Well, I've been migraine free through this whole pregnancy until the last week when I've gotten 3. Does anyone else get them? Should I be worried that I'm getting them? Should I let my OB know? Basically what I'm doing to treat them is drinking a pop with caffeine, taking 2 Tylenol, and laying down. Any insights into prevention or treatment would be greatly appreciated.

Oh god, I had them EVERY DAY for about 10 weeks straight with the twins. It was awful. At first I was just using Tyelnol but that stopped working. My OB said I could take Exedrin Tension Headache everyday if I needed to, or the Migraine version once in a while. I took the Tension Headache every day with a cold fountain coke every single day, usually mid morning. I took it the minute I started feeling it coming on and then followed with lots of water. It did the trick for me and kept them mostly at bay until I outgrew them. Hope they go away soon!

I hope you find relief. As a chronic migraine sufferer I know how badly it knocks you down, and adding pregnancy makes it harder. I haven't had any during this pg (knock on wood) but I hope you find that much-needed relief.

It could be normal. But I'd still let my OB know, especially if it's a regular occurrence. I hope you can get a handle on them. :)

I started getting migraines rather early. At my 6 or 8 week appt the dr prescribed me something because Tylenol wasn't working. Now they are down to 1-2 a wee so I am back to just using Tylenol and some caffeine.

I wish I knew how to avoid them. But they are normal.
