Since consistent vomitings can cause severe dehydration, it is important to replenish your body with nutrients by consuming certain nutrient and vitamin-rich foods and fluids.
These tips will help you get back to your normal diet once your appetite returns.
1. Increase Your Fluid Intake
Drink 6-8 glasses of water every day. Include herbal teas in your diet. For quick relief, mix apple cider vinegar and honey in water and drink it. This can help relieve the queasy sensation you may experience after vomiting.
2. Consume Protein-Rich Foods
Studies show that consuming protein-rich foods can suppress nausea. It can also help impart energy to your body.
3. Eat Soda Crackers Or Bars
Crackers are rich in starch, which helps absorb gastric acid and settle the uneasiness in your stomach. Carry some crackers in your bag, and snack on them whenever you feel nauseous.
4. Have Anything Made Of Ginger
The bioactive components can help reduce the symptoms associated with nausea. It can be consumed as a tea, or dried ginger candies, or ginger biscuits, etc.
As you already know, prevention is always better than cure. Listed below are a few tips to help you deal with vomiting during pregnancy.
- Have small snacks at regular intervals.
- Don’t lie down immediately after eating.
- Do not get up immediately on waking up. Sit for a few minutes and relax before getting out of the bed.
- Avoid foods that make you nauseous.
- Consume foods that are served at a cold or normal temperature. This is because hot foods have a stronger aroma and might induce vomiting.
- Steer clear of spicy, fried, and fatty foods as they irritate your digestive system and are hard to digest.
- Sip on fluids throughout the day to stay hydrated.
- Get some fresh air by taking a walk or opening the window.
- Get ample amounts of rest and take small naps at regular intervals.
- Try wearing an acupressure band on your wrist. Although this band is designed to help those who become seasick easily, it is also used by pregnant women to avoid vomiting and morning sickness.
Morning sickness is normal and does not have adverse effects on you or the baby. However, it can get frustrating. These remedies can help provide relief from nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. However, if you experience severe or prolonged bouts of vomiting, contact your doctor immediately. Also, make sure to cross-check with your doctor before trying out any of the above remedies.
