Morning sickness, the hangover without the fun the night beforehand! Morning sickness is a misleading term as it can occur anytime of the day and last all day every day with symptoms ranging from mild nausea through to vomiting. You will not know if you will suffer from morning sickness until you get the symptoms.

 Some ways to alleviate morning sickness:

  • Eat small amounts every one or two hours to limit the build-up of stomach acid
  • Aim for small and easy to digest meals
  • Stick to bland, starchy foods, such as toast or biscuits
  • Place a biscuit or bland snack next to your bedside table to eat before you get out of bed
  • Avoid rich, fatty or spicy foods
  • Avoid acid drinks, such as fruit juices and just drink lots of water and herbal teas
  • Wear acupressure wrist bands (can be found in pharmacies to prevent motion sickness). These can be worn all the time
  • Take ginger, which is a known remedy for nausea, and can be found in tablet form and have a higher concentration of ginger than biscuits or tea
  • Rest as much as possible
  • Consult a doctor who can give you further advise

 Hope this helps in alleviating some of the dreaded morning sickness symptoms! Remember, its all for a good cause!
