Pregnancy is a special and life altering experience for an expectant mother! Their is so much joy and excitement about carrying your future bundle of joy while looking forward to the changes your body is going to go through. Everything is about to change! From your mood, body and appetite you will turn into a new person over the next nine months.
One of the most commonly know side effects of pregnancy in the early months is morning sickness. This uncomfortable side affect hits about 50% of pregnant women at some point in their pregnancy. The severity of morning sickness is different for each expectant mom.
When I was pregnant with my daughter, Ava, in 2010-11, I never suffered from blown morning sickness. People said, “Just wait, you’re going to be so sick!”, but that never really happened. What did happen though was an intense nauseous when coming in contact with certain types of foods. For example, one day early on in my pregnancy I decided I was going to make a roast chicken as a surprise for my husband who was in school at the time. When I took the package off the chicken and placed it on a pan a wave of nausea came over me. Just the sight of the chicken made me want to be sick. Being stubborn, I tried to continue my job which in retrospect wasn’t such a good idea. I ended up spending an hour in the bathroom and lets just say there was no roast chicken when my hubby got home!
Individuals recommend eating small meals throughout the day to help combat morning. Unfortunately, doing this doesn’t always combat the symptoms! To stop morning sickness debilitating a pregnant woman’s everyday routine, Sea-Band Mama, a new line of drug-free, natural products has created anti-nausea wrist bands and ginger lozenges to help alleviate the nausea associated with morning sickness.
Available at CVS and select Target stores, Sea-Band Mama wrist bands use acupressure to trigger the P6 Nei Kuan pressure point on the inside of the wrist to alleviate nausea from morning sickness. Stimulating this pressure point helps the body to calm nausea and vomiting. Free from artificial colors and flavors, Sea-Band Mama Ginger Lozenges were formulated with essential ginger oils to help relieve upset stomach. They also include folic acid to contribute to a normal maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
