When I found out I was pregnant with my second daughter, I was dreading the inevitable morning sickness (which, incidentally, lasts ALL day!). Then a friend of mine gave me a container of Preggie Pop Drops as a congratulations gift. I was skeptical, but figured, worst case scenario, they were a yummy candy.
Preggie Pop Drops are an organic candy that contains all-natural, homeopathic ingredients that are touted as having stomach-soothing properties, such as ginger and lemon. There are two different varieties: the sour variety (sour flavors are thought to ease queasiness) and the herbal varieties, made of lavender, ginger and peppermint. They are easily found online, or at your local Motherhood Maternity tore, where I got mine for the rest of the first trimester. They run about $5.99 or so.
As funny as it might sound to eat lavender candy, they work! They are delicious, too, all the varieties. Plus, I liked that they were small candies I could toss in my purse and discreetly pop in my mouth. There are Preggie Pops lollipops as well, but I always felt a bit conspicuous walking around with a lollipop in my mouth.
Preggie Pop Drops should be the first thing you buy after you get the positive pregnancy test!!
