    Does anyone have any experience with Sea Bands travel bands for morning sickness? They work on acupressure.

    My set just turned up and I tore the packet open and put them on straight away. I am hoping they are going to help but wondering if it is just a mental thing - as in I have them on so therefore I will suddenly think I feel less sick.

    Thoughts and experiences?

    Oh and my tub of Preggie Pops turned up too - phew!

    they do work, but you really have to get them in just the right spot so that they are putting pressure on the correct place to control the nausea! so if you find they are not doing anything at all, adjust them slightly around the area where the button bit is meant to go.

    Perhaps mine were in wrong spot but didn't feel they worked for me.

    Look up 'Preggie Pops Drops' on Amazon: they are sour sweets. They temporarily knock the edge of the sickness for me.

    Not sure but I think I may have found a spot that works for the bands! Well I only have one on today and the sickness hasn't been too bad. Either they are working or the sickness is beginning to subside :)

    I bought the Boots version the other day and they've been working for me, only downside is that as no one knows at work yet I can't wear them without having long sleeves on but as it's sweltering in the office as we have no air con and the building seems to suck in heat so I couldn't wear them today, been feeling really rough without them!

    Jenny I have the same issue - can't wear them near anyone who doesn't know! Frustrating!

    Well I have tried wearing them since my nausea hit me, but I can't decide if they do anything. It is very slight if they do work- but acupressure is very specific and maybe I have not got the right spots. As you say wearing them in work is not an option as they attract unwelcome questions.

    I will persevere- see if I find the magic spots x

    They helped me in that when I was wearing them I puked a lot less, but still felt green all the time. It was a god send to have a bit of a break with the puking though, so I loved mine.

    Apparently, the right spot is easily found by putting your thumb and little finger together and follow that line.

    Yes, a few people said they knew I was pregnant at work who spotted them, but tbh, no one said anything til I came clean so it didn't matter!
