I'm 16 wks. I have the worst headaches ever. My head starts throbbing, I feel dizzy, faint, and like I'm gonna throw up. They are soo bad. I have been drinking 12 glasses of water a day and getting plenty of meat. I am seeing the dr today. I just hope I don't have a dizzy spell during the drive there. I've tried taking tylonal it doesn't help. Any advice until I see him.

are you having vision problems? sounds like it could be high blood pressure. I'd go get it checked out.

I'm sleeping fine for the most part except I loose feeling in my leg sometimes. I'm not really having vision problems. I mean it gets hard to see when ur dizzy. I use to take Prozac for headaches it worked very well but I stopped taking it do to the pregnancy. I've heard of drs telling moms to continue to take it but I'm just scared to put anything other then tylonal and prenatal in my body.

I agree its blood pressure related. Everytime my bp is high the first thing my nurse asks me is "Are you having headaches."

I get paralyzing migraines to the point I can't take care of my son so my doc gave me fioricet.it works in 20 mins as soon as I feel a twinge I take it and I'm fine.and it is safe for baby too.I'd talk to ur doc about it.having to suffer is worse than taking a pill for it imo.GL
