Exclamation "Motion Sick" bands

Has anyone tried them? Do they actually work?

I know the Duggars use them and they are supposed to be good for any type of nautiousness (sp?), but seriously, do they work? If so, I wanna use them for Douglas when we travel in winter (that's the only time he gets car sick, is in the winter... very strange, if you ask me!) and I also wanna try them next time I get pg (I only get nautious, haven't gotten sick yet
but I kinda wanna keep it that way too, as well as get rid of the sick feeling!)

I picked up some last Friday when I could no longer stand the 24/7 nausea and they did ease it, they can get tight the longer you leave them on so you will have to take them off after a while but I did notice a difference. My nausea is easing up a little bit so I only put them on when I feel really bad because the bands I use are black and I have them on my wrists and they are quite obvious what they are and I don't want anyone guessing I'm pregnant yet (until after next week when we get our ultrasound to confirm bean is growing) so I usually wear them in the house. so basically yes they do work

I'm afraid that these things tend to fall into the 'woo woo' category. Unless there has been some serious scientific research done that I am unaware of!

I actually use them and they work. I use them when I go in a boat (otherwise I am barfing).
I have also used them when I was pg. They seem more effective for the boat rides than the pg nausea, but they did take the edge off the nausea when I was pg with both babies. Hope that helps. Hey, maybe it's all psychological but I don't care, it works for me.
Good luck!

I'm 9 weeks pregnant with my 3rd baby. I have been terribly sick since about 6 weeks pregnant. I have been using the wristbands for the last 1 1/2 weeks and they make a slight difference, but I still no miracle cure. The doctor just gave me a prescription for Zofran. Anyone have any opinions about that medication???
