July 8 ( - Granulations you are pregnant. You may or may not feel nauseated throughout pregnancy. It is not a good feeling, but at least you can do something to relieve your feeling of nausea.

To overcome nausea, doctors may tell you take vitamin B-6. It can be prescribed or purchased over-the-counter. You may use the vitamin B 6 supplement or prenatal multi-vitamins with vitamin B 6. But watch the label to make sure it does not contain artificial colors or other additives.

Vitamin B 6 is water soluble, and generally safe so long as you do not take too much of it. Adults age 19 or older are believed to tolerate up to 100 mg per day.

The recommended Dietary Allowance for vitamin B 6 is 1.9 mg per day for you as a pregnant woman compared to 1.3 for adults age 19 to 50. But doctors may tell you to take much more than the recommended dietary allowance.

If you do not trust supplements or doctors, you may use foods with abundant amounts of vitamin B 6. Cereal is one source with rich vitamin B 6 as it is fortified with such a vitamin. If you don’t like processed foods, then you may try eating banana (0.68 mg per medium sized banana) and baked potatoes with skin (0.70 mg per medium sized potato). Other vitamin B 6 rich foods include salmon (0.48 mg / 3 ounces), turkey without skin (0.39 mg/ 3 ounces), chicken light meat without skin (0.46 mg / 3 ounces), and cooked spinach (0.44 mg / cup).

But remember that potato contains higher levels of pesticides compared to other produce, search to see which food contains more pesticides than others. Choose organic potatoes if you can. Farmed raised salmon may contain higher levels of pollutants such as PCBs and dioxins, some studies have already found. Choose Alaska wild salmon if possible.

Use of ginger may help you reduce pregnancy-induced nausea, as some studies suggest. But like anything self, you should not over do it.

Eating plain crackers between meals, and before and after sleep may help pregnant nausea too as many sources suggest. Make sure not to eat greasy and fried foods.

Lastly, follow your instinct to overcome nausea during the pregnancy.
