Drink Plenty of Fluids

Morning sickness would lead to dehydration through vomiting. Thus, it is essential to stay hydrated by drinking a lot of water. Make sure to sip fluids during the day with a straw if necessary. However, avoid drinking around 30 minutes after or before eating. Aim for at least 2 liters or 8 glasses of water on a daily basis. When you get sick, replace with a sports drink that contains potassium, salt, or glucose to restore the loss of electrolytes. You can also drink some carbonated and cold beverages to help ease the stomach. [1]
