Cyndi (Asheville, Nc, Usa) on 06/29/2011: Hi, I am 10 weeks pregnant and have been making a 'morning tonic' with molasses, organic apple cider vinegar and honey. I got the okay from my midwife who said that women have been giving birth for 1000s of years and have been taking ACV, molasses and honey for 1000s of years. It is safe. I feel like I have so much more energy making my morning tonic, too.
Here's my tonic:
In a cup of warm water I add:
1 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar (I use _____'s)
2 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp molasses
I don't know if this is helping, but so far I have had NO morning sickness, very little dizziness, and feel much more energetic througout the day.
I also make a tea of raspberry leaves, lemon balm and plantain leaf in the evening. The raspberry leaves are said to help inhibit morning sickness, and help your body to create a strong amniotic sac to carry the baby to term; it also has a lot of calcium - a critical need during pregnancy. The lemon balm is soothing. The plantain leaf contains lots of B vitamins and is considered "poor man's spinach" - haha, I pick it out of my yard!
Hope that helps!
