The struggles of motherhood do not only consist of growing a baby in a matter of nine months and giving birth to it but also includes a lot of discomfort and pain.
Indeed, mothers and those who are expecting will truly agree when I say that two of the major culprits that have ruined the joy of pregnancy are nausea and vomiting. They are categorized as part of the morning sickness symptoms. Most likely this discomfort happens in first trimester of pregnancy.
Here are a few tips to help you get through these tough times and reduce pregnancy complaints.
- Eat small, frequent meals instead of eating larger ones spanned throughout the day. One of the primary reasons why pregnant women vomit is that they have eaten too much.
- Avoid having an empty stomach. Conversely, some pregnant women vomit fluids and even gastric juices because there is no food in their tummies.
- Avoid odors and foods that make you feel nauseous.
- Take on ginger candies or drink ginger tea. You can make ginger tea by making use of grated or pounded fresh ginger and some hot water.
- Avoid getting up from bed too fast. Once you have awakened, stay still and sit up for a while before standing up.
- Have some plain salted crackers (or any bland food) by your bedside. You can munch on them in the morning when you wake up or during dawn when you feel hungry.
- Try using acupressure bands. This crude device has helped ward off sea sickness in sailors and seamen. While your being nauseous isn’t exactly the same with their condition, some pregnant women have had relief after using these bands.
Finally, always remember that prevention is better than cure. If you can stay away from things and keep off activities that make you nauseous, there’s a lesser chance of vomiting.
