It doesn't even have to be considered a meal. If you can only hold down a handful of almonds, or a couple of crackers. A hard boiled egg, or a small cup of fat free yogurt. Eating every two hours will keep your blood sugar level which is a proven defense against pregnancy nausea. Also, when there's no food around to break down, digestive acids are left with only stomach lining to feed on. A process that produces nausea.

Think Protein

Eat protein snacks. Studies have shown that pregnant women experience less nausea when eating high-protein snacks.

Avoid Fatty Foods

Stay clear of greasy, fried, and other high fat foods, which are hard to digest and are loaded with oils that can send the nervous system into overdrive, aggravating your pregnancy nausea.

Take Your Vitamins
