Women often worry about possible effects on their baby. Research shows that healthy women have enough reserves to supply the growing fetus, even if they eat little in the first three months. Another study showed that the presence of nausea and vomiting rather than their absence was more likely associated with a favourable outcome of the pregnancy.
What To Do
Diet: Eat small frequent meals high in protein or complex carbohydrates. Avoid sugar or artificial sweeteners. Carry raw almonds, rice cakes or whole wheat crackers to keep blood sugar constant.
Powdered Ginger Root: Three or four capsules a day followed with water, first thing in the morning. Repeat as necessary during the day.
Slippery Elm: Soothing and strengthening herb for the stomach. It possesses as much nutrition as oatmeal yet so gentle it can be retained by the most sensitive stomachs. Take in powdered form in capsules or make into a gruel by mixing it with honey and hot water.
Vitamin-B: 50 to 100mg a day, is a very effective anti-nauseant. It should be taken as part of a mega Vitamin-B-50 capsule containing the rest of the B-vitamins.
Blue Green Algae: Such as spirulina, is very high in protein and other nutrients and easy to digest. Mixed with mashed bananas or other fruit.
Acupuncture: Treatments by an experienced practitioner can eliminate nausea.
For severe nausea and vomiting; If your nausea does not respond to any of the above measures, or is very severe, ask your doctor about diclectin (doxylamine 10mg and Vitamin-B-6 10mg), which has been proven to be safe during pregnancy.
