  • I would say it's a gimmick, but let's wait to see what other responses you get.

  • Is it a pair of seabands? Elastic bracelets with a small plastic ball that presses on the nerve in the wrist that connects to the inner ear? I've used those with some success for motion sickness, and they were originally invented for sailors who got seasick. I wouldn't say they're a cure-all, and they didn't keep me from vomiting for months on end when I was pregnant, but they might help with mild to moderate nausea.

  • I used the seabands when I went on a cruise. They worked for that, but not when I was pregnant. If you have light nausea it might help, I vomited the entire 9 months and went through multiple meds before finding one that worked enough that I only got sick once/day instead of all day.

  • My daughter says they help with motion sickness. Have you tried the preggo pops? You can also try sniffing a lemon. You don't have to eat it, just cut it open and smell it.

  • Waste of money, IMO. If I knew where mine were, I'd offer to send 'em to ya so you wouldn't have to waste your own money in order to try it out. I get horrible nausea when I'm pregnant, and someone recommended I try them, but it didn't work at all. The medication the doctor gave me didn't help either.
