Dangit...if it's not one thing it's another.  I am just about over my m/s it seems but now have these awful headaches.  I don't remember having them with other kids so I'm open to suggestions as to what you ladies who have them too are doing for relief.  I can't imagine popping a tylenol multiple times a day for months.  Anyone have any other suggestions that actually worked for you?

Drinking enough water, eating enough and small doses of caffeine helped me with mine.  When all else failed (never had much luck with Tylenol), I'd take a hot shower.  But after reading homeopathic remedies, I found that alternating between hot and cold water seemed to kick it better than the straight hot.

I've had headaches as well.  This morning I had a small latte (generally I've been avoiding caffeine) and it kicked in almost immediately and the headache was gone.  Feel a little guilty about the caffeine, but it worked!

I'm in the same position.  My midwife told me to expect headaches, but I get one EVERY day at about 1pm.  I just tollerate it.  I don't take anything.  I'm guessing a warm washcloth or heating pad on low would help, but I'm always at work so I haven't gotten to try it!!
