Ginger / Herbal:  Ginger and other Herbs are natural products that have been used throughout history to ease symptoms of morning sickness.  The government does not regulate these products as they do with prescription medications.  Although the government does not regulate these products, there is no evidence that ginger causes any problems if taken during pregnancy for the moderate relief of nausea or vomiting.  As always, check with your doctor before taking any medication during your pregnancy.

Acupressure: Acupressure is applied by stimulating the P6 point on your wrist.  This stimulation blocks the nausea signal from going to the brain.  This is accomplished by wearing a bracelet with a button that stimulates the P6 point on the underside of your wrist.  This can be very effective on some women but does not work on every expectant mother.
