- Stay Hydrated. If water won’t stay down, try frozen juice popsicles - you can add your Seedlyfe Blend for an extra dose of nutrients. Lori’s clients also swear by sucking on Lemon Ice Cubes throughout the day. Just mix one quart water, the juice of 2-4 lemons, and Stevia to taste in a bowl, pour into an ice-cube tray, and enjoy after frozen.
- Take B Vitamins & Zinc. Try zinc supplements, as well as taking B6 every 8 hours, which can aid nausea and vomiting. Also, try a food-based B-complex vitamin and iron supplement, which are generally non constipating and safe to take during your entire pregnancy. Brewer’s yeast is high in B vitamins, which prevent nausea, and is good sprinkled on cereal or rice. As always, talk to your doctor before you begin your new vitamin routine.
- Drink Tea. Raspberry leaf, peppermint, and anise varieties are all helpful and pregnancy-safe.
- Load Up On Ginger. Fresh ginger can be cut and grated into plain hot water or tea. You can also take ginger in capsule form, drink ginger ale or ginger brew (a healthier choice), or eat ginger chews (candy).
- Exercise. If you can stomach it, mild exercise and walking can relieve nausea-triggering hormonal activity.
- Fresh Air. Step outside and suck it in.
- Foods To Try. Eat a protein-rich snack before bed, such as natural cheese or yogurt. Keep a box of crackers near your bed and eat a few before getting up in the morning. Likewise, keep apple juice by your bed and sip it through the night to keep your blood sugar stable.
Eat Often. Consume 5-6 meals a day, so you are eating every few hours. Make sure they include some carbs and protein to maintain your blood sugar level.
Foods To Avoid. Anything spicy, fried, fatty, or greasy, as well as caffeine and artificial sweeteners.
Slow Your Roll. In the morning, get out of bed slowly and avoid sudden movements.
Acupuncture. These treatments are often really helpful for some morning sickness sufferers.
Avoid Strong Odors. Skip the perfume, scented candles, etc., and ask your partner to do the same.
