1. Have Dry Toast Or Crackers Before You Get Up

If you're prone to feeling sick as soon as you wake up, eating crackers or dry toast before you get out of bed can be helpful. They'll help settle your stomach and also give you some energy. You might also want to ease yourself out of bed slowly and gently so you don't feel woozy.

2. Smell Some Lemons

Place a diffuser with a few drops of lemon essential oil in your bedroom or a dab a little on your hankie to ease that queasy feeling. You can also carry a fragrant lemon with you.

3. Avoid Hot Meals

If you're partial to hot meals, it might be time to try something different. Usually, there's nothing as appetizing as the aroma of a piping hot meal. But during pregnancy, things take a turn and these very smells can be nauseating. So having your meals at room temperature or even slightly colder can help since cold food doesn't smell as strongly as hot food.

4. Drink Ginger Tea

Research shows that ginger is effective at easing nausea. A compound called 6 - gingerol present in it is thought to be responsible for this beneficial effect. Steep half to one teaspoon of freshly grated ginger in hot water and strain to make a cup of soothing ginger tea. Drink up to ease nausea.

5. Apply Pressure Three Finger Breadths Beneath Your Wrist

Many studies have found that stimulating the acupressure point known as P6, which lies three finger breadths beneath your wrist on the inside of your arm, can help ease nausea and vomiting. You can simply apply pressure on this point with your fingers when you feel a wave of nausea coming.

6. Practice Yoga

Yoga practice has been found to help with stress, anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, and low back pain. And it might help ease morning sickness too. Asanas such as balasana (child's pose), ardha chandrasana (half moon pose) and prasarita padottanasana (wide-legged forward bend) can be particularly helpful.
