By: Rachel Neifeld, RD, CDNBetween 70 to 85 percent of pregnant women experience morning sickness during their first trimester with nausea usually beginning around the sixth week of pregnancy. Small, frequent meals: Keep snacks such as dry toast, cereal, and crackers near you at all times. Drink fluids: Your body needs more water during the first few months of pregnancy so it’s important to stay hydrated. Supplementation: Pyridoxine, or vitamin B6 may help women with severe and persistent nausea and vomiting.
Since you may not be getting all of the nutrients you need from food during these times of upset stomach,be sure to include a prenatal vitamin every day to ensure you receive all of the vitamins andminerals your body needs.Fortunately, there are many strategies to manage nausea and vomiting to promote a healthy, more comfortable pregnancy. Get up slowly in the morning and have a snack such as Shredded Wheat bite-sized biscuits kept near your bedside to avoid moving around on an empty stomach.


Have beverages, soup, and fruit juices mixed withcarbonated beverages to settle your stomach between meals. Have someoneelse cook for you so you do not become nauseated by a certain ingredient used in thecooking process. Try flat ginger ale, ginger tea, gingersnaps, gingerbread, shredded fresh ginger, and ginger candies. Even for women without these symptoms, vitaminB6 is an important vitamin that is required in greater amounts especially during laterstages of pregnancy when the fetus is increasing the most in size.

Then make sure your stomach is not empty throughout the rest of the day by eating five or sixsmall meals including easy-to-digest foods such as bananas, rice, applesauce, and tea. You may want to tryavoiding drinking beverages with your meals as the fluid will fill up your stomach makingless room for food and worsening feelings of nausea.


Also try to create a restful environment since reducing stress has beenshown to reduce nausea and vomiting.
The reason is unclear why vitamin B6 may help prevent nausea and studies are inconclusive regarding its effectiveness. Citrus fruits also tend to behelpful- just smelling a lemon when you feel queasy may alleviate nausea. To meet your needs for vitamin B6 during pregnancy, try to include the following foods in your diet: Chicken, fish, liver, pork, eggs, soybeans, carrots, cabbage, cantaloupe, peas, spinach, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, bananas, beans, broccoli, brown rice, oats, bran, peanuts, and walnuts.
A prenatal vitamin will also contain the required amount of vitamin B6 in case you don’t meet 100% of your needs through food sources.
