Tylenol is safe during pregnancy. I use a ice pack on my head when it hurts. Just lay in a dark room with the ice pack and sleep for a few hours

You can take tylenol but if it doesnt go away even if you do you need to go to the doctor because it could be your blood pressure, another thing that helped me was robitussin for a cold but it was the only thing that worked for my migraines and i took it even if i didnt have a cold.

Try drinking half a can of coke or something with caffeine in it. It will help.

You need to take some Tylenol and see if it goes away with that.  If it doesn't then you need to call the doctor because you could have dangerously high blood pressure, which would do more damage to your baby than a couple of Tylenol.  Good luck!

drink water. it's easy to get dehydrated when pregnant. so drink lots of water, and take tylenol if you need to.

That's not a very healthy recommendation. If you are going through caffeine withdrawals, then a headache for a few days is normal, but it will pass. Best thing to do is deal with it.
