Headaches
 
So I finally started getting those lovely pregnancy headaches, oh joy! Have any of you found a cure to help other then meds?

For me, a small coffee every morning kept them under control. (I would pick a small amount caffeine over actual medication).

Mine get so bad that I HAVE to take two tylenol. I know that it's looked down upon... but good LORD they get bad. I shake, I get nauseated. Thank goodness I haven't had one in a week or so, and I've only had three since I found out I was pregnant.

Magnesium

Give it a try! It's helped me. A friend told me a neurologist told her that magnesium deficiencies are very common in just about everyone and that it tends to manifest as headaches in pregnant women in their second trimesters.

Oh good to know, thanks!

I tried a few sips of a coke yesterday and that took my headache down to about half power. Maybe I should just buy some to keep in the house just in case.

i second the coke...i just sip it slowly to keep it at bay. it doesn't make it go away completely, but it helps enough to justify the sugar/carbonated :yuck: vs. meds.

rest and water and a shower/bath.

water. I started getting them bad and my sister with 4 babies said 'are you drinking your water?' and I started drinking about a gallon a day and the headaches went away.

See that's the thing, I drink SO much water or herbal tea during the day that I pee every 20 min as it is. I don't think water is the problem.

well, just add it up one day. Make sure that it's half your weight in ounces, plus more for pregnancy.

I know that these days I'm drinking more than the average person. But, I also know I'm drinking less than I'm supposed to be.

maybe it's not the water, but atleast you'll know for sure.
