Waking up feeling like you’re going to throw up? Not a fun way to start your day!
Here are some ways to combat morning sickness:
Take a whiff
Take a whiff of a lemon, rosemary, or mint. Due to heightened levels of estrogen during pregnancy, you are more sensitive to smells which can lead to nausea. Getting a more pleasant scent running through those nostrils can really help!
Nausea can be a result of dehydration. Drink plenty of water upon waking up and keep it going throughout the day.
Eat salty, bland carbohydrates
Eat salty, bland carbohydrates like crackers, cereal, or pretzels. The salty snack will help settle your stomach.
Eat small meals
Eat small meals throughout your day to make sure your stomach is never running on empty.
Get enough sleep
Morning sickness is known to be worse when you are overtired.
