I get migraines about 2-3 times a year when I am not pregnant, but when I am pregnant I get them almost every week. I have been on Tylenol with codiene as needed with all 4 of my pregnancies and love it. It takes just enough of the edge off for me to function. I only take them when its really bad though, usually dont need more than 20 for the whole pregnancy.

Hot flashes can be normal for some people. As far as the headaches, I've been getting a lot of tension headaches since getting pregnant. Besides tylenol, I've also been using a face mask I picked up at Bath & Body Works years ago that goes in the refrigerator to be nice and cool and then I just put it on my face and feel the pain go completely numb and pretty soon it is much better. I've also been using essential oils that I put a few drops on my pillow as needed and they help me to relax. These can be picked up at Bath & Body Works also.

Same here. I tend to get migranes anyway but hadn't had one in a very long time...until about a week ago when my head seriously felt like it was going to explode!

I didn't have any Tylenol so I used Head-On, a cold washcloth on my neck and drank a diet soda (for the caffeine).
