Tylenol. On a normal basis, when I am not pregnant, I would have to take something stronger than that in order to help a migraine or a headache. But thankfully pregnancy allows Tylenol to work for me. I do that and I get a cold wash cloth and put it on my forehead along with drinking cold water. All that in combination is what works for me.

Yea, I just happened to luck out that Tylenol has been helping. I am always hesitant on prescriptions while pregnant. But I do google the prescription first and research as much as I can about it just to ensure myself that it is safe. My Doctor from my first pregnancy told me I could take allegra to help my allergies. but come to find that allegra has not officially been tested for pregnancy enough to make it safe. So what I would do is get the prescription but research it first to just double check. But if you are comfortable with your doc's words then by all means. I am not trying to scare you but am trying to give you a perspective. Good luck!

Chiropractor and massage if I need it. What my chiropractor had me do was write a journal about foods/drinks and when I had a headache and migraine. Found out to much caffeine does it for me. Which my Dr never had me do. They just handed me prescriptions that never helped.

I usually just stick with tylenol, and hot tea. It usually works. If the headache persists, warmer baths in low light help relieve alot of the pressure in my head.

Tylenol with a cup of coffee. The caffeine increases its effectiveness.
