- try eating smaller meals or snacks, more frequently
- have a snack before bed, and if you wake up in the night to use the bathroom, have a snack then too. this will help keep blood sugar from dropping so low during the night.
- eat a snack BEFORE getting out of bed in the morning. keep some crackers next to your bed.
- sparkling juice
- salty crackers
- peppermint (even just smelling peppermint sometimes can help)
- acupressure bands such as sea bands

The First Trimester

Not all women experience this and it ranges from mild nausea to severe vomiting. Morning sickness doesn't only happen in the morning, for many women it is present all day long. The good new is that it usually doesn't last much longer than the first trimester. That being said, 12 weeks can feel like an eternity. So, what can you do to alleviate morning sickness?
