- Posted on: Sep 15 2019
Whether this is your first pregnancy or your fifth pregnancy, nothing can knock your pregnancy pants off quite like morning sickness. Accompanied by fatigue and nausea, morning sickness can be quite debilitating. To help you get through your first trimester until the nausea and morning sickness subsides, we have a few things that will hopefully make you feel a little bit better.
Go On Walks
Sometimes getting up and moving first thing in the morning can help you reduce some of your morning sickness symptoms. Plus, a little bit of fresh air is also good for your mental state and will hopefully help keep you feeling encouraged. Try going on walks every morning to get your blood circulating, and your heart rate up a little bit. Even if you only make it around the block once or twice, a little bit of walking can go a long way.
Eating regular, small snacks is a great way to help ease your morning sickness symptoms. Try keeping something like crackers with you at all times and eat every hour or so. The more consistent you are with snacking, the easier it will be to help with nausea.
Take Vitamin B6
Studies have shown that an easy and effective way of treating nausea is with Vitamin B6. With no adverse side effects, Vitamin B6 can help you curb your nausea, and you can take 25mg about three times a day, which is an added benefit.
Try Ginger Chews
Ginger is a natural way to get rid of nausea and it’s healthy too. If you don’t have any food aversions to ginger, get some ginger chews, and try eating those when you feel like your nausea is extra high.
Morning sickness can be hard on you both physically and emotionally. If you want to learn a little bit more about how you can naturally get rid of some of your nausea and vomiting, contact our Phoenix office and callus at 602-892-6923.
