How can I lower the affects of morning sickness or fatigue?

I'm not throwing up but i feel nauseated after eating. I'm getting about 10 hours of sleep but am still exhausted all day.

  • You can use ginger to help with the nausea. Ginger snap cookies, ginger ale, ginger candy. It really does help. As for the fatigue...I don't know how to help you there. Unfortunately it is a major part of being pregnant. Once you're in your second trimester it does let up some, but then in your last trimester it gets really bad again because you are carrying an almost full term baby. Just try and get as much rest as you can before the baby is born.

  • try eating smaller meals and not laying down for at least an hour after you eat, also try to take a nap during the day, or try doing yoga to boost your energy.

  • Half a unisom and i think its a B6 in the morning and at night... I've never done that, but I don't have bad nausea but a friend of mine said it worked wonders.
