This post is not sponsored. I just really freaking love these things and they offered me so much relief from morning sickness during my pregnancy with Graci in 2016-2017. It is my hope that they will help someone else!
Be sure to consult a doctor before using these during your pregnancy if you have any concerns. The following article IS NOT medical advice.
Morning Sickness? Um, How About All-Day, Everyday Sickness?
My first trimester of pregnancy was anything but easy. I had morning sickness all day long, and every single day. After a bit of trial and error, I was able to find a medicinal remedy that reduced my nausea.
But it was never completely gone.
Though the medicine was definitely a welcome relief, I was still eager to find other non-medicinal remedies.
After a bit of research, I found a few products to try. One of these products was a candy-like product called Preggie Pop Drops. At first I was super skeptical about how something without medicine would actually help me. But I decided to take the plunge and order some anyway.
Preggie Pop Drops
Preggie Pop Drops are a sour hard candy that you suck on when you are feeling the symptoms of morning sickness. The company who sells the Preggie Pop Drops sells the product as a “Dietary Supplement.” Each Preggie Pop Drop contains only a handful of ingredients such as:
- dried cane syrup
- corn syrup
- citric acid
- natural flavors (that are made with essential oils)
- natural colors
- Vitamin B6 (included in the “Plus” version)
If it is important to you to eat organic, you can even get an organic variety!
I purchased a jar of 48 from Amazon that included four flavors — sour raspberry, green apple, sour lemon and sour tangerine. Although I was skeptical of what good these drops would do for my morning sickness, I still gave them a try.
Surprisingly, when I felt nauseous, I could put a drop in my mouth and by the time the drop was dissolved, my morning sickness was notably less, or gone completely. I’m convinced these things are magic.
When family members have felt nauseous, I have even given them one. And you know what? EVERYONE that has tried them thinks they are magic. (Even when they aren’t pregnant!)
My favorite way to use the product has been to keep a handful in my bag and use them when a sudden bout of nausea sneaks up on me. They have definitely saved me from getting sick on multiple occasions.
Of all of the products that I’ve discovered as a result of being pregnant, these bad boys top my list! (Check out my top 6 favorite pregnancy products here.)
If you’re curious about trying Preggie Pop Drops, I’ve seen them in brick and mortar stores like Target and online at Amazon.
