Yes i am 5 months and my head and teeth are giving me hell. Between the two i would take giveing birth. I don't like taking to much of anything for the pain because i feel as if i am druging my baby.

I have never had an issue with headaches--pre pregnancy or during. I will be 38 weeks tomorrow and I have an on again, off again headache for the last 2 days. It comes and goes. I have taken Tylenol, drank some caffeine, laid in the dark, took a nap...I would hate to call my OB tomorrow for a headache, but not too sure if this is normal? I feel like I'm getting paranoid because I'm so ready to be finished with pregnancy. :(

I did Tylenol or sipped a coca cola... If that was no help I took the prescription headache medicine that my ob prescribed. I've had them since the beginning but they're not as frequent now, thankfully.

I got a migrain today, took tylenol and tried to sleep, I just rested a long time and it went to a dull thing. Earlier on I was having a headache every morning when I woke up, I just dealt with it. Tell ur ob they will help u

I had a migrane that lasted for 3 wks. No joke. It only let up when I started taking 500mg of magnesium everyday with my prenatal. Its been 2 wks and I haven't had one since.

I had them bad :( still get them maybe once per week but it has let up quite  a bit. I took hot showers, used tylenol, sipped on a little caffeine, and mainly suffered through them.

Headaches in pregnancy can just be "one of those things" but if they are newly experienced by you, why not call your health care team and let them know.  

Don't ever hesitate to call your doctor, midwife or health care team with any questions or concerns you may have or comments you don't understand. They are there to educate and inform you ~ that's their job!!! And always ~ and trust your gut...xo
