First Tri Nausea/Fatigue
God bless, it’s truly the worst shit ever. With JJ it was bad. It was all day flu like symptoms and I wouldn’t actually vomit, just nauseous and smell sensitive all damn day. Cringe at the thought. Anyway, moms going through it, I see you and I am praying for you, especially if you have another one to look after at the same time, it’s like ummm hellish. Here is what I did to get through. Everyyyyone is different so take this with a grain.
AROMARINGS. Praise the heavens above. I think I had one in my nose for 9 weeks. Literally GAME CHANGE. In your first trimester your sense of smell is INTENSE. They think that may be why we get so nauseous. Who knows. Everything I smelled from my fridge to Jerry cooking chicken made me want to literally DIE. The aroma rings were a lifesaveerrrrrrrrrr, when I was done with one I would put it in a plastic bag with peppermint oil so I could reuse.
Unisom at night. Sleeping pill, people say it helps with nausea. It could’ve eased it but idk honestly. This shit will knock you out but if you don’t think it’s working use Rutavala on your feet for sleep. I could not diffuse anything first trimester, that is literally how ill I was.
Super Vitamin B. Yo swear this is a game changer. I doubled my dose on this.
Ningxia + Club. Water was even an issue to get down so this I drank all day. This way I knew I was getting the nutrients that I was lacking by not eating. I froze my ningxia packets as well. Idk why it went down so much better that way.
Supplements. Wasn’t pretty getting these down BUT I took Master Formula which covers just about everything you need, a prenatal, and Life 9 because I was irregular thanks to hormones. Lmao wild.
Carbs + soup. All I could do. Wooooooo lord it was bad.
Lemons. Lemons in my water, diffused lemon and peppermint all day.
Digize on both belly and back morning and night. The smell is hard to take at this point but it did provide some relief. Peppermint on your tummy should only be avoided in the last tri so you good.
Spearmint oil on your thumb, apply to roof of mouth for some relief.
Peppermint behind my neck all day. Eucalyptus and lavender in the shower – idk why this did it for me.
Aromaease is one people swear by but personally I couldn’t stomach the smell. Try it though, everyone is different.
Red raspberry leaf tea is said to help but it didn’t help with me. *gag*
