Learn 10 natural ways to mange morning sickness during pregnancy

Morning sickness is common in the first trimester of pregnancy. Some resources report that more than 50% of pregnant women experience morning sickness.

 

Here’s the deal:

 

Although is it called morning sickness, it can sneak up on you at any time of day. And, while most women leave morning sickness in the first trimester, there are women who experience morning sickness throughout their entire pregnancy.

 

10 NATURAL MORNING SICKNESS REMEDIES

  1. Real lemons and lemon products (lemonade, lemon water, lemon drops)
  2. Ginger
  3. Peppermint
  4. Vitamin B6
  5. Some women swear by Preggie Drops
  6. Motion sickness wristbands
  7. Eat well (Try to avoid greasy and processed foods)
  8. Eat small meals several times throughout the day.
  9. Stay hydrated
  10. Rest

 

I am a huge proponent of natural remedies; however, I also appreciate that sometimes medication may be the solution for an individual. Talk to your medical provider to determine all your options and what will work best for you.

 

Whenever I experienced feelings of nausea, I used lemons. The fresh lemon smell and lemon flavored anything was my go-to. I also drank apple cider vinegar diluted in water. I didn’t experience any vomiting during my pregnancy. But the thing is…

 

Every woman and every pregnancy is unique. So what works for one woman, will not work for every woman.

 

Just beware…

 

In general morning sickness isn’t considered dangerous BUT there is something called Hyperemesis Gravidarum that you should know about.

 

John Hopkins Medicine calls it { morning sickness x 1,000}. YIKES!!

 

Hyperemesis Gravidarum or HG is persistent nausea or vomiting that may result in dehydration, not being able to keep food down, loss of weight, and extreme fatigue. Please, see your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms at any time during your pregnancy.

 

Why some women get HG is not fully understood; however mild cases are treated with diet, rest, and antacids, more severe cases can result in hospitalization.


 

If you are experiencing either morning sickness or HG, I’m sending you positive vibes and I hope that some of these natural remedies can help you manage.
