Pregnancy: More prone to motion sickness?

  1. Hi ladies,

    I'm currently in my 8th week pregnant, and still without any typical pregnancy symptoms (like morning sickness). One thing that I am suffering from though, is motion sickness.

    I ride the train for 1.5 hours each way everyday to school. Overall, the train ride is okay - but within the last 30 minutes in the morning, I feel AWFUL. :sick: I don't actually throw up, I just feel queezy for a little while. I carry saltines and sprite in my bag, but they don't seem to help. Anybody have any suggestions that are baby-safe?

    PS: I am prone to motion sickness on airplanes when I am tired or hungry - but never on trains :shrugs:
  2. I TOTALLY had that :sad:
    The one thing that helped me w/ my last pregnany was ICE cold Lemonade for some reason, I don't know why, but it fixed me everytime.
  3. Try the motion sick bands, for the on pressure points.
  4. Yep, this happened to me too.
  5. I give passengers flat ginger ale on the plane. Maybe candied ginger will help?
