Natural Ways to Manage Morning Sickness

After suffering through morning sickness with my first 3 pregnancies, I knew when I got pregnant with my 4th that I would have to do something different.

How could I take care of 3 kids and my daily responsibilities while feeling horrible all day? I was determined to figure out a way to thrive and feel my best during the first trimester and take care of everything on my plate too.

I searched google and my favorite natural health websites until I came up with a plan of action. What I share with you below is what worked for me to relieve morning sickness naturally.

I am going to tell you, I was honestly surprised at how well these tips worked. I went from barely able to get up in the morning and struggling with nausea all day to feeling energetic and relatively normal (considering that I was growing a tiny human). The best part – I was able to keep up with my 3 kids for the most part, rather than being miserable all the time.

If you are suffering with morning sickness consider a few of the tips listed below.

Morning Sickness Tip #1 – Investigate gut health

Did you know that the health of your gut can impact not only your overall health but that of your growing baby too? I didn’t know anything about this until my 4th pregnancy, but there is a growing base of research showing the link between a mother’s gut health and her baby and how that can impact future health.

Adding in foods that support a healthy gut during pregnancy is beneficial for both you and baby.  Fermented foods like yogurt, saurkraut, kefir, kombucha and kimchi can help to boost your gut flora. Taking a prenatal vitamin that contain probiotics like this one is also a good way to boost your gut health.

I personally found sipping ginger flavored kombucha amazing for settling my stomach when I had morning sickness!

Tips for drinking kombucha during pregnancy:

Also I found yogurt and sauerkraut foods that I could eat during the 1st trimester. I would eat the plain, full -fat yogurt topped with fresh berries, chia, hemp and flax seeds in the morning and in the evening before going to bed. Eat about ¼ cup of sauerkraut with lunch and dinner.

Are you eating any of these?? I find boosting gut flora stimulates your appetite, or at least relieves the morning sickness for periods, so that you can eat, even if it is just small amounts.


Morning Sickness Tip #2 – Get an Eating Strategy

While you may have no appetite, you have to eat a little something to sustain yourself. And slowly you will be able to eat more. This is a good time to start thinking about what to eat during pregnancy and when to eat.

Figuring out what to eat during pregnancy was one of my biggest challenges the first few times. Once you learn a few basic principles of nourishing your pregnant body it becomes much easier though.

Try this Eating Strategy to Relieve Morning Sickness Naturally:

  • Eat a handful of nuts (almonds) in the morning before you get out of bed.
  • Then try to get (force) yourself to eat breakfast. My favorites that helped me overcome my morning (all the time!) sickness :
    • Oatmeal + fresh ginger + cinnamon + a mashed banana + a big spoonful (or 2) of coconut oil
    • Gluten free bagel + lots of (full fat) cream cheese + smoked salmon (lox) + either sliced avocado or sliced tomato
    • Fried egg + either white rice or quinoa + chopped tomato drizzled with olive oil, sea salt and pepper

The key here is to get carbs + fats + protein in the morning. Once you get that first meal down its easier the rest of the day.

Then make sure you carry a snack for mid morning and mid afternoon –

Morning Sickness Tip #3 – Magnesium

Magnesium plays a large role in how we feel during pregnancy. I highly recommend taking Epsom salt baths. It’s relaxing, actually lowers your blood pressure, and also is a good source of magnesium. This helped me tremendously. If you are unable to eat, try adding Epsom salt to your bath for a few days and see if it helps. If you aren’t a bath person there are lotions like this one that you can use.


 

Morning Sickness Tip #4 – Ginger

Ginger is your best friend in early pregnancy. Start your day with ginger tea with fresh lemon juice and honey. It soothes the stomach and reduces inflammation. Eat fresh ginger in baked goods, in oatmeal, mixed in soups and dinner recipes. Ginger tummy drops like these are also really great for settling your stomach and the nausea associated with morning sickness.

Morning Sickness Tip #5 – Drink herbal tea

Herbal tea not only can help settle your stomach, but it can also provide much needed hydration and nourishment. Sip pregnancy tea like this one I love or nettle tea throughout the 1st trimester to help relieve morning sickness naturally.

Morning Sickness Tip #6- Try to stay positive –

I know that may sound silly, but its really helps. An affirmation I love for early pregnancy is “This may be hard, but I can do it!” Reassure yourself constantly. This is just a phase and it will pass. You are strong enough and can do this whole pregnancy, motherhood thing.
