(HealthDayNews) -- Are you pregnant and plagued by morning sickness?

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these suggestions for relieving that queasy feeling:

  • Eat small meals through the day so that you're never too full or too hungry.
  • Avoid rich, fatty foods.
  • Avoid foods with smells that bother you.
  • Eat more carbohydrates.
  • Eat saltine crackers and other bland foods when you feel nauseous.
  • Some women are bothered by the iron in pre-natal vitamins. If you think this may be causing your morning sickness, speak to your doctor about changing your vitamins.
  • Try Jell-O, popsicles, chicken broth, ginger ale, herbal teas, and pretzels.
