Along with my prenatal vitamin, my doctor recommended that I take a B6 supplement. Even though the prenatal vitamin already contains some B6, he said that the dose to ease nausea for pregnant women should be much higher. I'll tell ya what, he was totally right!

I've found it helpful to never let me stomach be completely empty. I try to eat small, frequent meals throughout the day. I think it has really helped!

My doctor told me to eat a high carbohydrate diet. At first I was worried that the carbs wouldn't be giving me the nutrients I needed, but he explained that carbohydrates don't only include foods such as pretzels, crackers, and white bread. It also includes healthy things like bananas, whole grain cereal, tofu, oatmeal, whole grain rice, beans and more!
Also, the morning sickness should ease after your first trimester.
Hope this helps!

It makes me sick thinking back on it, but when I was pregnant I just stayed away from anything hot that had a strong aroma. Usually a strong aroma triggered my nausea so I decided to just avoid it as much as possible. Also, I kept crackers on my night stand so that i could eat a few in the morning before the nausea started.

I also took a B6 supplement during both of my pregnancies. I also drank a lot of gingerale (they make diet gingerale now!) My mother always told me that ginger helps an upset stomach (and of course mother know best!).
