I would talk to your OB, they can be normal but it can also be a sign that something in your blood is off

 Ive had them before when pregnant.  I usually take tylenol with caffeine.  Hope you feel better!

They can also prescibe tylonal 3.  We had a plan since I've had migraines for years.  Another med they can give you is Fiorocet it is tylonal, caffine and barbituate.

I see a chiropractor. I had not had one in 8 years. Had my first one for a long time a few months ago. It was due to all the hormone imbalances going on.

I had them with DD thank GOD not this time tho. I had to get a shot at the ER from my OB it was so bad at one point with DD. He ended up giving me a script for  periactin (sp) to take every day to prevent it. I later found out they were being caused by a food allergy  that i developed while preggers and every time i ate chicken I got a severe headache. now I take benadryl if i get a migraine cuz i know i have been exposed to the allergen and the headache goes away with in 30 mins

I had heat induced migraines in the beginnning and there wasn't much I could do I took so much tylenol and it really didn't help,. I hope you find something that will help.

I am 13wks but pregnant with twins- mine got so bad yesterday I had to leave work- they don't ever fully go away and tylenol barely touches them- I usually try to use safe pressure points to alleviate them or a tiny bit of chocolate ( for the caffeine- it has enough for me since I don't drink coffee or cafeinated soda).

Check with your doc to see if there is anything else you can do.
