Suffering From Morning Sickness At Work? We’ve Got You Covered

Dealing with constant nausea while being in the comfort of your own home is tough enough, but for women who have to travel into work every day, it can cause a lot of distress and sometimes lead to embarrassing mishaps.

Here are some handy tips for dealing with morning sickness at work.

We’ll start with the commute:

Are nausea, vomiting, and dizziness interfering with your ability to drive? It might be an idea to forgo driving for a bit and take a cab or grab a ride if you can.

  • Bring a bottle of icy cold water to sip on.
  • Keep the windows open in the car, so you get fresh air.
  • Have a few puke bags stored in your purse.

During the Day at Work:

  • Keep some lemons handy in a drawer for sniffing when you feel nauseous. It works, I swear.
  • If you can, try to have a few puke bags and a small garbage can around. Keep snacks handy; saltines, ginger candies, granola bars, fruit. Whatever works for you.
  • Taking a little fresh air break can help relieve nausea.

Supplies to Freshen Up:

So, you’re at work, you’ve tossed your cookies, and now you smell like puke, yay. It’s a great idea to have a little kit prepared for yourself so that you can freshen up after a bout of vomiting.

  • A toothbrush, toothpaste, and mouthwash.
  • Face wipes or tissues.
  • Makeup, if you wear it.
