Tips For Morning Sickness In First Trimester

Pregnancy: Tips for Overcoming Morning Sickness

How awful is morning sickness? After just a couple of weeks I was feeling dreadful and I am not out of the woods yet. There are times when I sit on the sofa and literally don’t know what to do with myself. It is a bit like a terrible hangover- so queasy and nothing but sleep will make you better. I have been through it all before, my pregnancy with LJ was just as bad and I felt like it would never end.

6 Tips For Easing Morning Sickness

Over my 3 pregnancies I have picked up a few tips, so thought I would share them with you in case you are feeling like death too!

Love Hearts

I am telling you now, get yourself down to Asda and get 5 for £1- they are your best friend. Sucking on the chalky sweets really does help and you have a happy message each time too 🙂

Chewing gum

Anything minty really helps- even cleaning my teeth is a welcomed part of my day. I am not normally a fan of mint but am loving it right now.

Anti-Sickness Bands

I don’t think I could get through the day without my travel bands. I can remember the first time I put them on last time- within 5 minutes I felt almost human!

Fresh air

All I want to do is curl up on the sofa and hide from the world but unfortunately having a school age child means I have to go back and forth from school twice a day. I have found actually that this is when I feel my best. Fresh air definitely helps.

Loose Clothing

Urgh, there is nothing worse than a tight waistband when you feel sick. I am already in my maternity leggings and they are so comfy!

Sleep

The more tired I am the worse I feel. LJ woke up 8 times the other night and the following day I felt dreadful. Get your rest and it will help ease the nausea (easier said than done I know).

So, there are a few tips I have been trying over the last few weeks. I still feel rough but 100 times better than I would be without these tips. I cannot wait for these weeks to be behind me although I am well aware that there are more struggles to come. Heartburn anyone?

Have you got any tips for beating morning sickness?

    I used to drink ginger which I bought from a health foods shop and also ginger build hits helped me! My sickness was always at 2pm and I was teaching so the last 2 hours was the toughest!

      Urgh afternoons teaching are tough anyway without feeling rough. I have never drunk ginger but I have had ginger biscuits and they did help although they gave me heartburn haha! x

    Ginger really helped me too! Ginger snaps, ginger chews, ginger tea…. And saltine crackers.
