Helpful Hints For Hyperemesis (Morning Sickness)

November 24th, 2009 No Comments » In Pregnancy, by admin
If you’re feeling nauseous or vomiting due to early pregnancy, there are several things that you can try.

Avoid feeling hungry. Small frequent meals, including eating crackers as soon as you wake up can help those waves of nausea from coming. Another thing to try is acupressure wrist bands. They are usually found in maternity stores or even travel stores since they can also be used to prevent sea-sickness. Ginger has also been shown to prevent or reduce nausea. Sipping on ginger ale, taking ginger capsules or even ginger snaps may be helpful. Another remedy that you can try is vitamin B6. They come in tablet form, and taking one 25-50mg tablet up to twice per day may relieve hyperemesis. Caution with vitamin B6-avoid taking more than 100mg per day as it may be harmful to the baby at high doses. “Preggy pops” are available in most stores and may be helpful. If you are actually vomiting, Emetrol is a syrup that can be used to stop vomiting. Be sure to replenish fluids to avoid dehydration. If the hyperemesis is not resolving, or you have any questions, be sure to call the office, as there are prescription medications available to help.
