Tylenol is safe during pregnancy. but for me it did nothing for migraines. I went to my chiropractor and massage when that bit of extra was needed. Hope you feel better soon.

Cold compress, dim the lights if you can.

 My doctor told me that there is a prescription she could give me if I need it but I haven't had one yet (thank God) so I would talk to your doctor. over the counter the only thing is Tylenol. Hope you feel better

I've heard tylenol, but I know more water usually helps me.

I'll second the chiropractor.  That or acupuncture.

It depends on your resources.  Acupuncture is $80 a time here.  Flex-spending will cover it, but sometimes you are already exhuasting that with the birth.  

Chiropractor can be covered with most insurances, but they limit the number of visits and I know we have a $60 co-pay each time.  Again, flex-spending covers it....but it can go fast. 

Honestly, going to the chiro hasn't helped my migraines.  

I need heat and a dark room.  

I also take Fiorcet when I have to.  First I try tylenol.  Next I try Benadryl (just one, easier to function).  I try caffine with the Benadryl.  

If those things haven't worked, it's time for Fiorcet.
