Morning sickness sucks!
There is no candy coating it! Anti-nausea popsicles might be just the thing to help you get through it. When my best friend was pregnant and STRUGGLING with terrible morning sickness, I searched high and low for every remedy to help her get through her 1st trimester. Nausea Pops was one of the yummier remedies I came across. The key to this is the ginger. Some studies show that ginger is an effective treatment for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.

Feel free to substitute the fruit. You can substitute coconut water for the apple juice. It is loaded with electrolytes. P.S. this would be a great Labor popsicle too!
