I had a lot of headaches throughout the beginning of this pregnancy. It's only been within the last 3 to 4 weeks that they have started to subside. I took relaxing hot showers, took Tylenol, and laid down with ice on my head until I froze my brain to death! Occasionally I would have to take Fiorcet or Tylox which are both for migraine but prescribed by the OB. The ice really helped though even if I just laid with it on the back of my neck.

i have it almost all the time, and if it starts then it stay for two days for sure. it hurts me more when i have hot showers and sitting idle. lying down does not help. i try to keep myself hydrated and do lots of work when it starts :D, seems to help

I am 17 weeks with twins and have headaches off and on. Sometimes they last for 2 days. I drink plenty of water and eat often, also try to get rest. Sometimes I find that the fresh air helps as well.

I onlly got headaches wehn I was pregnant with my daughter for the frist tri and now I am 25 weeks with a BOY and I am still getting horrible headaches daily, my doc had to subscribe Vicodin to help(which I only take half), Do you know what you are having? Maybe it's cause it's a boy....

I got headaches first tri and now still a little bit in the second tri. It almost feels more like sinus pressure/pain...and tylenol doesnt work. But I think they are less frequent.
