I was thinking of buying the SeaBands. Does anyone know if they really work for nausea?
SeaBands are the only things that got me through week 6!! I was soooo sick! A few mamas in my town recommended them......and so do I! Good luck!
Im wearing mine now. I dont take them off this is the first day in 2 weeks i havnt thrown up Yay. the bands really work
I actually just bought the sea bands this morning. I didnt wear them yet, since I am at work and have short-sleeves on....people may be wondering why I am wearing them?
I will def wear a long sleeve shirt tomorrow knowing that they will offer some relief.
I didn't see much of a difference with the bands. I am 8 wks and I have had m/s for a good month now. The nausea for me comes in waves all through out the day. I have found the following works best:
I know how miserable the feeling is so I hope this helps! Good luck ;)
The SeaBands are the only thing that worked for me. I tried gingerale, crystallized ginger, crackers, soup, and Preggie Pops. The Preggie Pops work but I was sucking on them all day and they burned my tongue because they're sour! The SeaBands are great and I can actually eat real food (not soup and crackers) again. Try them.
I have been sooooo sick for the past 3 weeks. I tried everything, sea bands, ginger, small meals all day long, saltines, etc. I was at the doctor this week and the nurse told me that I should switch my prenatal vitamin to a prenatal gummie or a flintstone's kids vitamin with folic acid (you have to take 2 of the flintstone vitamins to get the proper amount). She also said to take the vitamin at night with a snack NOT in the morning. I haven't been as sick! I am still exhausted after work and need to lay down for a little bit, but I feel like a whole new person! My husband is happy too because he said he feels like he has his wife back. Last week I would come home from work and go straight to bed because I was so miserable. I honestly felt like I have had the flu for 3 weeks! If you're really sick, it's worth a try. It makes the amount of nauseousness that I feel off and on throughout feel like a cake walk. Good luck!
I'm just over 8 wks and didnt really start having m/s til about 6 wks! Its never as bad as one of my friends had but one thing I've found to help is to eat something FIRST thing in the morning!!! Even if I feel kinda queasy just eating half a banana or small bowl of cold cereal does wonders! And then snack at least once before lunch and again mid-afternoon!
Maybe you all just say I dont have true m/s but this sure wards it off for me and I wish you all luck!!!
First time hearing of this....the nurses as well as my MIL have continued to tell me to try Ginger Ale and crackers and that crap is just not working! I'm def headed out to get these now!! Thanks ladies :)
I'm 8 weeks today, and I've been having horrible "morning sickness" (of the all-day-long variety) for the last two weeks. Eating didn't help, gingerale didn't help, there was absolutely nothing that made it better. I got the Sea Bands the other day and wore them at work yesterday, and they helped a little. I still felt like crap all day long, but I could at least function enough to do my job.
I have found occasionally they can take the edge off but they aren't really enough for me, worth a try though!
Unfortunately, the best thing for me helping morning sickness is getting as much rest as you can. You might find if you have a really busy day you might pay for it the next day. I have found that with my first and current pregnancy. Don't fell bad if you have to say no to things!
Sometimes can be hard this early on though when people don't know :)
