Y’all. I have been down for the count for the last 2 weeks with morning (all day) sickness from the sweet baby growing inside me. During my last pregnancy I was really sick from week 5-14. My former OB prescribed Zofran, and it worked to an extent, but I was still pretty miserable. This time the nausea, dizziness, and all around awful kicked in between 7-8 weeks. I went to my new OB, whom I already love, last week and she recommended I try Sea Bands. She also called in a prescription for me because I seemed so doubtful of the bands. Friday night I was really sick and I sent Jed to CVS to get said prescription. It wasn’t there. Out of desperation I had him pick up the Sea Bands. I did not think they would work. At all. But, it was worth a try. The minute I put the 2nd band on, it was miraculous. I immediately felt better. I’m so not kidding. I’ve been wearing them every waking moment since then.
The question I keep asking is, “Why didn’t anyone tell me this last time?” Seriously people, WHY??? So, I’m telling you now. If you are suffering, go NOW and get a pair. We paid $11, but as you can see in the Amazon link below, you can get them for $5-7 online.
This is not a stigmata. Don’t canonize me.
The one negative I’ve found for the Sea Bands is that because the beads are constantly putting pressure on your pressure points they leave a mark on your wrists and can be uncomfortable at first. Trust me when I say I’ve tried every other “morning sickness cure” out there, and this is the only thing that works for me. I’m ok with a little discomfort. Other than that there are no side effects, which cannot be said for any nausea medication. I’m now on day 4 and I hardly notice my Wonder Woman Bracelets of Power any more. Find Sea Bands on Amazon here.
You can buy them off Amazon for $6-7, or at your local CVS for $11.
What morning sickness cures have you tried? What worked for you? What didn’t work?
