The Top 10 Ways to Reduce Nausea and Vomiting in Early Pregnancy

The early weeks and months of pregnancy are undeniably exciting, but they can also be quite stressful in a number of different ways. For one thing, more than half of all women experience at least some degree of nausea or vomiting during the first trimester.

This troubling problem is thought to result from quickly changing hormone levels, and (contrary to popular belief) you can find yourself feeling unwell at time of the day. Since ‘morning sickness’ is not really limited to morning, it can inhibit your ability to go to work, spend time with your loved ones or even enjoy your regular hobbies.

However, there are some smart and effective things you can do to ease the nausea you feel during early pregnancy. Keep the following ten tips in mind.

1. Try cutting out hot meals

When food is hot, the steam rising from it will make the scent stronger and more noticeable. While this can create anticipation and enhance enjoyment under normal circumstances, if you are pregnant women who is feeling delicate and queasy then the intense scent of a hot meal can send you running straight to the bathroom.

Cold meals do not have the same strong smell, so it may be easier to stomach them.

2. Be mindful of the amount of water you drink

Finally, it is always a good idea to drink approximately ten servings of water on a daily basis, and having a little water when you feel queasy will sometimes help to settle your stomach.

However, make sure you drink water slowly to avoid worsening your nausea.
