Morning Sickness (Vomiting During Pregnancy) Prevention

You may not be able to prevent nausea during the early part of your pregnancy, but you can minimize your symptoms. It can become a vicious cycle, where nausea leads to vomiting, which leads to dehydration, which leads to more nausea. The earlier you can control the symptoms, the better.

"Take home" suggestions to remember:

  • Nausea and vomiting during pregnancy usually last several weeks.
  • No one thing helps everyone.
  • Get to know what techniques work best for you and use them.
