"Often the only thing that would help me to feel better, would be a popsicle"

During my second and third pregnancies I experienced bad nausea. I remember waking up in the middle of the night and having to run to the bathroom... Even after my stomach was empty, i'd still just feel sick. At some point I would go downstairs and sit by myself in the dark (like a big exhausted weirdo) until the horrible feeling would pass. Often the only thing that would help me to feel better would be a popsicle / waterijs / ice block etc (there are lots of different names depending on your culture). My personal favourites were the Dutch 'Raketjes' but... if I had created Sunny Mummy on time for myself - I would have for sure preferred these ones! Healthy, refreshing, nausea-subsiding and delicious!
