<p>I used SeaBands with both of my pregnancies.  They didn't relieve ALL my (constant) nausea, but they definitely took the edge off enough so that I could function.</p>

<p>I bought them at Target.</p>

<p>I use Seabands. I struggle with constant all day nausea. They do help but aren't a miracle cure for me. Like the pp said they take the edge off. I still have nausea but I can be upright if I'm wearing them. Without them I'd be writhing around on our bed wishing I would just be sick already. :p  </p>

<p>I tried both SeaBands and PsiBands. I purchased the SeaBands first, loved them for the relief but hated the fact that they would get dirty easily and also stretched out and didn't work worth a crap after about 2 weeks. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I then found PsiBands which are adjustable, washable and plastic, so I could wear them in the shower and torque them down if things got really bad. I would definitely spend the extra $4 dollars over the SeaBands and get them. </p>

<p>I wore the Seabands with my last pregnancy and I am wearing them again.  I agree with the others that said they aren't a miracle cure, but they do seem to take the edge off.  I have also realized that if I wear them constantly it's almost like my body gets too used to them, so I try to take them off for a couple hours every once in a while then put them back on.  It seems to help!</p>

<p>I used SeaBands almost all of first trimester.  Only threw up once.  I don't know if I would've puked more without them or not since this was a first pregnancy though.  I definitely noticed a difference in my nausea when I wore them.  Not perfect, but better than nothing for me.</p>
