    At 11 weeks I know I should soon be getting to the point where I shouldn't be worrying about morning sickness but as it happens, it's decided to peak these last 2 weeks & I'm going away thus weekend so I've decided to try some methods out. Ginger biscuits do not work for me at all, so my next step is travel sickness bands. As I used to get slight travel sickness I'm rather worried about going on a long car journey this weekend with the MS aswell! previously as I wasn't pregnant I'd just get travel sickness tablets or use hayfever tablets (they worked too) but obviously these are a no-no now soooo... Has anyone tried this method? Does it work...

    I worked with a woman that swears by them, but I didn't talk to her about it much then. When she told me about it I wasn't pg and had no idea how bad MS would be. She doesn't work with me anymore, but that's the only experience I have with anyone using them. If they work, please tell me. I feel like my MS has progressively gotten worse, and the last 4 days are unbelievable. I feel soooooo sick all the time, morning, noon, night, etc. Looks like we are just about the same DD, give or take a day. Have you noticed the MS has gotten worse this week too?

    Tried them, didn't work, you might try pressing the acupressure points they stimulate on your forearms to see if that brings any relief as a trial . . . .

    Ah looks pretty hit or miss. I'll give them a go still & see if they work for me, hope they do :thumbup:

    W8ing4ours, yeah it has def got worse this week. I did have a couple of days couple of weeks ago where it just disappeared completely & I was like YES it's gone but then it came back with a vengeance. Silly thing.
