    I bought sea bands, which I assume may be the same thing? I found they didnt work for me, but a friend recommended them as they were a "miracle cure" for her.

    Unfortunately not the way I wanted to. I had *some* degree of success with them for travel sickness - I used them for several boat trips in Bali, where I am sure I would have been head over the side, throwing up the whole way - and I managed to not throw up at all, but still felt terrible and nauseous. I tried them for morning sickness - I didn't throw up with them on, but I still felt incredibly nauseous. In fact, when I took them off after about 4-5 hours, I threw up horrendously - then felt much better after. I wasn't game to try them again after that.

    I hope you find something that works for you xx

    No, they did absolutely nothing for me. I even checked with someone trained in acupressure to ensure they were in the right place. They just didn't work for me It sucks.

    I had one when I was pregnant {6 years ago} and it helped keep my food down, but not the nausea.

    However, I'd rather have nausea for a few hours than constantly chucking up my breakfast AND nausea.

    What I found that really, really helped was a daily dose of Rennie in the mornings. That stuff was my personal crack. I always had a box on me, after popping a tab it stopped the nausea within a few minutes.

    It used to have 'recommended calcium supplement for pregnancy' on the box, but I bought a new box recently and it's lacking that bit in the instructions. I hope it's still okay for pregnancy; check with your doctor.

    They definitely helped. Didn't make me feel 100% but made me feel better. I only took them off once, when I was going to see a friend and didn't want to tell her I was pregnant yet...gawd I felt like crap without them!! I never took them off again after that.
    Be warned though...it's how my mum knew I was pregnant! She saw the bands and even though I'd never used them previously she knew what they were for and straight out asked me if I was pregnant! So if you haven't told people make sure you keep them covered.
