Being pregnant is one of the most beautiful periods of the life of any woman, but still there are some side effects that you have to deal with. There are the heartburns, frequent urination, constipation, bloating, and we shouldn’t forget about morning sickness either (not that we could). So, how to make it better?
It is natural that this is the last thing that you would think about when you are experiencing morning
sickness. There are some kinds of foods that you should have in order to make yourself feel better, such as crackers. There are also some people who say that you should consume the foods that you usually do when you have the flu: rice, dry toast and apple sauce.
Although not even water feels good, it is very important to be well hydrated in this period. In order not to make your condition worse, you shouldn’t be eating and drinking in the same time.
Prenatal vitamins and when to take them
In some cases women could get worse because of their prenatal vitamins. One thing you could do is to take them before going to bed. In case this isn’t possible you should talk to your doctor to switch to another vitamin.
This spice has been used for a long period of time to take care of an upset stomach. This can be taken as tea or candy.
No rushed movements
When you have to get up or down you should make sure that you don’t move too fast. In case you make a sudden movement, it could upset your stomach and make your stomach get worse.
Pregnant women are very sensitive when it comes to odors. It is possible that the smells that didn’t bother you before are likely to bother you now. Observe the odors that bother you and make sure to avoid them.
This remedy seems to be ancient, but there are some women who get better if they sense the smell of freshly cut lemons. You could slice a lemon up, put it in a plastic bag and carry it with you.
Although this seems weird, in some cases the potato chips actually help with the morning sickness. The scientific explanation for this is that the combination of grease and salt helps the upset stomach. Since this one of the remedies is less than healthy, you shouldn’t be using it too often, only as a last resort in case nothing else seems to be working.
As you can see, there is a lot you could do to make yourself feel better. Naturally there are some over the counter medications as well, but these might harm the baby, and it is always better to opt for the natural and home remedies than the drugs and medications that have been created artificially. Try to maintain your health.
