I've had one all day for the past 3 days. Tylenol gets rid of it for about an hour. I'm not sure what else to do.

Anyone else getting headaches?

I am!!! I was just talking about this to someone at work today. I have been getting them for the past week! I think they're half pregnancy induced and half allergy induced. So frustrating!

I usually just tough them out because even pre-pregnancy, I wasn't a big fan of taking stuff.

Yes I suffer from them about 5 days a week. Some days I can't llook at any screens (tv computer). I was just complaining to my friend the other day and she said during her pregnancy she got a safe prescription from her doc for them. I plan on asking at my appt this week. It starts with a B.

I do a Tylenol, caffeine and avoid screens and bright light. And a lot of water! Good luck.. I'm prone to headaches too, pre- and during pg.

I do, so annoying. I try caffeine and Tylenol, but sometimes neither work.

I suffer from migraines which get more frequent during pregnancy. Unfortunately nothing really works, so I'm on a strong pain killer for when it gets bad.

At least we can commiserate. I have just been roughing it out without Tylenol, upping my water intake and going to bed earlier.

It just sucks when you go to bed with a headache and then wake up with one!!

It also could be stress induced, but I can't really reduce my stress this week , lol. So hopefully it will just go away sooner rather than late!

with my 2nd my neurologist pulled me off work at 13 weeks...

and totally agree, nothing worse than going to bed with a headache and waking up with one. I get a 'double' headache sometimes, in the back of the head/neck from stress (massage usually helps this) and then typical in the temple/behind the eye pounding.

My mw told me to watch out for headaches and migraines during pregnancy as a sign of high blood pressure and pre-eclampsia. Would mention it to your healthcare provider to be safe!

I have been getting pretty bad ones, and I think they might be related to pre pre-e. Been getting pretty high bp readings. I was told I will be taking the 24 hour urine this Wednesday. I almost don't mind the inevitable bp pills. I hear they cut down on these headaches and insomnia.

I get them from spring till end of fall every year. I have bad grass allergies and once people start mowing, my head starts hurting and doesn't stop. I have one pretty much every day. It sucks.

Yes, I get migraines before and during pregnancy. I had a really bad spell of them last week.
Tylenol, caffeine, lots of water and good food.

I'm getting them more frequently last few weeks. Not sure why, but it sucks!

I tend to get headaches and migraines in general. pregnancy sometimes makes them worse. For me at this point all i can do is caffeine and Tylenol. doesn't help much though.

Sorry girl.

Whew... at least I'm not the only one. Thanks for posting. I called in sick today with a headache. I can't stand them and having to work on a computer ALL day long doesn't help... Tylenol didn't seem to help much either. Hoping it goes away for all of us...

Got an icky one yesterday - and I'm not prone to them, so I'm a big baby when it happens.

My husband massaged my temples and sinuses and it helped a great deal. I also took Tylenol, which probably helped.

I'm prone and any kind of regular headache will trigger a migraine. My doc prescribed Fioricet which is a combo of tylenol, caffeine and butalbital. It's a C so I don't really take it, but I did have to recently. It definitely helped. I try Tylenol first and this time, after 2 days of both migraine and tension headaches, I had too. The Fioricet is particularly good for tension headaches.
