Migraines and pregnancy, how bad does it get?

All my life I've suffered from migraines. Now I am becoming a single mom, 9 weeks pregnant. I can't afford not to work but my migraines are getting the best of me. I've thrown-up twice at work so far, and I cant stand it! I was told I can take tylonol but towards my migrains, it does nothing. Has anyone gone through migraines through pregnancy and have any advice?

  • My mid wife put me on a medication to take only when I feel one coming on, its called fioricet. It worked for me. Google it and ask your Dr. I dont work outside the home but a migrain plus a 2 3 and 8 year old is rough!!
