my morning sickness remedies

I really thought I was going to by-pass morning sickness this time around, but I didn't get so lucky!  Yesterday I had my first visit with the nurse concerning this pregnancy and the morning sickness I've been feeling lately.  This time she suggested something I haven't heard of doing, so after the appointment we sprinted went to our local drug store and bought motion sickness wrist bands.  I was a little skeptical at first but now I am a believer.  I still have the nausea, but at ALOT lesser degree.  It started working about five minutes after I put them on both wrists.  The cost was around $8.00. 

Sea Band Motion Sickness Wrist Bands For Adult Features:
  • it is a knitted elasticized wrist band, which operates by applying pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist by means of a plastic stud.
  • it has been clinically tested against nausea and vomiting in travel, pregnancy, anaesthesia, chemotherapy and all conditions which induce nausea.
  • They are suitable for adults and children.
  • Because the bands do not use drugs, they do not cause any of the side effects associated with anti-nausea drugs and can be worn on each wrist whenever you feel nauseous.
  • Simple to use, the Sea-Band does not need specialist handling.
  • Care should be taken however to position the bands according to the instructions provided with the product.
  • They become effective within 5 minutes even if nausea has already started.
  • They can be worn continuously.
and my other morning sickness helper?

My friend and sister used these and had relief. I forgot about them. I'll need to tell my two daughters who are having bad morning sickness. Thanks for sharing and congratulations!
