Morning Sickness And Summer Heat

You’re pregnant. Yay!!

You’re pregnant during the summer. Yay-ack-ugh!

We all know that heat and humidity can increase the rottenness of morning sickness. But, there are a few things you can do to help get your pregnant self through the summer weather.

First, no matter the temperature, get a Reliefband® and wear it to treat the nausea, retching, and vomiting associated with morning sickness.

Stay hydrated. Make ice cubes out of your OB/GYN-approved refreshing liquid and, on those days when you can’t make yourself drink, suck on those cubes. Also, keep foods and beverages in the house that will rehydrate you quickly. Always check with your OB/GYN to determine what will work for you.

If you have to leave your air-conditioned happy place, stay in the shade outdoors, and if possible, sit in the path of a sprinkler, or plop your bare feet in a kiddie pool filled with cool water. If neither of those water options are available, take a spray bottle full of water with you and give yourself a spritz every now and then.

Even when you’re enjoying air-conditioning, a cool shower can help.

Avoid your triggers, such as certain smells or foods. But, make yourself eat a little something. An empty stomach does not decrease nausea.

Take care of yourself, and here’s hoping for a mild summer!

If you have a moment, share your summer heat vs. morning sickness tricks in the comments so that other readers might benefit.
