Finding out that you were pregnant was such an exciting experience. First there was the late period, and then the self-test followed by your doctor's confirmation, and then Mother Nature's verification with the first signs of morning sickness. Like most new mothers to be, even the start of morning sickness was exciting, sharing the news with friends who had already been there and basking in the glow of their knowing smiles. You had become an official member of the club, and felt pretty good about it. Now, weeks later, not so much. The initial thrill wears off quickly, and morning sickness becomes an annoying burden from which mothers-to-be wish to be freed. For most women, the experience begins around the fourth week with feelings of nausea soon after rising in the morning. The nausea does not always lead to vomiting, but the potential is imminent. Knowing that the symptoms usually last no longer than the end of the first trimester, offers little comfort, and remedies to provide temporary symptomatic relief are sought after. Some of the traditional practices and home remedies used with success over the centuries are given below. Many women have found relief by nipping the nausea in the bud early in the morning. When you awaken in the morning, don't bounce out of bed. Sit up slowly and breathe deeply. Let your stomach adapt to the vertical position. Absorb any excess stomach acid by eating a few Saltine type crackers that you keep on the night table. If you feel thirsty, take small sips of water instead of large gulps. Change your eating schedule. Forget about the traditional three meals a day. During this period of morning sickness your stomach is in delicate condition and will function better when it's digesting small amounts of food instead of the digestive demands of a full-scale meal. Eat high protein snacks throughout the day. Eggs, beans, and nuts are usually well tolerated. Avoid eating any spicy foods, which will undoubtedly annoy a sensitive stomach. They can also cause heartburn. Even the smells of some of these foods can bring on nausea. Avoid being in the kitchen with strong cooking odors. Try to do most of your cooking using the microwave, where possible, to reduce the creation of odors. When you do feel like cooking, do so in a well ventilated kitchen. When you feel the onset of even mild nausea, drink some ginger ale or ginger tea. Ginger is great for settling an upset stomach. Some mothers speak of success using ginger capsules, but this is something you may wish to speak with your doctor about. Vitamin B6, taken daily, is also identified by experienced mothers to provide general reduction of the severity of nausea. Finally, get a lot of sleep. Your body is doing more work that it does at any other time in your life, and it needs more rest than usual. Take naps whenever possible, and try to get a good night's sleep every night.


There are many other home remedies that have been tried over the years with varying levels of success. Those given above are recognized as good common sense, and are known to provide varying degrees of relief from morning sickness symptoms. If your symptoms are more severe than what might be normally expected, check with your physician who may be able to provide you with more powerful remedies.
