There are many options for morning sickness remedies as most women get some form of morning sickness with pregnancy. Sometimes it can be from an empty stomach, certain smells or you may be one of the unfortunate ones that stay nauseous no matter what time of day it is.
What is Morning Sickness?
Morning sickness is a common symptom of pregnancy. It generally occurs during the first 4 months and is usually nausea accompanied by the occasional vomiting. Even though it is named morning sickness, it can actually cause discomfort at any part of the day.
Morning Sickness Remedies
Pregnancy nausea relief comes in many forms and varying degrees.
Peppermint works great for nausea. So hopefully you like the smell or taste of peppermint because if you want to beat nausea it is going to become your best friend. Peppermint for morning sickness comes in all forms. Herbal teas, essential oils, candies, and lotions. All options can help with nausea, you just have to decide what works best for you.
Pregnancy pop drops are the newest thing on the market for first trimester nausea. They are safe for pregnant mamas and babies. They aren’t actual drops though, but a hard candy that you suck on throughout the day. I honestly thought they were a drop you put under your tongue like all the CBD oils we have now.
Yep, another hard candy to suck on. You can get these with peppermint, but if you want to get away from the peppermint these actually use ginger to help with nausea. They do mask the ginger taste with other flavors and don’t seem expensive to try.
Acupressure is the act of putting pressure on a specific point to release the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms. You get similar results when you get a massage. Granted, it’s not full-body or feels as great as a massage does, but it does help with nausea when placed on the correct points.
Aromatherapy is the smelling or breathing of natural plant extracts to promote the body’s health and well-being. Aromatherapy uses essential oils to enhance the body both physically and emotionally. Lavender, peppermint, chamomile, and ginger are a few essential oils that ease stomach upset and help with pregnancy nausea relief.
Diclegis ended up being my prescription for nausea relief. My OBGYN gave me a trial sample at the office and those 7 days without nausea were unbelievable. If nothing else seems to work for you, I would definitely ask your Doctor about Diclegis.
There are many different remedies for morning sickness. You just have to try and see what works for you and baby. These options are all safe for both Mom and baby during pregnancy. How is your first trimester nausea going? Is there something that worked for you that didn’t work the second time you got pregnant? Let’s hear how everything is going in the comments.
