Has anyone had this happen?

I'm 20 weeks pregnant. My SO & I have been fighting on and off all day today. Now I have a terrible headache and my baby girl just won't stop kicking me. Is this normal? I don't remember much about my first pregnancy, and how fighting with my (then) SO affected my oldest daughter. And would it be safe to take an excedrin (or 2), or would it harm my baby?

  • I'm sorry. I don't remember if that ever happened when I was pregnant. I'm not sure that I would take excedrin. Here's what Excedrine's website says about it: "If pregnant or breast-feeding, ask a health professional before use. It is especially important not to use aspirin during the last 3 months of pregnancy unless definitely directed to do so by a doctor because it may cause problems in the unborn child or complications during delivery."
