Foods to Prevent Pregnancy Nausea
Unfortunately there is no guarantee that any food will help you to avoid pregnancy nausea completely. Still, there are some things you can try to keep the nausea from overwhelming you during your pregnancy.
You may find that you feel best when you have a little food in your stomach; if so, you'll want to avoid allowing your stomach to get empty. Nibble on easy-to-digest foods if you wake up during the night, as well as first thing in the morning and throughout the day. It is best to avoid foods with strong aromas; because hot foods are usually more aromatic, you may tolerate cold foods better tolerated than hot foods. Another way to avoid or reduce the aroma of foods is to open the house when you are cooking or eating. Avoid fried or other high-fat foods because they will stay in your stomach longer and can make pregnancy nausea worse.
Generally speaking, foods high in simple carbohydrates and relatively low in protein and fat will sit best on your stomach. Not everyone responses to foods the same way, so pay attention to the way you respond and choose foods that work well for you.
A few foods you can try:
Crackers (such as saltines or grahams)
Dry breakfast cereal
Baked potato (plain or with only a little something added, such as cottage cheese)
Rice (and rice cakes)
