It's amazing! I have felt very little nausea since I started wearing them yesterday. I got mine at Walgreen's for $6 I think.

Seriously, for those of you suffering, there's hope!

I tried these in the beginning for my first pregnancy, and after some initial relief (could of just been a 'placebo' if I spelled that right) I didnt notice any help. I was desperate and tried everything I heard about....but nothing really 'did it' for me. nothing. I could of been wearing them wrong, I tired alot of different positions...and they itched and dug into my skin...


I am so ready to give it another try...they say every pregnancy is different so maybe they will click for me this time....

this time I am giving ginger a new try, gunna grab some ginger tea and ginger altoids...and also gunna see the chiro every week in hopes that will help..(my chiro is a good friend, or I otherwise would never be able to afford such frequent visits ) I read regular adjustments ease the morning sickness....

I am not a smoker, but may even try mj if it gets as bad as last time.

but keep the ideas a-comin..

If you guys do get these, they need to be positioned properly. They go in between the two tendons on your arms. It hurts after a while, but I really notice a difference. It takes about an hour for me to tell a difference.

If it is a "placebo" effect, fine with me. As long as I'm not throwing up!
I wonder if there have been any studies on these. I see that they are approved by the FDA; no clue what that means as far as testing goes...
