  • I had 3 to 5 migraines a month before getting pregnant so of course I was "blessed" with more during. I just try to drink TONS of water (sometimes so much that you'd think it would kill you). Also, keep lots of ice packs in the freezer. An ice pack on the migraine pain center in a hot shower seems to be the only thing that eases the pain.

  • Are you drinking enough water, taking enough magnesium?

  • I do but i get them even when im not pregnant. There isnt much you can do about it. Try drinking some caffeine and laying down in a dark quiet room.
