Headaches

Howdy!
I am about 14 weeks. I have been getting these headaches that come and go and since all we PG woman can take is Tylenol - (which doesn't work for me at all!) - I am wondering if anyone else has a "trick" that works for them more than that. (But is safe). Also, the DR told me they are increases and decreases in hormones as a result of the pregnancy - if anyone else has had this - when did they start to go away????

Re: Headaches

I remember going straight from morning sickness to migraines. I took tylenol and tried to get more sleep but for the most part I ended up just going through it. Hope it goes away soon for you. If I remember right it eased off by the third trimester. LOL, all the fun stuff I get to look forward too once again. I'm in my 5th week now and all is well, still no morning sickness. I enjoy hearing how you are doing, it also prepares me for whats soon to come. Goodluck, and take care.

Re: Headaches

Are you going to find out what you are going to have when you are able to?

Re: Headaches

If you have to use vicodin or tylenol w/ codeine, it is ok. Doc's say they prescribe it all the time. I used vicodin about once a week during the end of my 1st trimester and throughout my second. Ultrasounds have all come back ok. Doc's promise me it is ok. I badger them to death about meds. Good luck with the pregnancies
