Feeling Nauseous and Morning Sickness 

“So, what do you do if you’re nauseous, when you’re pregnant, it’s incredibly common. First. Trimester’s worst. That can happen. Other times in your pregnancy. There’s a lot of stuff that you can do to make yourself less likely to have nausea problems in pregnancy. Start with water. Dehydration is one of the number one causes of nausea and pregnancy. And you need to drink enough water for your urine. To be clear. If you’re not drinking enough water, your urine will have color OB orange, yellow. And so that’s the way you check at home for you. That could be a glass of water every hour. You’re awake for other people. It may be less but drink until your urine is clear. One little trick is when you get up at night to go to the bathroom, keep a cup by the sink and drink. Then that’s the longest time you go without drinking. 

You can be really dehydrated when you wake up in the morning and more nauseous. Second thing is drink no sugar. When you get sugar into your, into your stomach, when you’re pregnant, it makes your blood sugar shoot really high. Your insulin overreacts, and you bought them out an hour and a half later. So drinking things that have sugar in them or eating things that have sugar in them can really make you more nauseous. The bad news is that that also means carbohydrates, carbohydrates, and most of the prepared foods that we eat, have their carbohydrates or sugars denatured from any fiber. As soon as they hit your stomach, you’ll be your blood sugar shoots up and then bottoms out. So the bottom line is when your blood sugar is bouncing around all day, you’re going to be nauseous. When it goes slow, or have a wave of fatigue or maybe want to eat something else. 

Changing Your Eating Habits

And, what you need to do is not eat those foods. You want to eat lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables, eggs. And those are the things that are going to keep you from feeling awful. So you should drink no sugar. So that’s no soda, no sweet tea, no Gatorade, and no fruit juice. Fruit juice seems healthy. Doesn’t it? But it’s not because all the sugars in the fructose in that juice have been denatured from the, from the fiber. You need to drink water. You can add a little MEO squirt to it. If you want to for a little flavor to get it down. But fruit juices are your enemy. So smoothies are not a bad way to go. Look when you’re trying to get protein in. 

Can I consume Whey Powder when Pregnant?

If you can’t do meat and you can’t do eggs and you can’t do dairy, get some whey powder, whey powder is in the muscle-building part of the grocery store. And it is basically, milk powder and milk protein. That’s been, you know, put into a powder form so that you can use it easily. You can throw that into a smoothie when you’re making smoothies and you’re putting whole foods in like whole fruits, berries, and other vegetables and things. And then you add weight protein to that. That’s healthy and that’s okay. That’s not the same as squeezing all of the juice out of a fruit that’s healthy. And, and you can actually get great protein and get something down that way. The other thing is you’re not going to make it four or five hours between meals. You’re going to need to have a snack mid-morning. And mid-afternoon what are good ideas for snacks? Things like Greek yogurt or drinkable, Greek yogurt, or maybe an Apple and cheese, V8, and tomato juices are the one juice that you drink while you’re pregnant. 

So that’s what you need to do to avoid nausea, lots of water, make sure that you’re eating proteins. You’re not eating carbs. You’re not drinking sugars. And that’s going to go a long way to making you feel better. Last little trick constipation. If you’re constipated, when your lower intestinal tract is an emptying your upper intestinal tract, doesn’t like to let the food move through either. So you want to make sure if you have trouble with constipation and that, that may mean that you’re just not going regularly. It doesn’t mean that you’re all completely backed up, but if you’re having gas and feeling bloated and nauseous, especially at the end of the day, you probably have constipation and pregnancy. So go ahead and start on Samira lax and again, water, water, water. And if you do those things really control what you eat, cut out the sugars and carbs and take care of the constipation. You are going to be a new woman.”
