Default Seasick and Pregnant. Help!

Hi. Okay, I don't know if am or not, as my husband and I are not planning right now. We decided one last cruise before we start a family, but there is a small chance I may be right now. Didn't test yet, so it is not confirmed. However, I know for a fact get seasick, and bad. Dramamine does not work for me, and since this is my 8th cruise, I know the only thing that really works is the Transderm Scop Patch. My doctor told me I could not use it if I was pregnant (which to me just means a horrible vacation in bed). But I just looked it up online, and there are really no known problems with taking it, but they prefer you don't, "just in case". I was wondering if anyone else may have taken this while pregnant, or if there is anything else you may be able to recommend. Thanks!

Yeah, too late, but it was okay. I am not pregnant so I was able to wear my patch. Now, I will just have to try again, but at least this time I don't have a cruise coming up to worry about. Thanks though!! And I am sure the wristbands will be able to help someone out there!!!
