  • You can take Tylenol, just regular though don't go extra strength.

  • Don't take asprin. You can take tylenol. I'm not sure about ibuprofen.

  • Take Tylenol, and try to lay down in a dark, cool room with a cold (wet) washcloth over your forehead and eyes. I do this when I have a migraine. Not being pregnant, I use extra strength Excedrin. It  works better than Tylenol.

  • If you're having a sinus headache, which i get, I would do a sinus rinse. It's completely safe and you don't have to worry about if you're going to harm your baby.

  • honey? Are you sure its not a caffeine headache? When I figured out i was pg I was like ok no more Pepsi and went cold turkey. And bam my head wailed on me for 2 days straight I called my doc and she was like so what did you change and I told her and she said go get 1 pepsi cuz 1 is better then that aspirin you almost took :) Try calling your doc too maybe there is something she can help you with? And long hot baths rock!!
