What to Eat When You’ve Got Morning Sickness

midnight snack 300x232 - What to Eat When You’ve Got Morning SicknessIf you’re suffering from morning sickness, you might be wondering what kind of food you can possibly stomach. Here are some nourishing and comforting foods to try:

Guacamole
Here’s a dip that’s packed with nutrients and is tasty yet mild enough for your upset stomach! Avocados are an excellent source of monounsaturated fats (also known as “good” fats) and omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for your heart. Guac also has nutrients like vitamins E and K, fiber, folate, iron, potassium, and magnesium.

Something with ginger

Ginger is recommended to pregnant women a lot because of its soothing effects on a queasy stomach. You can try ginger candies or ginger tea. If you’ve been chewing on ice to help with your nausea, just freeze some ginger tea in small ice trays. It’ll create icy lozenges that you can safely suck on. Or, drop your frozen lozenges into a glass of water or seltzer.

Crackers

Keep a stash of dry crackers (like Saltines) on your nightstand. Munch on them when you wake up to fight off morning sickness. Many pregnant women get up during the night to pee lots of times. If this sounds like you, eat a few crackers while you’re up. It’s also a good idea to snack on some before you go to bed, to kick queasiness to the curb.

Soup

When you’re feeling nauseous, soup is warm and soothing. Plus, it’s not so filling that it’ll complicate an upset stomach. Aim for a simple, mild soup like chicken noodle soup or even plain bone broth.

 

Make sure to tell your doctor if you’re experiencing severe morning sickness. If you vomit blood or something that looks like coffee grounds, throw up more than three times a day, or feel sick after your fourth month of pregnancy, call them right away!
