Pregnant, I still feel nauseous

Nausea yes, but why?

Most pregnant women suffer from it (72% according to the Ifop-Maternov study), but it remains mysterious. They often appear at the beginning of pregnancy to cease around the 12th week and are rarely serious.

What do we do?

Medications are prohibited, except those that the doctor prescribes (an antiemetic, most often). There is also a food supplement based on ginger (Maternov nausea); and homeopathy is effective (example:Compound Tabacum, 5 granules 4 times a day, ask your pharmacist).

And the other stuff.

There is a natural solution that requires a little organization:you split your meals into 5 or 6 snacks so that your stomach does not remain empty, you avoid acidic fruits (orange, grapefruit, etc.) and you opt for the apple or, better, the banana, stuffed with more potassium (interesting for cramps, another pregnancy wound). We forget foods that are too sweet, too fatty and too spicy.

Finally, we drink water, in small sips all day, rather outside of meals, and even classic Coke, rich in sodium and potassium, yes, yes.
