Many of my pregnant friends would say that it really shouldn’t be called “Morning Sickness Relief.” They said that a more accurate term would be “Day sickness.” I was lucky and only had the morning version in a mild form, but it still wasn’t fun.
Unfortunately, there is no “one size fits all” approach to dealing with the common pregnancy experience of morning sickness. It’s more of a trial and error to find what works for you. Here are a few things to try:
#1. Munch on dry crackers by Late July or Newman’s Own graham cracker cookies (or look for brands that use butter, palm oil/fruit)-especially first thing in the morning
#2. Keep hydrated by sipping on water or warmed stock
#3. Drink raw real milk (read more on this in FHP guide)
#4. Munch or suck on whole wheat pretzels
#5. Try some ginger in the form of tea (can make it iced tea), crystalline, gingersnaps (Mi-Del is a good brand name)
#6. Eat small mini meals every three hours (this also helps reduce food cravings)
#7. Please be sure to see your OB/GYN if you are not able to eat, hold down food/fluids, not gaining or losing weight
#8. Avoid spicy or heavy foods
#9. Vitamin B6 may be of help which is found in these foods: raw full-fat dairy, raw egg yolk from cage-free pastured chicken (heat destroys B6), sprouted grains, onions, sweet potato, lacto- fermented foods (these foods increase the bacteria in your gut which produce vitamin B6).
Try any of these to see if they provide you with some relief from your morning sickness. If one doesn’t work, maybe another one will. The main idea is not to let your belly be empty and to keep fluids coming in. But, also to trust your instinct and seek medical advice if you are not able to keep fluids or foods down-if in doubt at least ask your OB/GYN.
