With both of my pregnancies, the most dreadful part was honestly dealing with the nausea. Especially once the realization set in that morning sickness was not limited to just the first couple of hours of the day, I was open to just about anything to relieve that sick feeling. But when it comes to expecting, there are definitely things a pregnant woman should never do to treat nausea – regardless of how off-putting it is for you.
If you’re sick of being sick, there are plenty of ways to safely help with nausea, but you’ll want to avoid things like taking medications that aren’t approved by your OB-GYN or eating foods that could make you feel even worse. The hardest part about feeling like you could hurl is that it’s truly different for every mom-to-be. Although certain foods may cause it in some moms, something as uncontrollable as genetics might trigger it for others.
The truth is, if you’re expecting, you can probably expect some type of nausea at any point in your pregnancy. With a new bundle of joy on the way, you might already start realizing you won’t always be in control anymore — especially in the months to come. But if you’re looking for ways to alleviate that icky, unsettled feeling, these are some things you should 100 percent avoid doing at all costs.
