How To Deal With Morning Sickness During Early Pregnancy

Morning sickness (also called nausea in the morning) is the most common pregnancy symptom, affecting over 70% of women in their first trimester of pregnancy (1). It typically begins at around the 6th week of pregnancy and continues until the 12th week or even later (2). The term morning sickness implies that this nausea and vomiting occurs solely in the morning, but this isn’t true. In fact, many women with morning sickness feel nauseous all day long, not just during morning hours; in some cases, feeling sick can last into the second trimester and even third trimester of pregnancy.

Keep track of your nausea

When we become nauseous during pregnancy, it can be difficult to determine whether it’s morning sickness, food poisoning, or an impending miscarriage. The best way to keep track of your nausea is to write down a description of each episode and note when it occurred. By tracking your nausea, you’ll soon learn if there are any patterns and what works to relieve your symptoms.

Track how long it lasts

If you’re just getting started with pregnancy, one of your first questions may be: How long will morning sickness last? It is difficult to predict how long morning sickness will occur and when it should disappear. However, you can try to combat nausea with ginger and other natural remedies. Eating small meals often may also help reduce symptoms for some women. If your symptoms persist for more than two weeks or become severe, contact your health care provider.\

Make adjustments to your diet

As you move into your second trimester, you’ll likely want to curb morning sickness. But don’t just eat whatever you feel like eating! Instead, try these tips to beat morning sickness during early pregnancy: – Eat high-protein meals throughout your day. These will help keep your blood sugar steady and curb cravings,

Get outside and get some fresh air

It’s a little-known fact that fresh air (or really any new smells) can be just as nauseating as things you’re already sick of. Go for a walk, breathe in some clean oxygen, and remind yourself that morning sickness is only temporary—and in many cases, completely normal.

Try anti-nausea medication

Even though most medications may not be safe to take during pregnancy, it’s important to consult with your doctor before starting a medication routine. If nausea is keeping you from eating or enjoying food, there are some medications that can help relieve it. Talk to your OBGYN about anti-nausea options.

Have a change of scenery

Getting out of your usual environment can help relieve morning sickness. If you’re at home, pack a bag and take a drive to an unfamiliar location; if you’re at work, go out for a walk in nature or visit another floor or department in your office building. Do whatever you can to step outside of your comfort zone for a little while. When you do return home or get back to work, see if you notice any difference in how you feel.

Talk to others going through similar situations

If you’re experiencing morning sickness, chances are you’re not alone. Although many people assume that nausea is only a problem during early pregnancy, symptoms can occur at any point during your pregnancy and with varying degrees of severity. The first step to dealing with morning sickness is talking to others who are going through it. Find out from them what treatments and lifestyle changes have worked for them.

Maintain a positive attitude

For many women, morning sickness is a symptom of early pregnancy. While doctors may have varying opinions about whether it’s safe to work through vomiting and nausea, one thing most agree on is that having a positive attitude toward your pregnancy is beneficial. If you find yourself struggling with morning sickness, try to remember that it will eventually pass—and you’ll soon be enjoying some incredible baby-growing developments with your little one!
