Drink lots of fluid. It\’s extremely important that you stay hydrated, especially if you\’re getting sick frequently. If you let yourself become dehydrated, you will feel even more nauseated. Sip fluids throughout the day, using a straw if it helps. Try to refrain from drinking 30 minutes before or after eating, however. You should try to drink about 6 to 8 glasses of water each day.
However, if you\’ve been getting sick a lot, you can try replacing some of the water with a sports drink containing glucose, salt, or potassium to help restore lost electrolytes. Alternatively, you can try drinking cold, carbonated beverages, as some women find these easier on the stomach. Other women also find sour drinks, like lemonade, easier to keep down.
Avoid drinking too many fluids, though. Liquids can give you a false sense of fullness which may cause you to feel less hungry throughout the day.
The BRAT diet — standing for bananas, rice, applesauce and toast — is least likely to upset your stomach further, as long as you\’re not actively vomiting.
These foods, known as \”binders,\” are low in fiber to help firm your stools. Bananas, which are rich in potassium, also help stimulate the production of mucus in the stomach lining, creating a barrier from the acidic substances that can cause nausea. Follow this diet for a limited period of time, as it does not contain all essential nutrients.
