Tips for Managing Morning Sickness
Morning sickness and nausea are two components of pregnancy that many women struggle with. The intensity often varies from virtually none of throwing up almost daily the entire pregnancy. Typically occurring during the first trimester, the exact reason behind why women experience nausea during pregnancy is still up for debate.
For some, pregnancy-related nausea occurs first thing in the morning. Pregnant women may experience nausea at any time during the day and even on and off all day long. Roughly 70% of pregnant women will experience some form of pregnancy-related nausea, over 50% of women will throw up during pregnancy.
Hyperemesis gravidarum is a severe form of morning sickness. Women suffering from this condition may actually lose weight during their pregnancy. Many women end up needing to get regular IV fluids to help with hydration. Some mothers will even end up spending a portion of their pregnancy in the hospital as nausea gets so intense. Fortunately, this condition is extremely rare (less than 2% of pregnancies involved), it’s good to be aware of in case a woman experiences intense nausea.
Ways to Relieve Morning Sickness
There are a number of folk remedies and things which may help pregnancy-related nausea. These are suggested by various practitioners, grandmas, and holistic docs. As always, run things by your practitioner before trying anything out.
- Adequate protein- Many midwives and birth practitioners believe morning sickness is related to not eating enough protein
- Eat more often throughout the day- some suggest every 2-3 hours to keep blood sugar and hormone levels balanced
- Prenatal Vitamins
- Healthy Fats
- Avoiding sugar, fried and processed foods
- Avoiding strong scents
- Dried papaya
- Raw carrot slices
TriLight offers a popular herbal blend called Morning Soothe. This is a blend of herbs commonly used to help with nausea and vomiting. It is popular among moms-to-be as well as individuals prone to nausea.
The flavor is delicious and the remedy is formulated to act quickly. Most women do find they need to continue taking it every 2-hours. We also suggest keeping it next to your bedside and taking it ½ an hour before getting out of bed to help soothe the stomach first thing in the morning.
The 2oz bottle fits perfectly in your purse so that you can dose a little bit anytime you’re feeling queasy. The larger bottle can live on the counter or nightstand to help with nausea at home. Morning Soothe is also found in our new Pregnancy Essentials Kit, 6 of our most popular pregnancy formulas together in one bundle!
Check out this Morning Soothe review by Sarah J.
“I have HG and have been terribly, debilitatingly ill for all 11 pregnancies, to the point of total depletion of body, mind and soul. I ordered morning soothe after finding out about baby #12. So far, I’ve only thrown up once and am 7 wks today. This is totally amazing. I still fighting extreme fatigue and 24 hour nausea, but I am keeping food, drinks and other vitamins down. This has never happened before!”
And this review from Molly M.
