Health Tip: Soothing Morning Sickness

Tips for pregnancy-related nausea

(HealthDay News) - When you're pregnant, it's important to eat healthy, regular meals to provide plenty of nutrients for your developing baby. But morning sickness can make that a tough task.

Here are some suggestions when you're dealing with morning sickness, courtesy of the University of Michigan Health System:

  • Get enough rest.
  • First thing in the morning, eat a few pretzels, crackers or some dry cereal.
  • Eat small meals frequently throughout the day.
  • Stay away from greasy, fried or spicy foods.
  • Drink plenty of fluids throughout the day. Try to drink them between meals instead of just with them.
  • If you don't feel like you can eat anything and can't drink water, try some ice chips, fruit juice or fruit juice popsicles.
  • Steer clear of offensive odors.
