  • Drink LOTS of water. You may just be dehydrated. Try some caffine as well. Short of taking some tylenol your options are limited.

  • I agree with the water. It could be because you are dehydrated. They do say Tylenol is the only safe thing to take while you are pregnant. But if you are concerned you can call your doc's office back and tell them you are not feeling better and you hate taking the Tylenol. My pharmacist was very helpful too. I would ask them questions I had and they were very helpful.

  • Water and/or salt. Drink some water and eat a couple potato chips. Could be your electrolytes are off.
