Morning sickness may have begun before you even knew you were pregnant.
Sorry, but morning sickness can happen at anytime of the day or night.
Certain smells may trigger that nauseous feeling.
Hormones can do crazy things as baby develops within.
About three-quarters of pregnant women experience morning sickness during their first trimester.
Letting you know that this is the case may not necessarily help you feel better, but at least you know it is fairly par for the course during your first three months of pregnancy.
Your female family members and friends whom have personal experience of their own with this most putrid and not so pleasant draw back of pregnancy, which is only second to the actual pain of labor itself, may have their own personal remedy ideas. You just need to find the right one(s) for you.
No this is not to scare you, but pregnancy, which leads to the awesome gift of parenting, is a labor of love that will be with you for a lifetime.
Okay, one of the best ways to cope with not feeling so well is "positive thinking."
Yes, you have to use common sense and do the best you can to relieve the nauseousness. What works for some, may not work for others.
Soda Crackers are a good way to start. Keep them by the bed, in your purse and well stocked in your cupboards. Soda can naturally help settle the stomach. You can get salt less tops if you prefer.
Fresh air can help as your sense of smell gets heighten during pregnancy. Deep breaths can help.
Take a walk, light exercise, fresh air, get out and get sunshine, a new outlook on life.
Make sure you drink plenty of fluids. You do not want to get dehydrated, ever, pregnant or not. Hillary Clinton, had a major fall, hit her head, has blood clots, due to recent hydration from a flu virus.
Even taking a few sips here and there or eating ice chips will keep you hydrated.
Make sure you keep in touch with your doctor and let him or her know if you are having difficulties keeping things down.
Get plenty of rest. Exhaustion can make one nauseous. It can create headaches.
Do not take anything without consulting with your doctor.
You are important, and so is your baby.
