A Morning Sickness Cure – Seriously.

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?
