Mothers-to-be must watch: 10 Tips to Overcome Nausea and Vomiting during Pregnancy

Nausea and discomfort in early pregnancy are often accompanied by vomiting.

The American Academy of Obstetrics and Gynecology pointed out that about 50% ~ 90% of women will suffer from nausea and vomiting in early pregnancy, and 5% of women will suffer from such symptoms throughout pregnancy.

Pregnant women’s early pregnancy reaction is often mistaken for morning sickness. In fact, nausea and vomiting can occur at any time.

The nausea symptoms of most women will disappear in the late stage of early pregnancy, and the nausea symptoms of different pregnant women will also vary from mild to severe.

Unfortunately, scientific research has not yet found the exact cause of nausea and vomiting in pregnant women. At present, the increase of blood-HCG and estrogen during pregnancy is believed to be related to this symptom.

So how should pregnant women deal with nausea and vomiting? Here are some tips.

Diet precautions

  1. Eat less and eat more, and be sure to eat breakfast. You can eat some soda biscuits before getting up in the morning.

  2. Prepare some snacks around to avoid fasting for a long time.

  3. You can try ginger products, such as ginger juice beverages, ginger candy and ginger tea.

  4. Don’t eat spicy and greasy food.

Precautions in Life

  1. Avoid contact with irritants. If the smell of food causes nausea, avoid contact with this smell as much as possible.

  2. Don’t lie down after eating.

  3. Pay attention to rest.

Some measures that may be effective

  1. Anti-nausea wristbands can be used. This wristband may relieve nausea by exerting pressure on the wrist.

  2. Increase the intake of vitamin B6, which has been proved to help relieve nausea.

  3. Change the time of taking vitamins before delivery, either in the morning, at noon or at night. In addition, if traditional large tablets cause nausea, consider taking gum vitamins.

If these over-the-counter methods cannot relieve nausea and vomiting, consult a doctor. Many prescription drugs are safe and effective for relieving nausea during pregnancy.

Can nausea and vomiting of pregnant women lead to abortion or damage the fetus?

The answer is no, but be careful to see if you are dehydrated. If you lose weight, urinate less or cannot eat for more than one day, which means that you may be dehydrated, you should go to the hospital in time.
