Tips to Beat Morning Sickness

(page 2 of 2)

Morning sickness remedies

  • Try wearing an acupressure band - often sold as a motion-sickness band. There is a pressure point on your wrist that may help relieve nausea from pregnancy as well as motion.

  • Sip water throughout the day. Don't drink so much that you feel full, which can slosh around in your stomach and add to nausea, but drink a little every few minutes.

  • Eat a snack before you get up in the morning. Keep crackers by your bed and eat a few 20 minutes before trying to get up. This will help settle your stomach before you begin moving around.

  • Take your time getting out of bed in the morning; slowly change positions when lying down

  • Keep moist, unscented towelettes nearby to refresh your face after nausea or vomiting

  • Get some exercise (brisk walk, swimming, bicycle riding, yoga, stretching)

  • Get fresh air by either going outside or opening windows

  • Try snacking on ginger. For some, fresh or candied ginger can ease morning sickness.

  • Identify triggers and avoid them as much as possible

  • Taking vitamin B6 supplements seems to help some women with morning sickness, but should only be taken in recommended doses, so first talk to your health care provider.
