Morning sickness, or feeling nauseous or the need to throw up, is almost inevitable in early pregnancy, especially if you have these risk factors

  • Having motion sickness.
  • Having migraines.
  • Pregnancy with more than one fetus.

Tips for managing morning sickness:

  • Stay away from odors or foods that trigger your morning sickness.
  • Keep snacking on carbohydrates during the day.
  • Drink ginger ale, or ginger tea because ginger has anti-emetic properties. If you can’t drink it, try ginger capsules or candies like gin-gins
  • Take vitamin B6 supplements (Pyridoxine).
  • Take your vitamins after you eat, or before you go to sleep.
  • Drink plenty of water and fluids to compensate for your fluid loss.
  • Always wash your mouth after throwing up.
  • If these tips didn’t work, try seeing a doctor.

Sometimes morning sickness becomes severe, where it results in the loss of a very large amount of fluid, in this case, it’s called hyperemesis gravidarum, and it’s more common with women who are pregnant with females. 

When should you see a doctor?

  • You urinate very infrequently, or your urine is very dark in color.
  • You throw up whenever you drink.
  • Standing up makes you dizzy.
  • Your heart beats very fast.
