Morning sickness can be the telltale sign of pregnancy that gives you the news you have been waiting for. However, it can also mean the start of hell for others who are now finding themselves in the situation of unplanned pregnancy while struggling to keep down their Weetabix.
For me, the nausea started at 6 weeks and went on for an eternity. Well, 5 weeks, but those weeks felt like a lifetime. Hand on heart, I can honestly feel for you Mama’s out there who are suffering so much worse than me.
Sincerely, I do not know how you are coping…
I was unable to eat properly, which in turn made me tired and irritable. I couldn’t sleep because of nausea.
Consequently, I couldn’t sit at the dinner table with my family because I couldn’t stand the smell of food. As well as struggling to be in the car or in a shopping centre and walk past that horrendously stinking shop, LUSH without gagging. Moreover, feeding the dog required a military operation and just making a cup of coffee for Beard required a bucket nearby… until I was recommended Sea Bands.
Thank you. Thank you for coming to my rescue when I felt alone at sea with no armbands and drowning without a rubber ring in sight!
Initially I was a bit shocked to hear of the price at £9.99. Primarily because I had no idea what they were or what to expect, but for a reusable solution for not only morning sickness, but also travel sickness, I think the price point is spot on.
To be quite honest. I do not care what these little miracles look like, or how long I need to wear them for. All I care about is that they DO work and not only do they work, but they also start to work almost as soon as you put them on.
The idea behind the design is that they provide a pressure point on a specific area of your wrist using a tiny plastic, non-irritating tab and you can wear it all day every day with no side effects. Obviously, because of this “specific point” required to alleviate symptoms, first, you need to find it. Whilst there is a general guide, it may take a bit of perseverance to navigate and solve.
Sea Bands have absolutely changed my life and I love them. Not only do I love them, but my family do too as I’m not walking around the house with a bucket strapped to my hip and constantly going BLEUGGGHHHHH….
