1. Ginger Can Be An Aid To Relieving Morning Sickness
I know that I am getting on in years now but believe me I have gone through my share of morning sickness!
In my day we didn't really go to see the doctor when we felt nauseous while pregnant, we looked more towards natural remedies for relief from morning sickness and ginger was thought to be particularly helpful to overcome morning sickness!
I'm not saying that ginger will work for everyone but it does have health benefits associated with it and is particularly known to help with nausea and has been used for years as a natural way of relieving morning sickness.
Try keeping a pack of Ginger Chews or Ginger Gum in your bag so you have them handy whenever you start to feel queasy.
Another Thing You Can Try To Alleviate Your Pregnancy Related Nausea Is Ginger Tea
Now, if like me, you usually have some fresh root ginger in your fridge, it's really quite easy to make your own ginger tea. So give it a try, it just might help to ease your morning sickness.
How To Make Your Own Ginger Tea
Take about a 2 inch piece of fresh ginger then peel and thinly slice it. Put 4 cups of water into a saucepan and bring to the boil, add the ginger then cover and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the liquid and the ginger tea is ready to drink.
If you like you could add honey and lemon to suit your taste.
2. Prenancy Lollipops
Preggie Pops seem to be growing in popularity to help with morning sickness
I confess that until recently I had not heard of these pregnancy lollipops, never mind using them as a means of getting relief from morning sickness!
But, my daughter mentioned that her friend had suffered with morning sickness in the early stages of her pregnancy and thought that these had definitely helped. She also suggested that the drops, or lozenges, might be more convenient to carry with you if you have to go out.
These pregnancy lollipops are drug free and have natural flavourings. Some Mums claim that they have been a "Life Saver" and "Indispensable" in helping to ease morning sickness.
You can also get Preggie Pop Drops which you may find a little more convenient than the lollipops.
3. Take Your Mind Off It
Sounds easier said than done doesn't it when you are suffering from morning sickness? But how about giving yourself something to do every day like keeping a Pregnancy Journal to document all stages of your pregnancy? You will love to look back on it too as your little one grows up.
4. Sea Bands
It is claimed that Acupressure is one of the most effective treatments for morning sickness relief without resorting to drugs.
The Sea-Band is worn on the wrist and works by Acupressure on the point between the two central tendons at the wrist.
The great thing about these wrist bands is that they can naturally help to ease morning sickness, there are no drugs involved and therefore no side effects either.
I'm not claiming that these will work for everybody, but, people who have previously bought these Sea Bands think that they are one of the best ways to relieve morning sickness.
If you have been wondering how to cope with your morning sickness then these sea bands have to be worth a try. You can use these wrist bands together with some of the other natural remedies and rest assured that they are a safe, drug free way to help combat pregnancy related nausea.
5. If You Feel Sick First Thing In The Morning...
A plain biscuit, or, piece of dry toast may do the trick.
Women can experience morning sickness at any time of day, but, for many women the feeling of nausea is worse in the morning.
If you feel sick first thing in the morning give yourself time to get up slowly, and, try eating a plain biscuit or slice of dry toast before you get up.
Don't be tempted to butter your toast because that will load it with fats, and, something which isn't greasy, and is quite bland, will have a much better effect.
