As I mentioned in my last post about morning sickness, I had it bad. I was sick all day, every day, for about four months. I never got around to trying Preggie Pops and Drops (although now I wish I had since I’ve been reading all of the positive reviews!).
Here are a few things that I tried that seemed to help alleviate the nausea a little bit:
1. Saltines – They are bland, but filling.
2. Small Meals – Eating too much or too little resulted in more nausea. It was best to strive for a semi-full stomach.
3. Sucking on Something – I bought mints in a huge bag from Costco and the sucking rhythm seemed to help. Perhaps that is part of the power of the Preggie Drops and Pops.
4. Sleep – Resting was my one relief from sickness.
I also tried ginger (which helped) – you can get ginger snaps, ginger pills, or ginger candies. Trader Joes has a good selection.
What tips do you have to help other mamas and mamas-to-be out there who are experiencing morning sickness?
