So, I have been having really bad headaches ever since I got pregnant and I won't take medicine even if it is pregnancy safe. I never had them with my first child so I was wondering if there is any other way to get rid of them and I can't take a nap either cause I take care of my daughter during the day.....if you have any advice i would really appreciate it.

Maybe you can run the shower on the highest possible in your bathroom and sit in there for a little while (in the room not the shower itself lol) and see if that helps at all.

if you can find peppermint essential oil you can massage just a dab into your temples, sometimes just smelling it will open your senses and help. I have also used excedrin tension headache med. it is asprin free, and as long as you only take one and don't have anymore caffine for the day it won't hurt the baby. I always drink a glass or two of water and have a small snack before trying anything, sometimes dehydration or hunger is the problem. If your headaches continue talk with your doc or mid-wife to see what is safe for you and baby.
