anyone else getting them? I have always gotten bad headaches and often but this pregnancy they are worse and seem to get them daily and once in awhile it will stick around for a couple of days. Today is one of those days..ive had one since yesterday afternoon and its still here almost 48 hours later. My head is throbbing in pain and nothing is helping

Hun I think you need to get that checked. give your doctor a call. Really bad headaches can be a sign of high blood pressure i think. I know that my midwife makes a huge fuss about headaches and wants to know the ins and outs of them to the letter.
If nothing else they might be able to give you some pain meds!
I agree, definitely mention it to your doctor. Headaches are normal during the first trimester of pregnancy and somewhat the last, but definitely not on a regular basis (at least that's what my doctor's always told me)!
My headaches were due to high bp and I had to be put on meds to help prevent any other pre-e symptoms But, I have a high risk for it already having developed it twice before.
I would phone again and stress how painful they are, i dont think any headache should last for 48 hours, even when not pregnant! It doesnt sound normal to me hun. I dont mean to sound ****** about it, but my midwife makes such huge deal about any headache i get and they are fairly chilled about things in general so it makes me think that its pretty important.
are you drinking enough water? thats another thing i get alot of if i mention a headache!
