I get super car sick and I am not even pregnant. I would say take Bonine before taking long car trips but I am not sure if it would be safe since you are pregnant.

I do get car sick, but it’s much worse while pregnant.  I do feel better when I drive (instead of my husband) and put the air conditioning right in my face, though.

I never got car sick before being pregnant, but now if I sit in the back seat I do.  The front seat doesn’t bother me too much though.

I never got car sick before, but now I feel sick every single time.  I also feel sick on the train to/from work.  Cry

@BoiledPNut:  I have the back seat issue too. The odd thing is, if I’m driving or in the front seat, the motion offsets my morning sickness and I feel a bit better, but I cannot sit in the back.

I get car sick all the time (just as a general condition of my life, not due to anything else). The only time I don’t get motion/car sickness is when I’m driving. Try getting Seabands at Walmart or wherever. They work on accupressure points on your wrist and can really help. Air conditioning or rolling the window down to get some fresh air really help me too. I also carry a bottle of water with me at all times, and taking little sips helps a lot.

I never used to get car sick but now that I’m pregnant, I definitely do suffer from motion sickness in the car.  It got bad once my belly really popped.  I think it is somehow related to the change in your body’s center of gravity while pregnant.  I generally have to drive or just lay down and go to sleep.
