Snacks That Fight Morning Sickness
Morning sickness can be the bane of your pregnancy. Here are some snacks that can help you eat healthy while pregnant.
Morning, mid-day, or even all day sickness in pregnancy is something many women experience, especially during the early months. Here are five things that can help. Keep dry crackers like saltines on your night table. Eat them when you wake up, go to bed, or when you're up in the night to quilt queasiness. Just don't forget the napkins. Eat something every few hours. Something is simple as low-fat yoghurt, cheese and crackers, or even pretzels dipped in peanut butter can satisfy and satiate you, and have liquids in between meals instead of with them. Ginger or peppermint tea may also be helpful in managing morning sickness. And if you crave high-calorie, low-nutrient comfort food, just have it. Keep the portions small, and when you feel well again, be sure to eat right. And finally, play it safe. Call your doctor if you lose at least 2 pounds, vomit blood, or vomit a material that looks like coffee grounds. Also call if you throw up more than 3 times a day, or unable to keep food or liquid down, or feel sick after your fourth month of pregnancy. For more on pregnancy nutrition, check out parents.com.
