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 just wanted to write and say how thankful I am for your website. I have two boys and was desperate for a girl. I found your website and decided to follow your rules. It took 5 months for me to fall pregnant but it was worth the wait. At my 20 week scan I was told they were 85% sure I was having a girl but couldn't be 100%. I wouldn't believe it until I saw it for myself and you were right - I gave birth to a girl. My sons are delighted with their new baby sister. I do not plan on having anymore children but have already passed your website onto two of my friends. Once again I would like to say thank you very much for the advice. I couldn't have done it without you!! Many Thanks!

    Dear Fortune Baby, On 12/1/08 I found your site my daughter was 11 weeks pregnant and I paid to find out the gender of her baby. When I keyed the information much to my excitement you predicted she was expecting a baby girl! I went to several other sites and they all predicted she was expecting a boy. My husband and everybody laughed at me and told me I was crazy. I went out and bought pink everything. Kristen had her ultrasound to day at 18 weeks pregnant and you were right she is having a girl! My son announced 3 weeks ago that he and his fiance' are expecting a baby 3 weeks after my daughter so I did the test for them and you predict that they are having a boy! They are scheduled for their ultrasound next month so I will let you know what the results are. I believe and everyone else should try your site as well. Thank you so much! A very excited Grandma!

    JUST TO SAY YOU WERE 100% ACCURATE SAYING I WAS HAVING A BOY. HE WAS BORN 27TH MARCH HEALTHY. THANKS A LOT WILL USE YOUR CALENDER IN THE FUTURE TO HOPEFULLY CONCEIVE A LITTLE GIRL. CHEERS.
