Pregnancy Tips

Combating Morning Sickness

  1. Graze throughout the day. You may find that eating little and often will help to settle your stomach.
  2. Nibble on some plain snacks. Before getting up, eat a piece of dry toast or nibble on a few crackers.
  3. Drink plenty of water. Sickness can leave you dehydrated which in turn can make you feel even more nauseous, so it's essential to keep your liquids up.
  4. Avoid heavy meals or rich foods. Overly heavy or fatty meals can put additional pressure on your system, so keep your diet light and fresh. 
  5. Sniff a fresh scent. Avoid overpowering smells of any kind and keep a bottle of lavender in your bag, or even put a lemon in your water to smell and stay fresh.
  6. Drink some hot ginger. Settle your stomach with some grated ginger root stirred into a mug of boiling water.
