  • This is a question, but I thought I'd ask here since we're all at about the same point in pregnancy.

    I've had a horrible headache all day and can't seem to get rid of it.
    I've been drinking plenty of fluids (mostly water) and Tylenol doesn't work for me.

    Any suggestions? What do all of you take?

  • I believe the only thing that is safe to take is Tylenol. Sometimes when I get a headache it is from lack of caffeine (I usually have one or two cans of coke per day). If it's from sinus pressure, I believe sudafed is ok to take if you really need it. But, you might want to ask your pharmacist or call your Dr.
Thank you DeeElizabeth!

  • I usually do tylenol. Make sure you have plenty of water. Are you overheated? Suffering from allergies? Overtired?
Thank you Valleygirl!

  • I've been getting really bad sinus headaches. I take tylenol and sudafed and it really helps. Also a cold pack to the back of the neck or face helps me....and water like Mel said.
Thank you Mrs.Emily!

  • Thanks ladies! Like I said, Tylenol doesn't work for me, even when I'm not pregnant, and I'm fairly certain it's not a sinus headache (those don't usually make the back of your head hurt do they?) But, I just realized that for the last couple weeks I have been drinking a glass of sweet iced tea everyday and I didn't have one yesterday or today, so maybe it is the caffiene thing. I'm drinking some right now, and I think I'll try the cold pack also. Thanks again!
