The Secret Cure For Morning Sickness
As any pregnant woman can tell you, the term “morning sickness” is an oxymoron.
Most of us preggos endure non-stop, all-day nausea and vomiting during our first trimesters and sometimes beyond.
And although not all of us reach Kate Middleton’s hyperemesis status, the “morning sickness” is just about as close to any torture as I can imagine. Honestly, there were some days that I hoped to throw up, just to relieve the nausea, so great was my desire just to get it over with. I think, in some ways, the constant nausea was worse than the actual vomiting.
Would you agree?
And while I know this isn’t exactly a lunch-friendly topic, it’s an important reality for many pregnant women and because of that I wanted to let you in on a little secret I stumbled upon.
Ok, are you ready?
The one, super-easy, affordable cure for morning sickness that you simply must try is this:
I stumbled upon this little cure for morning sickness during my first pregnancy and it literally saved my life. As long as I could pop one of those little peppermint candies in my mouth, I could enjoy a temporary respite from the seemingly never-ending morning sickness.
The most important thing about employing this home remedy for morning sickness, however, is that you must use authentic peppermints. Those little chewy ones or the “artificially-flavored” candies will not cut it. You must buy the authentic, old-fashioned hard peppermint candies for the magic to be effective. I think it’s the real peppermint in the candies that does the trick.
I found the best place to buy the authentic peppermint candies was in the bulk candy aisle at my local grocery store. I loaded up on a giant bag of the peppermints so I was able to keep a stash in my purse, car, and in my boyfriend’s car. Plus, the candies were cheaper that way.
I tell everyone I know about my peppermint candy morning sickness trick because it saved the day for me in my pregnancy. I’m not sure how I would have survived working night shift and finishing college without them!
