Re: headaches during pregnancy

You mamas are awesome, thank you so much! I wanted to share that I asked our doctor about this as well. She prescribed some meds, but I really hate taking anything, and I can only take it when DH is home to help with DD. Anyhow, she also told me to try caffeine, she said soda isn't a great source of caffeine, that coffee would be better. I don't consume a lot of caffeine regularly, but I went and got myself a mint mocha (yummy, my fav!), and it really helped! Now granted, I couldn't sleep that night and had the worst reflux ever, but it helped with the pain! I think the next headache I'm going to try the wellpatch/gatorade, but wanted to chime in that the caffeine helped .
