Yes: A lot of motion sickness medications are safe in pregnancy. Meclizine and dramamine (dimenhydrinate) are both class b which are safe in pregnancy. Wrist bands that are used for motion sickness are also totally safe in pregnancy. This is a really hard topic as most women are a little nauseated in pregnancy and travel doesn't make that better. Good luck!

Ginger: This is not an official medical recommendation because it hasn't been scientifically proven but one common folk remedy is to consume very small quantities of ginger - either extract or the raw root. It settles the stomach. You may still feel dizzy though.
