  • I was getting them every single day. Blackout/vomit migraines. Now I have a prescription for Finorinal which is aspirin and caffiene. My OB prescribed it when I was about 12-14 weeks. I also drink caffiene to ward them off so I rarely take my meds now.

  • I had them while I was pregnant and I took Excedrin Migraine (didn't know I shouldn't)--was yelled at my my ob who then told me to drink a cup of coffee and take some tylenol if the tylenol didn't help to take 1 ibuprofen a little later. I wish you luck.

  • i was getting really bad headaches too, now im 21 weeks 4th pregnancy and i wake up with one each morning. i try to use a warm compress and or a hot bath and it ususally helps. a cup of coke or coffee somtimes does the trick. usually an hour after i eat they finally go away.
