  • how far along are you?? headaches are normal during pregnacy due to the hormone levels. I got pretty bad ones at the end of my 1st tri and the begining of 2nd trimester.

  • did you drink caffeine before getting pregnant and then stopped drinking any caffeine after you found out? if yes, then drink some caffeine... I drank 1 20oz pepsi through out the day while pregnant.

  • Are you pregnant or just delivered? If you just delivered, it is your hormones balancing out and you should really take something. I think if you just had a baby you can take Advil. If you are still pregnant, take Tylenol. headaches are a very normal part of pregnancy. Anon is also right - what is your normal caffeine intake? You might need to have a cup of coffee or a can of soda.

  • yeah I get headaches too.... sometimes unbareable !!!!!!Doctor told me take tylenol but that didnt seem to work the headache would just come right back!!!! I even went to get a second opinion from another doctor and he said I was suffering from depression which I didnt feel at all depressed!!! I didnt know what the heck was going with me by then!!! People still advised me that this sometimes happens while your pregnant so I just have to deal with it......your not alone!!!! I take tylenol every day sometimes it dont work so I take more. I wish there was more the doc's could do for us!
