We are now 24 weeks pregnant (check out our 16 week update and 20 week update) and thankfully the nausea is long gone! I had nausea early on in the pregnancy. From about week five through ten. Although it was not extreme I just felt….well blah! People kept telling me that I could feel this way up until somewhere between weeks 12 and 16. I just was not looking forward to that! So I started searching for some natural remedies for nausea in pregnancy.
I found three natural remedies for nausea in pregnancy that worked for me.
1) Sea-Band Wristbands – These are fabric wristbands that have a hard plastic knob on them. The knobs put constant pressure on a pressure point that relieves nausea. They did seem to help some. However, friends of mine that had more extreme nausea felt they worked better than what I noticed.
You can find these on Amazon or in the pharmacy department near the motion sickness medicine.
2)Gin Gins Ginger Candy– Ginger is suppose to be a good reliever of nausea. I could not talk myself into eating ginger root or crystallized ginger so I looked into some ginger candy. This brand seemed to be the best as far as the least amount of added stuff. It is a chew type so similar to taffy. Taste was not the best as I am not a huge fan of ginger, but it did really work! I put half the piece of candy under my tongue and let it melt.
3) Peppermint Oil– Good for nausea, indigestion and irritable bowl syndrome. I would just put a drop or two in warm water and sip on it. For me I had to continually sip it for it to continue to work.
There are the three natural remedies I used for Nausea in pregnancy. Thankfully, it did not last long for me. However, I know it can be quite miserable for some.
What other natural remedies for nausea have you heard of or used?
Until Next Time- Truly Love,
