How to deal with nausea during pregnancy

Nausea tends to affect many women during pregnancy and can interrupt their regular routine. Thankfully, there are lots of ways this can be overcome.

The reasons for nausea

Lots of women wonder what causes nausea. The reason you will encounter nausea when pregnant is because hormonal shifts are occurring in the body during this time. This is particularly noticeable when you first wake up, leading to morning nausea or sickness affecting you. This is cerntainly not the most enjoyable way to begin the day, so it is a good idea to opt to prevent if from affecting you too much. This can be achieved by altering your eating and drinking habits so that the body is less likely to respond by making you feel this way.

Food and drink

Drinking a lot of water and ensuring that the body is properly hydrated is one way to approach this issue. Drink plain water, herbal tea and juice. This is also beneficial for your digestion and skin tone. When eating, focus on bland foods that provide the body with energy. Avoid rich options such as dairy products or anything which is smoked. Dry toast is an ideal way to begin the day. If you are looking for a natural substance that you can consume to reduce feelings of nausea, then ginger is good for this. Either have the root in some hot water as you would drink tea or have ginger tablets which are absorbed into your system and reduce the chance that you will be affected by nausea and vomiting.

Other ideas to try

The urge to be sick can be set off by sudden movements that you make. Take your time not to jerk yourself out of bed in the morning and be careful throughout the day. When you have to eat do this a little and often as your stomach will not respond favourably to large meals, especially if they are richly flavoured. Light exercise such as walking around outside is not only good for your general health, but getting fresh air will be good for both you and the baby, and will provide you with some nausea relief. Make sure that you take long, deep breaths to get as much fresh air as possible.
