Don’t get hungry
• In the morning, you might be able to prevent nausea by putting something in your stomach before you even get out of bed. Keep some crackers by your bed and have a few as soon as you wake up.
• Eat a number of small meals throughout the day. Small amounts of food are much easier to tolerate than a large meal. In fact, you might want to have a snack every hour or two, keeping the servings small. Peanut butter on apple slices, a few nuts, or a slice or two of cheese are all good choices.
• Take your prenatal vitamins with food to help them stay down. Even a saltine cracker or wheat thin can help.
• Avoid fried, fatty foods, which tend to cause and intensify the nausea. It’s not known why-perhaps because fatty foods are digested more slowly.
