Spices that soothe
• Drink flat, room-temperature ginger ale to settle your stomach. Although no one knows why (there’s not enough ginger in commercial ginger ale to have an effect), it works for many nauseated moms-to-be. Don’t drink ginger ale with fizz, though. The bubbles promote the production of more stomach acid-just what you don’t need.
• Chew on anise or fennel seeds, which are known to soothe upset stomachs.
