Ginger worked wonders for me as well. Ginger tea, Reeds extra ginger beer, and ginger chews... Also Mint tea is a great way to relieve morning(or all the time! ) sickness. I carried mint tea bags with me anytime I was out and about... Just take a good strong sniff of the tea bag anytime something makes you feel sick!


Ginger for Pregnancy Nausea

550 mg Ginger Root capsules have staved off my continual bouts with nausea and vomiting during my current pregnancy. I'm 22 weeks along and I still take one every morning & freely throughout the day at the first sign of queasiness. It works really fast -- within 5-10 minutes usually.

I wish I'd known about this remedy during my first pregnancy. It was so bad I couldn't stand to look at water without vomiting all the time. Ginger Beer helped during that pregnancy (its a stronger brew than ginger ale). But sometimes I was too sick to drink and hold it down. I wish I'd known about these ginger capsules and/or fresh ginger then. Hope this helps someone.

Also, I wonder whether ginger is the reason I've only gained like 6 lbs so far? I snack all day long rather than eating at normal mealtimes & I'm also still nursing my 1 year old. Between these three factors, I haven't gained nearly as much weight as I'd gained with the last pregnancy at this point. Anyway, cheers to GINGER!!

Please, note that I speak from experience. Nothing works better than eating several small yet healthy meals and taking ginger supplements or eating ginger snaps for alleviating the nausea that comes with the early stages of pregnancy. Usually by your fourth month you will no longer need to bother with this as the nausea becomes less over powering. Note that the olfactory senses in a pregnant woman are keenly acute and it would also be of great assistance to bring a handkerchief lightly dowsed with baby powder or some other light fragerance that is easily tolerated by the expecting mother for times when an unpleasant odor sneaks up on you.
