1: Eat small meals
Eating small meals throughout the day — not skipping meals — is key to keeping your morning sickness to a minimum. Stick to simple foods such as chicken soup and fruit that are easy to digest and drink plenty of water in between meals to prevent dehydration and to make sure your stomach stays full. If you vomit daily or start to lose weight, be sure to talk to your healthcare provider.
