You may not be able to completely eliminate pregnancy nausea, but there are some things you can do to alleviate the symptoms. You might also notice that there are patterns to your nausea, such as always occurring after you eat a certain food, or at a specific time of day. By recognizing these patterns, you can treat pregnancy nausea effectively. Here are some tried and true tricks for keeping pregnancy nausea away:

Snack away sickness: Before you go to bed, eat a high protein or high carb snack. Not only do they prevent blood sugar swings, they also soak up stomach acid. Keep a packet of peanuts or crackers in your purse.

Nibble away at meals: Rather than eat three large meals a day, eat five small ones. Chew your food carefully and slowly, and avoid fatty or spicy foods. Stay away from smells or tastes that you know increase your nausea.

Sleep it off: The more sleep you get, the better. Aim for 8 hours a night, and go to bed around the same time each night. Take as many naps as you need to, and try to sleep when you're feeling sick. Although sleep may not always be a cure for nausea, it will provide you temporary relief.

Time your vitamins: Taking your vitamin in the morning, or on an empty stomach, can cause nausea or vomiting. Take your prenatal vitamin with your lunch or dinner, and look for liquid prenatal vitamins if you can't stomach tablets or capsules.

Acupressure to the rescue: Many women swear by acupressure bands, which are bracelets worn on the wrist that touch pressure points. Acupressure treatments may also be effective against pregnancy nausea.

Peppermint and lemon: Both peppermint and lemon are known for their anti-nausea properties. Such on a lemon slice, or carry lemon flavoured lollipops when you go out. Peppermint tea can soothe your stomach and relax you after a busy day.

Ginger for your health: Ginger is not only good for you, it can also fight nausea. Drink ginger tea, ginger ale, or snack on gingersnaps when you feel ill.

It can be frustrating when you have pregnancy nausea, and nothing seems to help. Don't get discouraged, and keep trying until you find the remedy that works for you. There are hundreds of pregnancy nausea tips and tricks out there, from eating ice cold vegetables to sticking your head out the window for a breath of fresh air.
