What can I do for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy?

The following suggestions may be useful in relieving nausea and vomiting: * Remember, "any calorie is a good calorie" so eat what stays down for you. * These foods may not be well tolerated: Greasy or fried foods, as they take longer to leave the stomach or very sweet foods or spicy hot foods or foods with strong odors. * Eat smaller, more frequent meals, that is six small meals and snacks. * Drink fluids between meals, not with meals. * Eat foods that are at room temperature or cooler. Hot foods may trigger nausea. * Drink beverages chilled or cold. Decaffeinated soda is often well tolerated. Don't opt for diet soda, you need the calories right now. * Eat slowly and rest after meals. It is best to rest sitting in an upright position for about one hour after eating. * Dry toast, soda crackers, or dry pre-sweetened cereals may relieve periods of nausea. * Keep track of when you feel nausea and what causes it. * If continued vomiting occurs, do not eat or drink anything until the vomiting has stopped. As you feel better, try some small amounts of clear liquids (broth, Jello, apple, grape, or cranberry juice, and/or popsicles.) * Tart or salty foods such as lemons or pickles may help decrease nausea. * Avoid mixing hot and cold foods at a meal, as it may stimulate nausea. * Ask your doctor about medicine to control nausea. * Avoid eating in a room that is stuffy, too warm, or has cooking smells/odors that may disagree with you. * Wear loose fitting clothing. * To avoid the sight/smell of foods, eat meals out or have others bring prepared food to you. * These are signs that you need to call your doctor: Unable to keep anything down for more than two days or fainting or vomiting blood or rib pain or Jaundice (skin is greenish or yellow) or your weight drops more than five pounds within a week.
