Hey ladies! I have had a terrible headache for the past 3 days. It is so bad, I can feel my heart beating through the top of my head and behind my eyes. I have taken Tylenol, but it doesn't help much at all. Last night, I took a hot shower and just stood under it for a while. That seemed to ease it off, but unfortunately I can't stand in the shower all day. lol Any of you ladies gone through this? What could I do to ease it off? Do I need to call the dr? Thanks! :)

When I have headaches that are longer then one day and things I try have not worked. I see my chiropractor and/or massage therapist. I hope you feel better soon. 

You can try a cold compress over the top of you forehead and rest in a dark room.

Eww that's not fun! I take Ibuprofen (Advil) for headaches, I find that works better, for me anyway, than Tylenol.

My mom suffers from migraines regularly and she said that Excedrin migraine works well for her...of course at the moment I can't really remember what you can and cannot take while pregnant so that would be something to look into.

Are you hydrated?

Yes I drink plenty of water, I actually just had a cup of coffee about 30 min. ago and now my headache is pretty much gone now. I guess I just need some caffeine. Thanks!!

You're not suppose to take Ibuprofen or Aspirin during pregnancy. Just Tylenol.
