickness remedy for you. Consult your physician, naturopath, friends and family. Make an informed decision that works for you.
Have a great day,
