Help With Morning Sickness

Morning sickness is very common during early pregnancy and usually resolves itself by 15 weeks’ gestation. Unlike the name, it frequently occurs at all times of the day and may be worse on an empty stomach. Small, frequent meals will help prevent this, so be a grazer during pregnancy. Acupressure wristbands may help with nausea. Over the counter medicines that might help include:

  • Unisom® (1/2 of 25mg tablets at bedtime)
  • Vitamin B6 (25mgs, three times a day)
  • Benadryl® (25mg every 4–6 hours)
  • Emetrol® (1–2tbsp upon wakening and every 3 hours as needed)
  • Ginger Ale (capsules are a less caloric option, take 250mg three times a day)

Prescription medications may be required for persistent nausea and vomiting. Please call us if you are unable to keep down any fluid for 24 hours.
