2. Keep crackers or biscuits near your bed during the night. Plain and/or low sodium are best. If you wake up during the night eat one or two to keep your stomach busy digesting. Also snack on one after waking in the morning. It seems as though women with empty stomachs will experience more queasiness than women who have had something to eat.
3. Drink plenty of water. This is recommended for any person so it should be of utter importance during pregnancy. If it is difficult to get down extra water, eating fruits and vegetables with high water content will help significantly. Some include apples, oranges, melons, grapes, lettuce and tomatoes. Adding some lemon to water will also help.
4. Eat small meals every two to three hours instead of large meals.
5. Limit the intake of fried and greasy foods. Try to eat light. Less chance of feeling gassy afterward.
7. Try not to drink fluids during meals. Instead wait until after finishing food and in between meals.
8. Snack on sunflower seeds. They are very easy to digest and also have the added benefit of being packed full of folic acid. They are easy to fit in your pocket or purse.
10. This last one was a bother for me during my first pregnancy. Anything that had a strong smell or odor would make me extra nauseated. Apparently during pregnancy our sniffers are extra sensitive. So to help combat unpleasant smells keep either a small bottle of lemon extract or some other fresh and natural scent with you so that you are ready for battle.
