Preggie Pops
 
Anyone else try them? I never heard of them before my BFF suggested them on Sunday. I have been so nauseous and they work pretty well for me! I got them at Babies R US. Just thought I'd throw it out there to you other nauseous preggos ;)

I tried the with one of my kids... I think #5, I found them to not help and were over priced. I found jolly ranchers to work better.

This is what I've heard too. However I've never tried either and if m/s is as bad as my pregnancy with DD I will be willing to try anything!

They were expensive but I swear they help me. Maybe because they make me burp a lot?

I think the theory behind them is that when you suck on things it helps nausea. Like my daughter gets really bad motion sickness/carsick, when we are on a longer than normal trip, she had to have mints to suck on.

With baby #6 I found lemon drops to help till a certain point. I thing ginger flavored altoids.

I tried them with my first and couldn't stand the sour flavors. The sweet ones were yummy, but I think any hard candy/lollipop would work though. I just bought some crystallized ginger to have on hand now that I am nauseous. I think I will buy some hard candy mints too. Ginger Altoids sound divine actually. Thanks for the idea Drewbears!

Didn't work with me, but I had hyperemesis gravidarum. Not even surgery worked for me. lol

I have never tried them. I hear that sucking on any candy should help so I am going to try that this time :)

I agree with above. I tried them back in 2005 when I had to order them online for $50 and they didn't really work. During my last pg I tried jolly ranchers and they worked better.

Sometimes bubblegum helped me. Unsalted sunflower seeds would also help but I remember having to eat them SLOWLY, like 1 seed at a time.

I haven't heard of them. I've been sucking on the hard peppermint candies since mint is calming, they actually help some. I haven't braved my way into Babies R Us yet!
