I just had to call out for the first time during this pregnancy because of this stupid migraine I can't seem to shake. I'm kind of wondering if it's related to my progesterone because technically the placentas should have taken over by now and I'm still taking my supplements for a few more weeks so maybe I'm overloaded? I have taken Tylenol every 6 hours, been drinking a ton of water....any other suggestions? I've been on the couch all day and I'm over it.

I spoke to my Dr about my migraines at my last appointment and she gave me meds for it. It's fioricet but without the codeine. It works wonders.

I've heard shocking the nerves at the bottom of your skull with a very cold cloth and putting one on the top of your forehead at the same time works. But, I haven't tried it. Tylenol never touches them for me. I usually laid down in the dark, no sound with a cloth on my head and attempted to sleep it off. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. I hope you get relief soon!

Thank you for responding. My kids will be going to bed soon and I am going to try the washcloth. This headache literally came out of nowhere and I was asking my DH to make sure we don't have a carbon monoxide leak....he's like "I'm pretty sure that if we had a carbon monoxide leak, you wouldn't be the only one feeling like death". It was worth a try. Lol.

If you are desperate I would try a can of regular Coca-Cola. I know it isn't the best for you but it helps me when I get them.

My OB's "cocktail" for bad pregnancy headaches is two Tylenol and one Sudafed washed down with a regular coke. Worth a shot!

2 Tylenol and a coke with an ice pack. Best I can do during a pregnancy.

Thank you for all the suggestions. I feel better today after some rest, Tylenol and a coke. I had a rough night last night after finding out a JM mommy from my DDs PR died yesterday morning. Her husband called me at about 9pm and I was bawling my eyes out for hours after which of course made my head feel like exploding. My DH finally made me go to bed at about 1am with a wash cloth on my head. Ugh. I would promise to deal with a headache for the rest of my life with no complaints if she could just come back.

I'm so sorry I've heard about it in two different groups. So sorry for your loss

She was such an amazing person. I've been consumed with thoughts of her all day and frankly I'm pissed that she was taken away from her children. Her daughter is special needs and had all these treatments and surgeries lined up and her husband is worried he won't be able to fill her shoes. Angela was fierce and never took "no" for an answer. I know he can do it, he just needs to have the faith that Angela will guide him.
