Morning Sickness

Morning sickness can be quite difficult for a pregnant woman to deal with. It involves nausea, vomiting, and aversions to foods and even smells. Most women report that it goes away after the first trimester of pregnancy, but some women experience it throughout their whole nine months of pregnancy. For some women, this pregnancy symptom is so bad that they are not able to even function in their daily lives properly.

On the bright side, most women can do certain things to help cope with their morning sickness. Here are some ways that you can help with any nausea, vomiting or aversions that you may have during pregnancy.

Drink Plenty of Water

If you are vomiting, then that means that you are losing water and the last thing that you want to happen when you are pregnant is to get dehydrated. Dehydration can cause contractions as well as pre-term labor. It can also cause dizziness and fainting which can injure the baby if you fall. Be sure to drink plenty of water through out the day to help avoid dehydration. Water also helps to flush out your system which may help you feel better.

Ginger

Ginger is a known food that will help to settle your stomach. Sip on some ginger-ale or ginger tea or look for candies that have ginger in them. There are candies and lollipops that are made especially for pregnant women that contain ginger in them to help get rid of nausea.

Eat What You Want

If you want pizza for breakfast, then go ahead and eat it. Eating something that you have a craving for or that you know that you can hold down is a wise choice. Many women say that the only things that they could hold down or didn't have an aversion to were foods with a lot of carbohydrates such as potatoes, pasta, crackers, chips, and bread. This may be because it helps to make your stomach feel fuller and provides you with energy that your body needs during pregnancy. If you force yourself to eat something that you don't want, you have more of a chance of your sickness to get worse or last longer. Instead, eat what you want, within moderation, and you may just feel a whole lot better.

Motion Sickness Bands

You have probably seen these bands in pharmacies, but may have never looked twice at them if you don't suffer from motion sickness. These bands have been known to help pregnant women dealing with nausea and vomiting as well. These bands work to help control nausea in people. Most of bands deal with acupuncture and pressure points to help relieve nausea.

Anti-Nausea Medications

If you find that you are really suffering from morning sickness and it is not going away and is actually affecting the growth of your baby, you may want to ask your doctor for an anti-nausea medication. The doctor may prescribe a medication like Zofran, which is not harmful to the baby to help control the nausea and sickness. Don't take any over the counter medications without contacting your doctor first.

    Fortune Baby Gender Predictor Reviews


    Thousands of happy moms around the world successfully used Fortunebaby gender prediction test. We are delighted to share their gender prediction reviews about their experience with Fortune Baby.

    I took your gender prediction test in July 2009, and it came up with GIRL. I was a bit skeptical, and took a urine based test that clearly showed BOY. They will not tell you the gender on ultrasounds in our town, so I had to wait until November to find out, and it turns out I should have just gone on Fortune Baby's results after all--we had a girl! Thanks!

    Just wanted to tell you as so many others have, that we just had our sonogram done at 25 weeks and it said it was a girl, just as predicted. Everyone said it was a boy because that's all his family has ever had and I was carrying in all the classic boy myths. You were right though, a little princess is on her way!

    I just wanted to let you know that you were right again! I did a test on my cousin and you guys predicted that she was having a boy she went for her sonogram and sure enough she is. I also did a test for myself but I won't know until the end of next month but I will keep you guys posted. Thanks!!!!!! YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!!!!!!!!!

    Just wanted to send an e-mail - to let you know that your gender predictors were correct. I still have a hard time believing it's true that I am having a girl after having three beautiful blonde haired boys ages 4, 2, and 1. When my prediction last month from Fortune Baby said I was having a girl - I was hopeful but thought in the back of my mind that this baby will probably be a boy as well. That would have been fine since all anyone can really ask for is a healthy child. Although, I have always longed for a daughter and knew this pregnancy would be my last since I just turned 37. So - I found out this week at my 18 week ultrasound that I am in fact having a baby girl. I am giddy and totally over the moon. This is the best birthday present I could ever ask for. Thank you so much Fortune Baby! I feel so completely blessed and happy!
