Surviving Morning Sickness




In the Evening:

For dinner avoid spicy, greasy foods. Prepare things that are bland and do not have a strong odor. You may have to avoid cooking for the first trimester.

Most importantly, go to bed early! You need your rest to have the energy to get up early and do it all over again. If you happen to wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, try to eat something from your bedside stash!

Suggested Meals:

-Cold foods (sandwiches, raw vegetables, salad when properly prepared to prevent listeria)
-Bland foods (chicken soup, broth, plain baked potato)
-Plain vegetables or fruits
-Keep meals small, but eat as frequently as you need

Suggested Snacks to Eat:

-Lemons (eat them, suck on them, sniff them)
-Ginger (ginger ale soda, ginger tea, ginger jam on toast, ginger snaps)
-Peppermint tea
-Crackers
-Jell-O
-Flavored popsicles
-Pretzels
