Another Glorious morning… makes me SICK!!!
The first trimester of your pregnancy can be very exciting; finding out you’re pregnant, telling all your friends and family, and seeing the baby for the first time during your First Peek appointment. And then it happens, Morning Sickness, technically it's “any time sickness” but I digress. Morning sickness starts around 6 weeks of pregnancy and usually it's worst around your 9-10th week.
Most women find relief around their second trimester, around the 12-14th week of pregnancy, but some lucky women have it all throughout their pregnancy.
The most common symptoms include Nausea (even when eating your favorite foods), vomiting (the favorite food), fatigue (from growing the baby), headaches (just for fun), and dehydration (from, you know, the vomiting).
But we all just had to be like:
Don't worry we got you covered!
We have compiled a list of our favorite morning sickness relief remedies and products for you!
First and most importantly, get plenty of rest! You’re literally growing an eyeball today, probably, you deserve to put your feet up and relax.
Make sure to always keep crackers or dry cereal with you, this will help soothe the nausea attacks. One of our favorite quick candy snacks is the Preggie Pop drops. They come in different flavors and are so convenient to keep in your purse. Preggie Pops for Nausea Are Made With Essential Oils & Plant Botanicals, So Everything Is Safe For Both You & Baby.
Ginger is great for settling your stomach, whether, in tea, candy, or ale, it helps the digestive system with speeding stomach emptying, reducing nausea. Our favorite is the convenient Sea-Band Anti-Nausea Ginger Gum; This ginger gum works quickly & can be used whenever you feel nauseous.
I know it’s the last thing you want to do when you are feeling sick, but a calm 20 to 30-minute walk can produce enough endorphins to help with fatigue and nausea. Swimming is another gentle exercise, just remember to stay away from those tempting hot tubs.
We love drug-free options to help with morning sickness and one of our favorites is a nausea band, this is a light acupressure treatment band that applies pressure proven to relieve nausea and vomiting. Our favorite is the Frida Mom Anti-Nausea Band
Don’t forget to drink plenty of water not only for those amazing ultrasounds photos but to relieve nausea and prevent dehydration.
And remember to stay calm!
We hope this help! Come see us soon for your First Peek and Heartbeat appointment!
