    Hi all expecting mommies,
    THought this wud be useful for u all...
    Nausea occurs most commonly in the early half of the day and thus it gets the name "morning sickness". However you can feel nauseous at any time of the day or night.
    Some of you may find it more difficult to cope with nausea than others. If you're only feeling nauseous and are not vomiting, try chewing on mint, cardamom or clove to make you feel better. You can also try keeping Golpapdi in your mouth to help you relieve the nausea. It will also nourish you at the same time. Sucking on ginger or lemon is another alternative to keep your nausea at bay. Avoid chewing on betel nut (supari) and other packaged mouth fresheners. You may worry that your baby will not receive proper nourishment if you're vomiting or are nauseous and are not able to eat well. Put these fears to rest as your baby will still continue to get sufficient nourishment from your reserves. This is one of the reasons that gynaecologists recommend that you stock up on essential nutrients much before you conceive.
    Try and keep yourself busy, as the lesser you think about it, the less it will bother you.

    To calm these uneasy days, these are a few things to keep in mind:

    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=5 width="98%"><!-- third table----------><TD vAlign=top width="5%" height=47>[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]1. [/FONT]<TD vAlign=top height=47>Eat low fat foods that are rich in carbohydrates like toast, khakhra or chikki. These foods will help relieve the sensation of morning sickness. Try out Whole Wheat Methi Khakhra, Bajra Khakhra, Til Chikki etc. These are mildly flavoured foods, lacking in strong smells which will relieve the nausea and calm you. If you can manage it, have a bowl of cereal with milk - for it's a great way to start your day. <TD vAlign=top width="5%">[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]2. [/FONT]<TD vAlign=top>Have a mid-morning snack consisting of a yoghurt shake, fruit juice, dried fruits like dates, apricots (have them whole or in the form of shakes like Fig and Apricot Shake) or just any fruits that you like. <TD vAlign=top width="5%">[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]3. [/FONT]<TD vAlign=top>Avoid eating foods with excessive seasoning and also those which are strongly flavoured as they can aggravate nausea. You can have mild flavoured dishes like Cucumber Curd Rice to help relieve you. <TD vAlign=top width="5%">[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]4. [/FONT]Sipping cold water, juices or shakes from time to time will keep nausea at bay and will also ensure that you get your fluid requirement for the day. Sip on sherbets or drinks like My Fair Lady etc. <TD vAlign=top width="5%">[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]5. [/FONT]<TD vAlign=top>Apart from hormonal changes, nausea is sometimes related to stress and anxiety. Deep breathing or listening to soothing music calms the mind and reduces stress. Learn to slowly breathe and relax whenever you experience stress. Meditation and yoga are also helpful for relaxation. The more relaxed you are, the easier it will be for you to cope with this discomfort.<TD vAlign=top width="5%">[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]6. [/FONT]<TD vAlign=top>Avoid self-medication. If your morning sickness persists for several weeks, do consult your gynaecologist as she may be able to prescribe some medication to ease your discomfort. <TD vAlign=top width="5%">[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]7. [/FONT]If you are vomiting, you may continue to lose a lot of fluids along with the nutrients. Try and consume at least 2 litres of fluid every day. You can have these fluids in any form suitable to you, preferably milk shakes, buttermilk, juices, soups and water.

    Re: Nausea and Vomiting During Pregnancy

    The betel leaves has the power to suck the air and fill the gap with its juices. So the pregnant ladies use to chew Betel leaves with nut and lime.

    The vocal singers use to chew betel leaves as their throat normally create vacuum during long pulls (AAlabhana)
