God, yes.. I never got them first trimester, once I hit about 18 weeks I had a constant one that lasted like a week so bad I couldnt get out of bed, blood pressure was normal, so I broke down and took some tylenol.. which helped until it went away, then they started coming sporatically.. I'd get one every few days.. they have become less and less frequent, but I have one right now that I've had the last 3 days, I'm SO done with it...

Yes. My last pregnancy as awful. I took Tylenol (which never works) sipped on Coke (literally. 1 12 oz bottle would last up to 3 days). And ate more protein.

I had headaches and migraines. I started taking more vitamin c, mostly eating more oranges. ANd going outside in the morning light, so get morning sunlight directly into your eyes. Also if its a tension headaches I'd get a chriopractor to adjust your neck!

Yes, I got them often.  I'd put a heating pad on my neck, drink a lot of water, and go to the chiropractor.  A lot of it was due to my neck being out of alignment.

 Yes, I always got terrible headaches. I did small amounts of caffeine and made sure I drank enough water.

I have been having tension headaches my entire pregnancy, and most of the time I ignore them. If I cant ignore them then tylenol. Usually water also helps.

I had migraines before I got pregnant and they only got worse during my pregnancy. There were days I could hardly get out of bed. My dr prescribed me Fioricet. She said it was the strongest they could give me while I was pregnant. Sometimes it helps, if I take it soon as I start getting one. Sometimes it doesn't help. If your headaches are that dibilitating, you should ask your dr about prescribing you something. Good luck.
