Although my gynae was quick to assure me that my morning sickness was a wonderful sign of a healthy pregnancy, that did little to cheer me up while attempting to function like a normal person during my first trimesters. There are many theories on the cause but the main culprits seem to be raging hormones and low blood sugar, particularly first thing in the morning.
This smoothie contains some tried and tested anti nausea remedies and gives a great nutritional boost. Optimally it would be served at your bedside when you wake to avoid you having to move around to much with that low blood sugar but if that's not working for you it'll do the trick later in the day too.
Morning sickness is unpleasant but it usually not crippling. If your symptoms seem unusually severe, talk to your medical care provider. There’s a more serious condition called Hyperemesis Gravidarum that sometimes requires more specialized treatment.
For a real feel good session make yourself a smoothie and book a relaxing prenatal massage right in the comfort of your home.
