Lets make it easy & make you feel cosy 😉
To admit, I did not spit out a wee bit when Nilaa was in my womb ..I experienced no morning sickness at all ! Lucky me 😉
But still, for the sake of my readers, I did a deep exploration on this and collected information from various sources , pestled my friends to reminisce their spews, bugged my brother(DM Nephro) for some suggestions and here are the remedies to fight the morning sickness and the essential nutrients required to keep your body and baby healthy ..
Mostly morning sickness clutches tiredness and vomiting/nausea(Vomiting sensation). You might often jump to wrong conclusion that, “If you stop the inlet, you could control the outlet” .. Sorry dear, that would worsen the situation 🙁 Empty stomach invites more emission..
So, to avoid vomiting , let your tummy be neither full nor empty. Eat little but more frequently(every hour or two) .. Drink(more) between meals.. But, don’t drink while you eat as that might upset the digestion. Eat in the late night whenever u get up to goto loo and early morning before you step out of the bed (eating without brushing is less worse than your vomits).. Eating often is to maintain your blood glucose level as low level will cause nausea.
The smell of cooking too might induce you to throw up. If possible, seek some help for cooking. If you have no other choice, opt for fresh & dry fruits and other healthy foods that require no or less cooking. Whatever the case, please never turn to junk!
Forget about the short-lived spills and dream about the ever-loving gift that is wrapped in your womb just for you 🙂 Eat for the little one that depends only on you for its food 🙂
