In 3.5 hrs I’m hosting a brunch. I did most of the prep work yesterday, Darling Husband is helping, and the house is clean, but I’m feeling super queasy and gross.
I have some ginger in the fridge-should i freeze it for a bit and then eat some?
WTH? I am 10w3d pregnant and nausea is hitting me now??

@Evie19: candied ginger or ginger ale are good options, so are nibbling on saltines (though graham crackers did it for me).

Granny smith apples are good for nausea as well.
Acupressure-The p6 point or “inner gate”: 2 or 3 finger widths down from the top crease in your wrist (at the base of your palm) there is a groove between two large tendons. Gently apply pressure to this area when you feel nauseas. Or Top and bottom of wrist: Take your thumb and index finger and firmly press on the points (where the p6 is) on both sides of your write. Hold for 10-30 seconds, or up to 5 minutes, and breathe deeply
Slice a lemon- the smell of the citrus calms both you and your nausea. Take deep breathes close to the lemon as you slice it.
Peppermint oil- apply a few drops to a cotton swab and rub on your gums. Or drink peppermint tea
Suck on a frozen lemon or lime slice.

Mint tea helped me tons, also saltines, almonds and water/sweet tea.

@Evie19: My friend froze ginger and said it worked really well. I usually got nauseous if I had an empty tummy. Maybe try crackers. I’ve heard of it hitting late alright.

Thank you SO much everyone! great tips. I actually have granny smith apples in the house, and I’m going to freeze some lemon slices too.
I really appreciate it. 🙂

When I get my IBS nausea I have ginger tea made by boiling up diced ginger then drinking the liquid. Tastes AWFUL but my nausea is gone within 15 minutes.
Ive had a few pregnant friends try that and they have the same effect! So maybe that will help you too?

Take a quick walk. Exercise helped me sooooo much first tri!

Do you have any peppermint or even peppermint tea? In a bind, that can help. Also, if you have a pharmacy near you, you could pop out and get some B6. That will definitely take the edge off.

Ginger biscuits are also good!

Peppermints! I would keep them in my pockets. They really take the edge off.

Ginger and/or vitamin B6!
