  • It's a combo of asprin and tylenol plus caffeine. It's not good to take asprin during pregnancy but you have a very low risk. Let your doctor know that you took it and didn't know you were pregnant. It's unlikely that anything is "wrong."

    You can sniff a little cayenne pepper to knock out a migraine in a few seconds. Put a teaspoon in a small jar, close the lid, shake the jar, open the lid, sniff the dust cloud. Head pain gone. Seriously.

  • People have done a lot worse than taking excedrin within the first month before finding out they were pregnant...and thier babies turn out fine. I'm sure it will be okay. I would ask the doc just so you know for certain and she knows about it.
