I have been getting them every few days, although sometimes it is several days in a row and it is terrible :/ Since I don't really take any otc pain killers pregnant or not the only thing I have at my disposal is caffeine. It usually helps but I don't always have it around.

I haven't been drinking caffeine since I got pregnant. The caffeine headaches should be gone by now. I've been taking Tylenol when I have homework to get done, or work/school. Other than that - I try to sleep it off.

Yes and I had to ask for something. Tylenol does not touch them and they're getting to migraine level. I have a child at home still and it's not easy to lay down and relax with him to try and get it. He's anti-naps now.

So I had to ask for something that would help. And it does, I only take it however when they're to the point of being able to function isn't going to happen.

If you're ever in a pinch you could try a little caffeine; it's actually one of the ingredients in Excedrin. My doc recommended it to me and I was skeptical it would work but it often does...I rarely drink anything with caffeine though so that might be why it helps.

I'm sorry Glad you got something for it though. I've only had 1 migraine in my life and it was so bad I couldn't really function.

I've had this problem for a month or so now. Sounds like I might be getting away lucky though as mine are there and super annoying but not painful enough that I have to take something. I'm sorry to anyone whos dealing with that!

I get headaches daily. Sometimes they last more than a day. I got phenergan for nausea and headaches at my last appointment. It makes me feel really drowsy and I pass out feeling drunk. I can't afford headaches with two kids at home and two more school aged kids. And my husband is an ******* and never thinks my headaches are real or as bad as I say they are. Nothing helps. Even when I sleep I can feel the pressure causing insomnia. I didn't really drink caffeine before I got pregnant and I still only have a few caffeinated drinks every once in a while.

I do Tylenol and some caffeine (pop or coffee). I get them almost daily but have a history of migraines so I like to catch them early since I cannot take any of the good migraine medicine right now.

Thanks. I cut caffeine out about 3 years ago and that doesn't even help. Excedrin migraine helped heaps but since I can't take it, I tried tylenol. Then I started feeling like I was taking too much to compensate to try to get rid of it. So I knew I had to ask for something else. Migraines are horrible. Then add on my super rambunctious 3 year old on top of it right now, it feels like several atom bombs have gone off in my head :/

But I'm very thankful I'm able to manage them now!

Glad I'm not alone!!! Soo terrible a lot of mine are turning into migraines I try not to take anything but I have to function my hubby is deployed and my son is 15 months old and needs my attention occasionally I take Tylenol or drink some tea to help. A lot of the time I wake up in the middle of the night with a splitting head ache.
