Morning Sickness – Tips & Tricks!

Pregnancy, it can be one of the most amazing experiences of your life, the feeling of growing your very own tiny human in your belly is wonderful! But not all aspects of pregnancy are particularly enjoyable.

Morning sickness, its let’s be honest, it’s horrific! Some women suffer morning sickness very occasionally, others get it every day for the first three months, and then there are some mothers like myself who suffer morning sickness everyday for the duration of the pregnancy.

Doctors can subscribe tablets which help the sickness, but if you’re like me you’re not overly keen on taking medication whilst pregnant.

So instead here are a few home remedies which might help you get through your morning sickness.

This root is meant to help settle your stomach and some women do swear by it. You can have it in many ways; ginger tea, ginger biscuits or ginger ale/soda.

Much like the ginger mints apparently help to settle the feeling of queasiness so some extra strong mints or a pack of polos could help you get through the morning sickness months.

I know the idea of eating anything while you’re feeling sick can fill you with dread, but dry toast isn’t to help take away that sickly feeling.

If you’re feeling like you’re about to spill your lunch the idea of going anywhere isn’t very nice but some new scenery and some fresh air in your lungs can do wonders.

Having a big meal is near on impossible when you’re feeling unwell, but an empty stomach isn’t helping either. So why not try eating small meals more often, don’t let your stomach get too empty and don’t fill it up completely either.

It’s quite common that women that suffer from motion sickness are likely to also get morning sickness, so why not try the bands that go on your wrist to help combat motion sickness to try to help your morning sickness.

If you’ve tried everything you can think of but that morning sickness is still too bad and you can’t get over it don’t be afraid to see your doctor or speak to your midwife. Sometimes no matter what we do we need medical intervention so don’t feel like you have to suffer in silence.
