Preggie Pops - A great way to deal with pregnancy nausea.
By: Dr. Tatyana Gurvich - Pharmacologist and Consultant
Nausea associated with pregnancy is a very common phenomenon occurring in up to 90% of pregnancies. It generally appears by the 4th to 8th week of pregnancy and usually disappears by the 16th week which is the beginning of the 2nd trimester. Unfortunately, some women have morning sickness that persists for a longer time period. Morning sickness is somewhat of a misnomer since it can last all day. A small percentage of women have nausea and vomiting that is so severe that it is harmful for the baby and the mother. In such cases effective prescription medicines are available which your healthcare provider can prescribe for you. However, most women have milder nausea and vomiting for which prescription medications are unnecessary. Several different herbs have been shown to be helpful in relieving nausea associated with pregnancy:
All of these herbs have been “Generally Recognized As Safe” (GRAS) for use in food in the U.S. and Europe. No serious adverse effects have been reported with any of these herbs when they are used in moderation.
Although it is not known exactly how these herbs work, it is postulated that they all have a local soothing and antispasmodic effect on the stomach. Recent scientific evidence shows that they are effective at relieving nausea. For example, in a clinical trial of pregnant women, ginger was found to be more effective than a sugar pill in relieving morning sickness.
Sucking on a lollipop which contains a small amount of these herbs is a safe and soothing way to deal with your nausea during pregnancy and can also be a wonderful aid for the discomforts of Labor!!
Frequently Asked Questions:
What's in Preggie Pops and how do they work?
Childbirth educators have historically recommended sour flavored pops for labor because they were perceived to be less likely to exacerbate queasy stomachs. Lavender has been widely used in aroma therapy for relaxation and sometimes for upset stomach as well. Mint has long been used in both oral and aroma therapies for upset tummies. Ginger is an ancient remedy for tummy troubles and research shows that mint has been used for over a hundred years.
Three Lollies uses the natural essences from these sources to flavor their Preggie Pops. For nausea caused by hypoglycemia, even the sugar and brown rice syrup in Three Lollies' pops can be effective. In fact even the mode of delivery is therapeutic as only a small amount is delivered to the stomach at a time. So, part of why Preggie Pops work rests on where your morning sickness is coming from, which is still rather poorly understood. The overwhelming response from Three Lollies' customers is that their special formulation does work for most women.
In development of their Preggie Pops, Three Lollies also incorporated what women requested or recommended. Three Lollies' pops are for both labor and morning sickness and they have tried to address each phase with specific flavors. However, Three Lollies' customers report using all flavors with success for both labor and morning sickness.
Preggie Pops use only natural flavors and colors and there are no medications to interfere with other therapies or complicate your pregnancy.
In summary: Three Lollies Preggie Pops work by a combination of:
- Specific essential oils flavors known to help stomach problems
- Mode of delivery
- Sugars to combat hypoglycemic queasy stomach
- And, they are safe because they are all natural
What can Three Lollies tell me about the amount of specific herbal ingredients used for efficacy?
Three Lollies has their own special recipe and while their customers report it is very effective, it is far less than the large quantities often used to obtain results in large research models. Three Lollies believes this is because of the combination of elements working together in their product. For instance, when you have a pill form of "x" number of milligrams of lavender or ginger you have separated out some other elements, such as the aromatherapy component, which Three Lollies feels can be of significant value. With their mints, for example, customers report feeling better even as they inhale the fragrance.
I know someone who uses Preggie Pops for air travel sickness, has Three Lollies heard this?
Many customers report using Three Lollies Preggie Pops for motion sickness with good success. Please check out Three Lollies' Queasy Pop products for more alternatives.
Do all of the Preggie Pops have ginger in them?
No, the other flavors do not contain ginger. However, Three Lollies' other flavor oils, such as citrus or mints also have a long history of being used to soothe tummies in their own right.
Are Preggie Pops kosher?
Yes, K of-K certified.
I now have gestational diabetes and wonder if I can still use Preggie Pops?
You may want to order sugarfree Queasy Pops. They are available in two flavors: ginger and sour raspberry. Splenda is used to sweeten these popular Pops and they have 0 net carbs. Otherwise, since you have gestational diabetes you are in a bit of a quandary. Gestational diabetes is nothing to take casually. You will need to take your healthcare provider and dietician's advice on how many carbohydrates (for example; sugar, brown rice syrup) you can safely allow yourself. Always listen to your healthcare team. Many pregnant women have glucose intolerance, which is less severe but still requires you to be careful with sugars and starches. Three Lollies' pops do have carbohydrates; in fact, this is part of what makes them work for some women.
Each pop contains 8 grams of carbohydrate. This is approximately one half of a carbohydrate serving, if you are following the 15 grams of carbohydrate to a serving method. Therefore, depending on how many carbohydrates you are allowed you could substitute a Preggie Pop if you were feeling nauseated.
One concern would be that you don't use so many Preggie Pops that you are always substituting a simple sugar (lollipop) for your carbohydrate serving. Simple sugars are good for energy but do not contain the vitamins, minerals or fiber that a more complex carbohydrate like beans, whole grain bread or a potato would give you. On the other hand, if you are going to bring that potato up later, it won't do you much good either, so play it by ear and keep close tabs with your health care providers so you will have a safe and healthy pregnancy.
I get nauseated and sometimes also have the dry heaves. Can Preggie Pops help me?
Dry heaves are no picnic. Many women with morning sickness don't necessarily vomit but do report to us that our pops help with that nauseous feeling. Nausea usually comes before the "dry heaves", and if you stop the sick stomach feeling you just might avoid the heaves. Once you are vomiting most things will not work as well. You might try avoiding greasy foods while you're at it. Good luck and Three Lollies wishes for smoother sailing for you from here on in.
Do Preggie Pops work for everyone?
Each person responds in their own way to any therapy. Therefore, nothing works for everyone. However, Three Lollies has many, many, satisfied customers and you can read what they have to say on their website.
I am a repeat customer and Preggie Pops are the only thing that works for me. How many Preggie Pops can I eat a day?
The limit as to how many Preggie Pops can be consumed in a day is really an individual call. There is no known danger limit, as all ingredients are food quality and natural products; however, use your common sense. If you are pregnant, (some of Three Lollies' customers are on chemo or have motion sickness), you will need to include vitamin, mineral and fiber sources in your allotment of daily carbohydrate calories. Preggie Pops have about 40 calories each. If you are on an 1800 calorie diet and had 45% of your calories allocated as carbohydrates this would be about 800 calories a day for the carbohydrate budget. Included in this allotment I'm expecting your healthcare provider would want you to have mostly whole grains, starchy vegetables and fruits.
Three Lollies always recommends you ask your healthcare provider, or dietitian, the same question you asked us, because they do not know your individual health history. Some women have special concerns, such as gestational diabetes, and each special health concern will require the answer to be individualized. Some women have reported eating as many as 6 pops a day which would still leave room for some other high quality foods. You may want to order sugarfree Queasy Pops. They are available in two flavors: ginger and sour raspberry. Splenda is used to sweeten these popular Pops.
Are Preggie Pops absolutely safe for pregnancy?
Three Lollies has absolutely no reason to believe Preggie Pops are not safe. There is neither any medication, nor any newly created substance in them. All the ingredients are natural food items. On the other hand, each of us is a unique individual and we must use our common sense when considering a new product. For instance, a diabetic would need to figure the grams of carbohydrate of a Preggie Pop into her meal plan. If you have any food allergies this would have to be considered. It is important to be a conscientious consumer and ask about the safety of anything you consume when pregnant. Please discuss your questions with your healthcare provider before considering any product safe in pregnancy.
Does Three Lollies make Preggie Pops or Queasy-Pops for diabetic women?
Absolutely, Three Lollies now offers sugarfree Queasy Pops. They are available in two flavors: ginger and sour raspberry. Splenda is used to sweeten these popular Pops.
Can the ginger in Preggie Pops cause uterine contractions?
Ginger is a well known remedy for nauseated people. Three Lollies' pharmacologist tells them that the studies she has seen report that a person would have to ingest greater than 250 mg a day of pure ginger extract to cause any adverse reaction. Three Lollies' Preggie Pops use only a trace amount of actual ginger for the natural flavor used. Therefore Three Lollies considers Preggie Pops quite safe. As always, you should consult your healthcare provider on a question of this nature, and follow their advice.
Forget "morning" sickness, I have "all day sickness" and can't keep anything down. I want to try Preggie Pops but can Three Lollies give me any other tips for morning sickness?
You are not alone. "Morning sickness" is somewhat of a misnomer because many women do suffer throughout the day. Try to relax and eat only what sounds good to you for the time being. This phase should pass sooner or later. Some food is better than no food. Always keep your health care provider informed of what is going on during this time to insure the best care. Some women will actually need to have intravenous fluids due to dehydration. Your healthcare provider needs to be aware of your condition to help you maintain a safe and healthy pregnancy.
Other tips include:
- A snack of protein plus carbohydrate (cheese or peanut butter and crackers)
- Mixing salty and tart (lemonade and potato chips)
- Avoiding large meals, greasy foods, and strong smelling foods.
- You might try keeping a nonperishable snack next to your bed and eating it before you get up for the day.
- Get some fresh air.
Remember, the baby acts as a good parasite and is quite small in the first three months, nutrition-wise you are the one more likely to suffer (i.e., anemia) if it continues throughout, or beyond, the 1st three months. Take solace in the fact that morning sickness is considered a positive sign of pregnancy.
What about using honey instead of brown rice syrup or sugar?
Three Lollies has considered the honey idea but has not offered a product yet. In human digestion the sugar, honey and brown rice syrup all end up as the same thing; glucose. The difficulty with honey seems to be getting a pop mixture that has reasonable shelf life and ability to cook into the right consistency, hardness and resistance to moisture in the air.
Do you think this will help people with Meniere’s disease?
While one of their customers has written to say she uses Queasy Pops with success, especially the cinnamon, Three Lollies has no other evidence that Preggie Pops help with Meniere's disease. Three Lollies supposes you could give them a try for the nausea and vomiting symptoms but they may not help with the other symptoms of the syndrome such as dizziness, tinnitus or loss of equilibrium. Since these symptoms are likely causing the nausea, Three Lollies is sorry to say that their lollies are not necessarily the answer for you. Now, Three Lollies supposes, there's an outside chance that if the symptoms are due to a pressure change in the semi-circular canals of the ear, that the act of sucking could alter the symptoms. This is purely conjecture, however, and Meniere's symptoms could also be caused by infection, allergy, or various circulatory problems. Your family healthcare provider is your best bet with this problem.
When does Three Lollies consider Preggie Pops to be expired?
Preggie Pops have a shelf-life of 18 months.
Are Preggie Pops effective for inner ear problems?
Three Lollies' customers report using the pops for various types of motion sickness with various results but they don't market their product for inner ear complaints. That sounds like a job for your family healthcare provider.
Will Preggie Pops help my heartburn?
While Three Lollies does not market their product for heartburn, if you check their testimonials you will see that some customers are using them for relief. Mint is probably your best bet.
However, Three Lollies' heartburn suggestions include:
- Eat smaller more frequent meals.
- Avoid foods which you know cause heartburn for you.
- Try taking meals and beverages separately to keep from over filling your stomach.
- Try cold or cool foods instead of hot meals.
- If your healthcare provider approves you could try an antacid such as, "Tums".
- Don't lay down right after eating.
- Talk to your healthcare provider.
I have nut allergies. Are Preggiepops processed in a nut-free environment?
No, please be aware that PreggiePops, PreggieDrops, QueasyDrops, and QueasyPops are processed in a plant that also processes Dairy, Peanut, Almond, Walnut, Pecan, Nutmeg, Soy Protein and Wheat Products.
Are PreggiePops Gluten free?
PreggiePops are not made with flour but are manufactured in a plant where wheat products may also be processed.
Do Preggie Pops really work?
Because a queasy stomach can have many sources, there is no perfect solution for everyone. Three Lollies was careful in researching their flavors to select a variety of essential oils in order that people could find one that worked for them. In fact, they have received great feedback from people who say their pops relieved their nausea from car sickness, riding in airplanes, on boats, and also morning sickness. Because no specific herb or natural product is perfect for everyone, Three Lollies provides a variety of flavor choices. Try each to find your solution. Three Lollies believes their Queasy Pops are definitely worth a try. If you are looking for what Three Lollies' customers say, read their testimonials.
How can such a simple product help relieve my queasiness?
Many customers have written to Three Lollies expressing surprise with the relief they have experienced using their Queasy Pops. Keep in mind that their product includes herbal and natural ingredients which have stood the test of time and aid in the relief of those awful, transient, queasy stomachs. Three Lollies works hard to make a product that is pleasing rather than bad tasting.
Why are there so many flavors?
Research and experience in the health field, and in life, have taught Three Lollies that there is more than one way to solve a problem. Three Lollies has customers that only order one flavor, telling them it works best for them. Three Lollies always listens to their customers finding them a true source of wisdom. Three Lollies generally urges you to try their variety pack to see what helps you the most, and then order your favorite.
