  • i had terrible migraines my whole pregnancy. nothing i could do about it. i just had to deal with it, since you shouldnt take any medicine when pregnant.

    try to relax, get some sleep... your doc will just give you some medicine anyway. not much you can do about it. sorry.

  • Better safe than sorry, call the doc and see what they recommend. Sometimes headaches can be a sign, sometimes they are just form hormones. I actually had less headaches during pregnancy while other people start to get migraine while pregnant.

  • I was just at the Doc yesterday and i had the same thing at about 15 weeks.. i had a migrane for oever a week and then it just stopped and i have been fine since.. im 20 weeks now.. But he said to take luke warm showers or baths and lay down with a rag on your head or even covering your face for a minute... Try to lay down in the dark all alone.. Good luck.. he also said there isnt much they can do but if it does get worse and wont go away then i would call to see what your dr thinks!

  • thanks everyone, i did take some tylenol and it helped a little bit.. it has been off and on all day long today. I will probably just bring it up to him at my next visit. I also have been doing the bath and cold washcloth on my head as well! Thank you all very much! Hopefully these headaches will go away soon : )
