Ways to Relieve Nausea During Pregnancy

Ah, the joys of pregnancy – nausea is just one of the many, many things you may have the pleasure of experiencing as you go along. Ironically, it’s noted as a sign of a healthy pregnancy. The worse you feel, the better your pregnancy. Go figure.

Nausea typically strikes during the first trimester and can be as varied as the rollercoaster of emotions you’re about to embark on. It might last only through the morning (hence the term “morning sickness”); it might come on after lunch or mid-afternoon; or if you’re lucky like I was, it will last all day and all night. Nausea may be accompanied by vomiting, the severity of which is also variable – it may happen once a day, every time you eat, or at random times throughout the day.

The good news is that nausea typically disappears as you enter the second trimester. However, you’re likely going to want some relief before then. So, what works? For me, nothing, and I tried almost every suggestion under the sun. That’s not to say something won’t work for you, and to that end, here’s a list of possible cures for pregnancy nausea. These are just suggestions, always follow your doctor’s advice.

How to Relieve Pregnancy Nausea

  • Eat a few soda crackers (saltines) before even getting out of bed
  • Suck on sour lemon candies throughout the day
  • Suck on some "preggie pops" (you can get them at Babies R Us)
  • Drink lemonade
  • Eat watermelon (this almost worked for me)
  • Wear sea-bands (you can get them at a drugstore) during the day and take B-6 vitamins (consult your doctor before trying this)
  • Chew ginger gum
  • Eat small meals frequently throughout the day (some people say the only way to cure nausea is to feed it)

Best of luck with your pregnancy nausea, but if none of these suggestions work, feel free to just complain about it – you’re entitled to.

      you seem to be much disappointed but be assured things are there that work, if you ever heard about herbal tonics in order to relieve nausea of pregnancy????? I recommend "no to morning sickness tea" if nothing helps you to get over the agony. this herbal supplement is a miracle.
