Every pregnancy is different, and some love being pregnant while others may want to skip that part altogether. Not everyone's pregnancy is a smooth one. Those that didn't like their pregnancy that much may have had a lot of issues with being uncomfortable, or may have had a lot of morning sickness. To help make your pregnancy a smooth one, read on for some tips.
Crackers can help stave off nausea symptoms. They can give you the feeling of being full, and the crackers are bland enough that they won't make your nausea worse. Saltines are the best choice, but you can try other types as well. Stick with bland crackers, opt for choices without flavor or seasoning. Keep them at your desk while you're at work, or in your car just in case you get nauseous when you aren't at home. Morning sickness can hit you no matter the time of day, not just in the morning, so be prepared.
If you are getting sick from morning sickness, you can dehydrate if you aren't drinking enough water. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and to keep up your energy. Water is going to help with other things as well, such as cleaning the body of toxins, so drink at least 8 - 10 glasses per day. If you don't like the taste of water, you can add fresh fruit to it for extra flavor.
Change Your Toothpaste
Brushing your teeth is going to get difficult if you have morning sickness, so brush slowly and change your toothpaste to a bland one without any flavors added. You can make your own using baking soda and water to create a paste. Brush slowly, even if it takes you twice as long to brush your teeth.
Use The Fan
Fans throughout the home can get rid of odors that may cause you to get nauseous. Use the fan when cooking, showering, cleaning, and when someone has used the bathroom to get rid of all odors. Try not to cook anything that has too much odor that may cause you to feel nauseous. Chances are you won't want to eat anything that has a lot of flavor, either.
Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but for some it doesn't feel quite so beautiful. Ease nausea by following the tips above. For other tips, speak with a doctor at your local obstetric clinic to ease your pregnancy symptoms and make you more comfortable.
