Pregnancy is a beautiful experience, but the morning sickness that comes along with it? Not so good. Some women are blessed not to experience any morning sickness throughout pregnancy. Some suffer only in the first trimester whereas some suffer throughout 9 months of pregnancy.

Remedies For Morning Sickness in Pregnancy

Being a mother to my 19-month-old daughter, I still recollect my days of morning sickness. Gosh! I had it throughout my 9 months of pregnancy. Every time I ate, I would throw up. Coupled with gastritis, I used to feel sick every time I vomited. That is when I realised to read about some remedies to help ease morning sickness. Listed below are some tips that helped me.

1} Drink Herbal Teas

There are several herbal teas that are known to reduce morning sickness during pregnancy. A cup of ginger tea helps ease motion sickness. Every time you feel uneasy and get the feeling to throw up, sip in hot ginger tea. Other herbal teas made with peppermint, chamomile, and lemon balm are also helpful in reducing motion sickness. If you are suffering from heartburn, avoid consuming peppermint.

2} Chew fennel seeds

Fennel seeds are also considered to be an excellent remedy for morning sickness. Every time you feel nauseatic, chew on few fennel seeds.

3} Vitamin B6 supplements

Research suggests that pregnant women consuming 25mg of Vitamin B6 3 times a day reported lesser incidences of nausea and morning sickness. You can consult your gynac before deciding to take any pill.

4} Drink plenty of water

Water is an excellent remedy to ease morning sickness in pregnancy. Drink a glass of water every hour. This will keep your body hydrated and reduce the feeling of throwing up. Additionally, it will also keep your urine clean and flush out all the toxins from the body.

5} Lemon Juice

Lemon juice, being rich in Vitamin C, is a wonderful remedy to treat morning sickness. To reduce the feeling of nausea and vomiting, drink lemon juice. You can also sniff a lemon which helps reduce the uneasy sensation.

6} Eat as soon as you wake up

Surprising as this may sound, eating immediately after waking up does help reduce morning sickness. Having a small snack after waking up also keeps you and your baby healthy.

7} Avoid large meals

In pregnancy, break the routine of 3 large meals in the day. Instead, break them into smaller and frequent meals. Smaller meals are easier to digest and keep down in the stomach.

8} Avoid fried food

Although you may have cravings for junk food during pregnancy, make a cautious effort to avoid fatty and fried food. Fried and fatty foods are rich in trans fat and can aggravate nausea.

Planning for Pregnancy? Preconception Care that you should take

Most of us don’t realise that adequate care before conception can have a positive impact on the health of both the mother and baby. Our health as adults majorly depends on the way we were nourished in our mother’s womb. Hence, it is very important to seek information on proper health care before trying to conceive a baby. Preconception care helps you prepare mentally and physically for pregnancy and parenthood.

Objective of Preconception Care

The sole objective of preconception care is to prepare the body for hormonal changes, pregnancy, and birth. Taking care before conceiving improves your chances of getting pregnant, maintains a healthy pregnancy, supports healthy baby development, and helps in recovery after birth.

Nutritional supplements before conception

Your doctor will prescribe several nutritional supplements if you are planning to get pregnant. The universally recommended supplement is folic acid. Folic acid is required for healthy growth and development of the baby in the womb. Folic acid is known to reduce neural tube birth defects such as spina bifida. The recommended dosage of folic acid is about 500mg a day. It is advised to be taken before conception and until 3 months of pregnancy.

Other nutritional supplements can include zinc, iron, calcium, and a multi-vitamin. Apart from these nutritional supplements, your doctor will also advise you to eat a balanced diet and drink plenty of water.

Tests recommended before conception

If you are planning to get pregnant, it may be a good idea to visit your doctor. Your doctor will take down your medical history, family history, background, and prescribe certain tests and procedures to get you started. Some of the tests recommended are

1} Blood tests (full blood count and ferritin levels)

2} Tests to check immunity against rubella

3} Urine tests to check for protein, glucose, and infections

4} Blood pressure check

5} Dental check up

6} Pap smear if required

Simple tips to improve health before conception

2} Eat a healthy and well-balanced diet

3} Quit smoking and alcohol

4} Reduce caffeine intake

5} Take nutritional supplements regularly

6} Maintain a healthy weight and BMI

7} Exercise regularly

8} Avoid taking over the counter medications unless prescribed by the doctor

9} Avoid contacts with pesticides and chemicals

10} Avoid overheating activities like saunas and spas

11} Reduce stress and practice meditation techniques

12} Visit a healthcare practitioner before conception

Preconception care for men

Good health has the same fertility impact on both men and women. It is very important that men also take care of themselves before the couple try to conceive. Since men contribute half the genetic material to make a baby, preconception care is equally important for men. Since sperms take about 3 months to develop before being able to fertilise the egg, it is ideal that men start practising preconception care at least 3 to 6 months prior to conception.

Starting preconception care early and at the right time is advisable. Good preconception care will help you have a healthy pregnancy and baby. Soon after you get pregnant, continue to maintain the same healthy habits and see your doctor regularly for prenatal care.
