Mommy's Nausea Remedies

I know you may feel weak and "something smells in the refridgerator"!  Nausea is very common in pregnancy but can be managed by monitoring your diet and surroundings.  Make your place special with special oils and burners, incense, aromatherapeutic baths and eating lightly avoiding food prepared fried, with a lot of dairy and meat.  You will find that after you honor your body and baby you will pass through the woods and be able to enjoy your pregnancy more.  Here are just a few suggestions on some things that are safe to use to help you through.      

Peace & Comfort


1. Try having a cup of ginger tea to soothe your stomach. This spicy herb is also used to ease motion sickness. Whenever you feel queasy, sip some hot ginger tea.

 

 

 

2. There are also several herbal teas that are known to reduce nausea. Try sipping herbal teas made with camomile, lemon balm and peppermint. If you have heartburn, avoid peppermint tea.

 

3. Another helpful ingredient to combat morning sickness is red raspberry-leaf tea. The herb not only eases symptoms of morning sickness, but is also known to relax the smooth muscles of the uterus. Some studies, however, say that raspberry leaves may cause uterine contractions — check with your midwife/doctor beforehand whether you can have it.

 

3. Try having a cup of flat, room-temperature ginger ale. Surprisingly, this helps pregnant women feel better. I actually did this thorughout all three of mine and it works!  However, ensure that you avoid ginger ale with fizz because that would increase the production of more stomach acid.

 

4. Keep some fennel seeds near your bed side and chew on them whenever you feel queasy.

 

5. Experts also say that women who take 25 milligrams of vitamin B6 thrice daily for three days had reduced nausea and vomiting. However, check with your midwife/gynaecologist before popping any pill.

 

6. Another simple solution is to drink a glass of water every hour. Even if you wake up during the night to visit the bathroom, have a glass of water. This will keep you hydrated. When your urine is clear, it means you are having enough water.

 

7. Stack up fruit-bars in your freezer. They will help replace the sugars you have lost by throwing up.  Ginger tea with agave or honey frozen pops were good for me.

 

8. Sniff a slice of lemon. You could also drink water with a few drops of lemon.

 

9. Some women reportedly feel good when they wake up and immediately eat a small snack. Keep some biscuits/crackers next to your bed, so that you can reach out to them as soon as you wake up.

 

10. Avoid eating three large meals everyday. Instead, eat several small meals throughout the day. Smaller light meals are easier to keep down and easier to digest.

 

11. Stay away from fried, fatty foods, which can encourage nausea.
