Hi moms I was wondering if anybody else got migraines while pregnant I get them maybe every 2 weeks. I called my doctor and they said drink caffeine take Tylenol try ice packs or hot packs on head or back of neck and lots of rest so I've been trying that all and I feel like it's not working I get them sometimes they last 1 day or 2 days and I miss work because of these I can't take it! I have anxiety and I used I get them with anxiety and stress but I honestly don't think these are coming from that but maybe I am not having anxiety though I get panic attacks once in a while but not much! I am 10 weeks prego if that helps! Please help I can't do anything with these headaches

I had really bad headaches as well. The house had to be very cold and very dark. I put ice packs on my forehead and took extra strength Tylenol. It was the only safe thing recommended. I didn't want to take any meds but I couldn't take the pain. I'm no doctor but I would recommend a cool dark room with soft meditation music to relax u (bc stress and anxiety will make them worse) and take two extra strength tylenols every 6 hrs until u start to feel better. Oh and make sure u drink LOTS of water! I hope this helps!
