    "Morning" sickness

    Does anyone know where I can buy those motion sickness wristbands? My "morning" sickness has kicked in in full force and while I only actually get sick in the mornings I feel like I am going to be sick all day and it is just awful (although I am grateful as well for the symptoms). I would prefer not to take anything if I don't have to but I have tried everything other than the bands. So I thought I would pick one up before I call the OB for some nausea meds. Thanks!

    I'm not sure...have you just tried your local pharmacy? I think they're called Sea Bands.

    Good luck! It's miserable, although good at the same time!

    I couldn't find them anywhere either, and ended up ordering some off-brand wristbands (Psi Bands) off the internet. Worked just as well, but it took a couple days to actually get them in the mail. I never tried the MS suckers / candies from Babies R Us, but the wrist bands helped me immensely! Good luck, and I hope you move past the MS quickly

    Also preggie pops or any hard candy really can help as well (preggie pops are basically sour hard candy with no medication in it). I got the preggie pop drops. Best wishes.

    Thanks everyone! I did find the Sea Band at Target. They were right between the pregnancy tests and the Pepto which made me laugh . I have had them on for about an hour and I can't tell yet if they are helping.but they are definitely super stylish. I feel like I need a 70's basketball uniform and a fuzzy sweatband to go with them.

    that is funny and yes I agree with the lovely style. Side note too when you said Pepto. That is something that is on my do not take list that I was given by my OB. Hope they work for you! And also you will get some super stylish indents on your wrists where the little ball thing is too. woo hoo lol
