When you are in your first trimester of pregnancy and your body is adjusting to the production of certain hormones, including estrogen and progesterone, you may experience nausea and even vomiting. It happens anytime of the day, but is usually worse in the morning.
Sensitivity to odors during pregnancy can make many smells bothersome. Try to avoid food odors, as well as cigarette smoke, which may contribute to your queasiness.
Don’t let your stomach get completely empty, eat small meals throughout the day, so your blood sugar level doesn’t get low and make your morning sickness worse.
Eat a diet that is relatively low in fat and try to stay away from any greasy or fried foods, which can upset your stomach. You may try to calm your nausea by smelling or eating lemon. Many women will drink lemon water or even suck on a wedge of lemon for relief.
Another remedy other women praise is the use of wrist bands. They provide pressure to the underside of your wrist, on a pressure point, which may be helpful in reducing nausea.
