if you're checking this thread out, chances are you're looking for a way to get rid of the nasty nastiness that is morning sickness.. although, MORNING sickness can technically strike at any time of the day.. morning, noon, evening.. or 24/7!

Here are some common remedies for helping to relieve morning... er... PREGNANCY sickness

  • eat plain and dry food before getting out of bed in the morning (crackers are a great idea)
  • eat lots of protein (nuts, eggs, meat etc)
  • eat small & often - your 3 main meals a day may become 6 mini-main-meals a day
  • if you have trouble keeping food down at meal times, try eating something salty before hand
  • don't drink while you eat
  • if your nausea is associated with the smell of food, try eating COLD food - it smells less!
  • garlic, onion, acidic fruits & vegetables are common foods that tend to not agree with pregnant women
  • heat can cause nausea, so try to stay in cooler rooms
  • tiredness can also cause morning sickness, so try to nap during the day
  • cook in a well ventilated room, so the smells don't linger
  • try to sleep with a window open, to keep your bedroom ventilated (obviously this is more for summer)
  • stress can increase the physical symptoms of morning sickness
  • if you're having trouble keeping your prenatals down, try taking them later in the day
  • ginger is a long used remedy - ginger in capsule form - 3x 250mg a day, sucking on ginger lozenges/candy, chew crystalised ginger, drink ginger ale/ginger lemonade/ginger tea
  • peppermint tea is great for a yucky tummy
  • accupressure works for some women

*IF your morning sickness is making you miserable &/or you can't keep anything down, talk to your doctor about potential medical remedies (such as Zofran)

***** check with your doctor before taking any herbal morning sickness supplements
