nine ways to keep nausea away during pregnancy March 16, 2007

Posted by guinever in pregnancy.
  1. Try to eat whenever you feel queasy; it doesn’t have to be a lot–just a couple grapes, a cracker or slice of cheese
  2. Stay hydrated. Sip on beverages all day long. But sometimes even drinking plain water can make a pregnant woman gag. Add some freshly squeezed lemon. (real lemon works too)
  3. Drink some mint tea first thing in the morning and whenever you need it
  4. Eat ginger snaps or other food with ginger in it
  5. Wear sea wrist bands available at most drug stores; they’re also called travel bands or acupressure bands
  6. Always have food on hand–keep a baggie of oyster crackers, cheese sticks, or a protein bar in your purse
  7. Toothpaste making you gag? brush your teeth with mouthwash instead
  8. Take papaya digestive enzymes (or eat the real fruit either dried or fresh)
  9. Don’t lie down until your food has a chance to digest
