I am 11 weeks now and am still suffering from Nausea. I am taking 3 to 4 tablets of Declectin per day and it helps alot! I am no longer throwing up everything I eat. I do however still have nausea throughout the day just not as severe. I have found that Peppermint and Spearmint tea help as well as Ginger tea, are these safe to drink throughout the day and how much is safe?
Ginger tea is considered safe as it is used specifically for NVP in up to amounts of 1000mg/day which is a lot of cups of tea. There are no studies on the safety of spearmint or peppermint tea in pregnancy,however Health Canada advises use in moderation(1-2 cups per day).
