Morning Sickness & Food

Nausea, sometimes called morning sickness, is a common symptom of pregnancy. Morning sickness is most prevalent in the 1st trimester, likely due to fluctuations in hormones. It can return later in pregnancy, but nausea at that stage is probably caused by the growing baby pressing against mom's stomach.

To fight morning sickness, try to:

  • Eat five to six small, frequent snacks or mini-meals throughout the day.

  • Eat slowly.

  • Avoid foods with smells that bother you.

  • Drink plenty of fluids.

  • Avoid fatty and spicy foods.

  • Take your prenatal supplement with food.

  • Eat a small snack, such as crackers, before getting out of bed in the morning.

Soothing snacks for morning sickness

To ease stomach discomfort, try:

  • Cold foods such as smoothies and yogurt

  • Cool, bubbly drinks such as fruit-flavored carbonated water

  • Easy-to-digest foods such as crackers, toast, and rice

  • Fruit such as bananas and applesauce

  • Ginger ale with real ginger, ginger tea with fresh grated ginger, or ginger candies

What to do when morning sickness persists

Usually, morning sickness is mild to moderate and is not harmful to you or your baby. However, if nausea or vomiting persists or becomes severe, speak with your doctor.
