First, I must share the ugly truth, there is no cure to morning sickness. This is not to say that the tips I will share will not help.

And I am not just saying that so that you don’t click out of this post because you want something that will Stop your morning sickness RIGHT AWAY!

This is to say that no ONE tip will help throughout your entire pregnancy.

You must try different things and see what works best for you. The tips I share helped get me through my morning sickness and I am grateful for them!

1. Plain Seltzer Water (Carbonated Water)

This was my best friend throughout my morning sickness phase!

The seltzer water HAD TO BE COLD! Also, the more bubbles it had the better lol. 

Before pregnancy, I did not like seltzer water. It had no taste and for that I can drink a sprite if I wanted soda.

(I got this to save some money)

This was not the case during pregnancy because the sugar in sprites or any soda created that thick saliva which almost always made me want to vomit. 

So give this a try!

2. Smoothies & Natural Juices

Whenever I couldn’t get myself to eat something, I would ask my hubby to make me a fruit smoothie. 
 

And again, because it’s a cold drink it helped me a lot. 

I would also buy freshly made juices during my work hours to get my nutrients in when I didn’t want to eat. But remember get juices you will actually enjoy so that you are able to keep it down

Drink them slowly!

3. Ginger Tea

This really helped me! 

I read about ginger helping during morning sickness but I didn’t like the taste until one day it got to the point where I was open to ANYTHING! 

My sister brought me a ginger tea she enjoyed at the time and when I tell you it felt like a magic drink! It really did lol. 

(this is the ginger tea)

The morning sickness symptoms would disappear. I use to drink them mostly in the evening because that’s when my morning sickness was at it’s peak.

4. Eat In Small Amounts But Often

I know this one might sound easier said then done when you are nauseous and don’t feel like eating but, the truth is the emptier your stomach is the more you feel like vomiting

So always try to eat something, preferably something healthy!

5. Saltine Crackers

Saltine Crackers are good to have next to you as soon as you wake up because you just went hours without eating which can cause nausea and vomiting.

They are also great snacks! (check them out here)

6. Keep Snacks With You At All Times

Like I mentioned before the emptier your stomach the more likely your chances of throwing up will be.

Therefore, carry snacks you enjoy like

  • fruits
  • cookie
  • crackers
  • sandwiches 
So that when you start to feel a little hungry you can eat something right away.

7. Stay Away From Your Triggers

This means staying away from smells, foods, or places that make you want to throw up or remind you of throwing up!

Check out my post “Morning Sickness: What to Expect” to find out what were some of my triggers.

8. Don’t Take Prenatal Vitamins on Empty Stomach

Have you seen the size of those things !

Prenatal vitamins may make you gag with or without eating.

But, having some food may make it so that you don’t actually throw up because of the pill and water on an empty stomach.

9. Carry Peppermint/Ginger Candy With You

Peppermint candy or Ginger candy to chew on when you are feeling nauseous. It has similar effects as the tea would.

Morning sickness remedies is something you try while it works and when it doesn’t you try something else!

12. Rest

Your body is working hard to grow a baby therefore, it can use all the rest it can get from all the hard work. 

In addition to that, if your body is over tired, your anxiety and stress levels will increase making you nauseous and possibly causing you to throw up. 

So give yourself permission to rest!
