A practical guide to preventing morning sickness-nausea / vomiting
The most common symptom of morning sickness is nausea. Some people may feel nauseous right after they become pregnant.
Morning sickness generally lasts from about 5 to 16 weeks or about 2 to 3 months. Its peak seems to be during the 8-11 week period. That’s a long time.
Just one night of being sick and suffering from nausea can be draining, but to have it last for months is unimaginably painful.
First of all, please be careful of dehydration during nausea. If the nausea is so bad that you can’t even drink water, take measures such as putting ice cubes in your mouth.
You may become sensitive to various smells and even feel nauseated by things that you normally think smell good. There are many ways to prevent smells, such as wearing a mask, using a refreshing scent to protect yourself, or keeping mint tablets on hand.
If you are worried about losing your strength due to nausea and want to stop or reduce nausea even for a moment, try the anti-nausea effects of ginger.
Ginger ale or ginger tea may help to reduce nausea while rehydrating. Vitamin B6 also seems to have an anti-nausea effect. Foods that contain vitamin B6 include bananas, garlic, meat, and fish.
If you feel sick and just can’t eat, you can try jelly drinks to provide nutrition and water.
Nowadays, there are folic acid supplements available from various companies. It is safe to just use the supplements to efficiently consume the nutritional resources you need for the duration of your pregnancy.
It is very worrisome if the nausea is too strong and lasts for a long period of time, so do not force yourself to endure it, and have it taken care of by your obstetrician.
