5 Tips to Overcome Pregnancy Nausea
Giving birth one of life’s great miracles and just one of the many things that make women amazing. However, the road to giving birth to your future little one may seem like a bumpy one at times. Pregnancy nausea can be one of the top joy-stealers during pregnancy, especially the first trimester, but we have a few tips to help make this time as smooth and exciting as possible.
1. Keep a food journal.
Monitoring your eating, cravings and even times of sickness may help you find trigger foods that are causing nausea. By tracking your intake, you will also be able to make sure you are getting enough nutrients each day.
2. Eat several small, bland meals throughout the day
Preventing your stomach from being empty for too long will help keep nausea at bay. Focus on eating lots of plain foods, such as starches, fruits and veggies, cold sandwiches, and soups. Putting down the sriracha, ice cream, and fried foods will be better in the long run than giving into cravings.
3. Get plenty of sleep!
Now this is not an excuse to sleep in every morning of your pregnancy, but make sure to get quality sleep around the same times every night if possible. Whether you are working a full-time job during this time or are a stay-at-home mom, it is important to take the time to prioritize resting and listening to your body.
4. Drink up!
Set the coffee and soda aside (except for some ginger ale) and keep your body hydrated throughout the day. Hot tea is also a great form of nausea relief, especially peppermint or ginger varieties.
5. Make Babykixx a part of your daily routine! Just thinking about taking a prenatal vitamin can be nauseating, and taking one even more so! Babykixx provides consumers with all of the vitamins essential for pregnant women in puree form. This “vitamin” can be thrown in a smoothie or eaten as is, and is made with all-natural ingredients. This is a much tastier and nutrient-rich alternative to pills.
