My first pregnancy was textbook. In my 2nd pregnancy I developed excruciating headaches around the 5th week. In my 12th week I went for a sonagram (Army will not do it earlier) & they found no heartbeat - later discovered the gestational sac had not developed beyond 6 weeks. My hormone levels continued to climb & my pregnancy looked like I was 3 months. Eventually had to have a D&C. I am pregnant again. I am 5 weeks 3 days pregnant & today the headaches have started. I know the heartbeat starts at this time. The doctor (we have one OB/GYN) on base, just says take Tylenol (one tried to give me Vicodin) & are very unconcerned. Doctors off base are not an option.
Tylenol is good. Tylenol 3's are ok if you can get a doctor to prescribe them, but army doctors are mostly dumb as hell. Are you drinking caffeine? I know some doctors will recommend a little caffeine to help with the headaches and it works sometimes.
