Most moms have felt that tinge of morning sickness creep up while dealing with pregnancy. While most of us would rather not have morning sickness at all, we can’t just wish it away. So we try to find something that helps get rid of it. When you’re pregnant, you can’t take a lot of medications, which is why it’s so important to get creative! Here are some ways you can help get rid of morning sickness naturally.
Stay in bed the next 9 months
That’s right, don’t even try to get out of bed. I mean, isn’t that how bad morning sickness makes us feel? If I could, I totally would stay in bed the next 9 months, but I do have other kids depending on me. I must trudge on!
Try everything that has ginger in it
While pregnant, I have seen some funny looking ginger products. I’m not a huge fan of ginger, so you can imagine my face whenever I tried to suck on anything ginger. Blah!
Although there are a few ginger products that aren’t too bad. Like Sea-Band Mama Ginger Lozenges. They work quickly to settle your tummy and are free from artificial colors and flavors. Plus they have folic acid which is a must during pregnancy!
Eat some food, woman
I know that when you feel icky, the last thing you want is food. However, sometimes this is the best thing for you!
Eat something small to help your tummy feel better. You can do something dry like toast or crackers or go for something like soup. As much as it kills you to try and eat something, you need to do it. Trust it will make you feel LOADS better.
Go for an herbal tea
You may be thinking that herbal tea isn’t going to help, but you’re wrong! Herbal tea has all kinds of good stuff that will naturally make your tummy feel better.
Even if it only gives you a fake placebo effect, maybe it’ll be enough to get you through washing the dishes. Try flavors like peppermint. They are known for settling upset stomachs.
Take a walk
I know, I know – the last thing you want to do is get out of bed and go for a walk, but it’s okay! In all seriousness, walking is a great way to relieve some of the morning sickness.
I know that some of us don’t deal with morning sickness, only in the morning. So, walks are a great way to relieve the morning sickness in the afternoon. Throw on a Sea-Band beforehand and you’ll be feeling better in no time.
Sea-Band makes acupressure bands for morning sickness. They work by placing a gentle pressure on the P6 acupressure point on the inner wrist. This, in turn, signals your body to release natural healing properties to make you feel better. I love that it is completely natural and reusable. Way better than spending tons of money on everything that might help.
It’s just as good as their aromatherapy rollette that uses natural essential oils to relieve your nausea. It smells great with scents of lime, spearmint, and ginger and can easily be thrown into a pocket or purse so you’ll always be ready.
So no to the spicy stuff
Want to know what can be bad for morning sickness? Spicy foods! I’m a spicy food lover, but when pregnant, I avoid it like the plague. So, maybe eating jalapenos straight from the jar isn’t the best idea. While you’re pregnant and dealing with nausea, just say no to the spicy stuff.
Dealing with morning sickness naturally comes down to finding out what triggers your morning sickness. If you are sick all the time, try using some of these tips, they could really help.
When you can’t keep going any longer, with the whole morning sickness thing, just remember that you’re doing something amazing and that is growing a baby inside of you! Morning sickness ain’t got nothin’ on you mama.
