How To Prevent Morning Sickness During Pregnancy

Morning sickness affects about 70% of pregnant women.

Fortunately for me, I didn’t really get it with my first pregnancy. However, with my second, I started to feel sort of yucky in the mornings, but I quickly did something about it that not only made the feeling go away.

I have shared this tip with many of the women who do my Fit Mom-To-Be Workouts and the ones I coach online when they tell me they have morning sickness.  And every single one has felt better.  

It’s awesome!

Most people say that you can’t prevent or make the morning sickness go away because it happens for hormonal reasons.  

And while hormonal reasons are partly the cause, this can also be fixed.

So many of the pregnant women that do my Fit Mom-To-Be Workouts tell me that they’ve applied this tip and they immediately feel better… so I’m super excited for you to try it and if you feel better, you have to let me know.

There are so many benefits to exercise and healthy eating during pregnancy.  

Did you know that everything you do during pregnancy affects your baby?

Pregnancy Exercise Benefits

Before I let you in on this secret, I want to discuss pregnancy nutrition and exercising. 

I know you probably a little frustrated like most pregnant women, because your OB hasn’t educated you much on Pregnancy Nutrition.

Aside from giving you a list of foods you should NOT eat, and weighing you in every week, that is pretty much it.  And it’s insane because what you eat doesn’t just affect YOU!   It affects the baby as well.

It’s very easy to say, “you have to slow down with your weight gain”, but not give you any tools or resources to help you.

But you have to control what you eat and not use this pregnancy as an excuse to “Eat For 2”

I mean you don’t by any means have to diet. I certainly didn’t and I did allow myself some splurges, such as eating a bagel once a week which I normally don’t when I’m not pregnant, I usually stick to oatmeal which I love.  But you just have to make GOOD CHOICES.  

You should want to anyways because everything you are eating now is affecting your little baby.  So, make good choices girlfriend.

Exercising during pregnancy also helps you speed and ease delivery.  

Isn’t that the best news you’ve gotten all day?  My labor was less than 4 hours and I pushed for about 10 minutes.  Thank goodness for those workouts.

Eating clean and exercising moderately and safely, you will be able to lose weight super-fast postpartum. I did!

I did My Fit Mom-To-Be Workouts from the moment I found out I was pregnant until the day before I went into labor and I felt amazing, only gained 20lbs and lost 22lbs within 3 weeks of having my baby.  

  Check out Amber said about my Pregnancy Fit-Mom Workouts.

Ok, ready for this pregnancy life changing tip?  LOL

It’s super simple and easy and you are going to be like “are you serious, that’s it”?  

But it works!

So, I find that most women get sick in the morning because that is the longest, we spend without eating because we are sleeping.  Basically, the stomach is empty which causes nausea and sickness.

Remember that your body is working so hard to create a life support system for your baby that it is pulling from YOUR NUTRIENTS first for that….. depleting YOU of everything.

That is why we feel so tired, especially at the beginning.

 Ugh, I remember feeling like a truck ran over my body every single day for like 3 weeks.  I woke up tired and went to sleep tired.  

But can you imagine how hard your body is working?

I read in a book once that a pregnant woman’s body is working 4,000 times more than an non-pregnant woman rock climbing.  Is that not insane?

No wonder we feel tired, fatigued and sick.

So…… The solution….

EAT!  

Eat in between the hours you are sleeping.

I know that you are waking up a gazillion times to pee in the middle of the night.  

So I am going to give you a recipe that you are going to make and have on your night table and a few of those times you get up to pee, you are going to take a few bites.  

You don’t have to eat a whole lot; you just need a few bites.

I remember taking 2 bites of my OATMEAL PANCAKE probably around 10pm and around 1-2am.  And when I woke up at 4am to go to work, I didn’t feel sick anymore.  It was like magic.  I swear!

You have to make sure you eat something that is healthy, not high in sugar or fat and that has some protein and healthy carbs in it.  And that is what this pancake is.

I know it’s hard to get protein in when pregnant, especially if you’re feeling sick.

Protein is incredibly important for you baby.

Protein helps the development and growth of your baby’s tissues and organs. It is also in charge of taking blood supply to the fetus.

So, though its sometimes really hard to get protein in because of aversions, nausea or just having cravings for carbs only…

Now it’s more important than ever.

Which is why it is a huge life saver to have mPower, a PROTEIN POWDER that is specifically formulated for pregnancy.

Doctors are now not only approving it as safe but also recommending it because they understand how important it is for pregnant women to get enough protein in.

mPower is not only the BEST TASTING protein powder out there with no after taste, doesn’t clump and is so silky smooth.

But it also counts as your prenatal and has FOLATE and probiotics.

It’s not just a protein powder, it is the best ALL-IN-ONE protein supplement for pregnant women.

I know it’s tough to eat so much chicken and turkey and fish and eggs… especially during pregnancy.

But being able to have a delicious protein shake or protein smoothie that you can even add so many more healthy and nutritious ingredients is literally gonna be a life changer for you.

It will also help you crush your cravings so you can eat healthier and gain less excess weight.

You are gonna love mPower legit, the YUMMIEST protein powder you have ever tried.

Back to pancake making…  I would make about 5 at a time and leave them in a Ziploc bag in the fridge and every night before going to bed, I would heat it up and cut it into 4 pieces and put it on a plate on my night table.

Seriously, many a nights I remember munching on those pancakes with my eyes closed.

But let me tell you what……  After I started doing this, I never felt sick again.

Still wondering about mPower? Check out what these mamas had to say.

I was able to make it through my Morning Fit  Mom-To-Be Workouts without feeling sick…. as I did them before starting work.

I can’t tell you enough all the benefits of exercise during pregnancy and of a good nutrition.  And not only for you but for your baby as well.

I hope that you are exercising and eating healthy. 

You will gain less weight, lose the baby weight much faster, have an easier delivery, less chances of gestational diabetes, less aches and pains, less sicknesses, more confidence, better sleep, more energy.

I mean, come on, what more do you want? LOL

Anyhow, I hope you try this and I hope it helps.

Because if you don’t feel sick then you can enjoy the beauty of pregnancy.  It truly is an amazing thing.

If you are currently working out and you are not sure what is safe and if its effective enough, or if you haven’t started but now you are excited about starting so you can get all these benefits, I am happy to be your coach. I have worked with thousands and thousands of pregnant women and helped them to have a healthy and fit pregnancy.  And trust me, I know how it feels, after 2 pregnancies.

    I am a very healthy eater, work out a lot too and i had the wordt pregnacy ever. Felt sick for 26 weeks every day and night. I threw up potatoes, green beans, salat, cooked carrots. The only thing that helped a little bit was coke. So thanks for the advice but i still believe its a hormonial thing…

    I eat clean and I had hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) with my pregnancies and unfortunately, I could not keep most foods down. HG is linked to H. Pylori bacteria, which my dr. tested me for and I did not have. HG may be linked to a magnesium deficiency and taking epsom bath did help as well as a magnesium spray. I just wanted to share this information b/c what you are struggling with may be more than morning sickness, esp if eating clean isn’t making you feel better. I had to take zofran and do iv’s. Good luck. I wish there was more information available for people who struggle with HG.
