My first trimester of pregnancy with Darah was not too terribly bad, other than the fact that I threw up every single day. Thankfully, my nausea would usually come in two predictable waves (while getting ready for work, and about 20 minutes after getting home for the day). I know that not every woman who deals with this symptom is quite so lucky.
Still, even though I knew when it was coming, I still struggled with it. I remember walking up and down the aisles of our local Whole Foods one day, desperately seeking any type of food product that didn’t make me want to hurl at the mere thought of eating or drinking it. That was a tall order for many weeks, I’m afraid.
A girlfriend gave me a few Preggie Pops that she had leftover from her pregnancy, and I LOVED them. Preggie Pops are lollipops that are designed to help with morning sickness. I recall that they helped me a great deal. In fact, I was very sad when I ran out because I couldn’t find any more in Memphis (and I guess I was just not thinking straight or else I could have just ordered more online!).
Preggie Pops has two main products for pregnant women. The Preggie Popscome in packages of 7 for $3.95 and have the following flavors: sour fruit, ginger and mint. They also have a variety pack, which is what I would recommend so that you can find your favorite flavor. The second option is the Preggie Pop Drops. These come in packages of 21 and are really ideal for any environment where you don’t especially want to be seen sucking on a lollipop! Their size is much closer to a lozenge. These are available for $5.50. They also have an organic drops option, but it is considerably more expensive, at $5.5o for just 12 drops.
I remember the feeling of morning sickness, and how horrible it felt to not be able to find anything to help alleviate the feeling. Preggie Pops really did work for me, and so I highly recommend them to anyone who is dealing with pregnancy-related nausea. They just might do the trick! They are also a very thoughtful gift for anyone who just announced a pregnancy!
