Coping with First Trimester Morning Sickness

Nov 17, 2022

Tea is helpful when coping with first trimester morning sickness symptoms.

The physical effects of the first trimester can vary greatly for everyone. Some may only notice feeling tired but notice no other changes. Others may not notice any symptoms at all. Then there are those that get hit with all of the symptoms in the first trimester (and beyond), like major fatigue, morning sickness (or all day and into forever sickness), emotional highs and lows…I’ve been there, and it is rough.

While scouring the internet for information on first trimester hacks, I noticed that everything revolved around advice for combatting nausea which can be helpful, though admittedly I had very little success with a majority of the tips I found.

This was disappointing to me because after having gone through some difficult pregnancies the one thing I remember struggling with is feeling frustrated that I couldn’t just feel normal and how suddenly ordinary tasks felt like climbing mountains.

I was sick, exhausted, and felt defeated as life seemed to pile up around me when all I really wanted to do was just feel well, be excited, and enjoy my time growing a human.

So, out of this need of my own I felt compelled to share my own tricks on surviving the portion of pregnancy that is really, really hard…even if it’s the whole thing (yes, even with that first trimester morning sickness!)
