Combat morning sickness with our expert tips and tricks! Say goodbye to nausea and discomfort and start enjoying your pregnancy today.

Hey you, congratulations on your pregnancy! You’re growing a tiny human inside of you, how cool is that? But, with all the hormonal changes going on in your body, you may be experiencing a not-so-fun symptom: morning sickness. Don’t let the name fool you though, it can happen at any time of day.

Hormonal influence

Blame it on the hormones, specifically the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) produced by the placenta. But let’s not forget about the other hormones like estrogen and progesterone, they can also contribute to this pesky symptom. Plus, stress, fatigue, and certain foods or smells can add to the mix.

Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Not all women experience morning sickness and the severity of symptoms varies. But, if you’re feeling really rough, reach out to your healthcare provider for advice and treatment options.

5 Top Tips to Combat Morning Sickness

  • Snack frequently and nap when you feel tired
  • Drink fluids 1/2 hour before or after a meal, but not with meals
  • Eat soda crackers 15 minutes before getting up in the morning
  • Eat whatever you feel like eating, whenever you feel you can
  • Avoid warm places (feeling hot adds to nausea)

Top Ten Foods When Morning Sickness Strikes

Applesauce: Tasty and easy to digest, a few spoons of applesauce might be all you can manage, but will keep you well hydrated. Cook some up and keep it in the fridge or freeze in ice cube trays to snack on when the urge strikes.

Bananas: This highly nutritious fruit is the bomb and should be included throughout pregnancy because they are rich in potassium, folate and vitamin B6. You could even add some to your applesauce for a bit of variety. 

Broth: An excellent source of sodium and potassium to combat dehydration and easy to make and store. Use lots of bones and vegetables to add variety and increase the overall nutritional value.

Brown Rice: This is the perfect food if you need to stick to bland food. Pump up the nutritional value by adding a tablespoon of coconut oil. Brown rice has B vitamins and plenty of fibre to give you that full feeling.

Ginger: Fresh organic ginger can be grated into boiling water and sipped on throughout the day. It increases motility in the intestinal tract so it can combat that all day nausea feeling. Consider a squeeze of lemon and squirt of honey if you need some sweetness. Ginger is best consumed organic.

Ice chips and water: Ice may well be all you can handle. The cool crunch can feel great when you are hungry and thirsty but just cannot seem to bring your self to eat any food. Make ice chips from your ginger/lemon and honey tea and snack away through the day.

Lemons: Packed with vitamin C, lemons are cool and refreshing, especially when you are feeling queasy. Nibble on slices, suck on segments, add them to your tea or pile them up in cool water with some fresh mint.

Oatmeal: A hearty bowl offers you protein, vitamins and minerals and can settle a funny tummy. Great with a swirl of honey and some sliced banana.

Popcorn: Popcorn is a whole grain with a good amount of fibre and easy to nibble on throughout the day. Sprinkle generously with salt if you need to replace sodium from vomiting.

Watermelon: This fruit is packed with B vitamins, lycopene, vitamin C, A and fibre. Rich in antioxidants and B vitamins, which help with your energy levels! You could freeze chunks to suck on or make a watermelon slushy to sip on slowly
