Headaches are fairly normal in pregnancy. Sounds like you are getting them worse than most people. I would have also thought it was blood pressure related however since that isn't the case I would suggest small frequent meals, LOTS of water and when needed Tylenol. Also try a cool damp cloth across your forehead or eyes or the base of your neck, lay in a cool dark QUIET room when the headaches come on. Also caffeine can help so a cup of coffee or can of soda. It could be blood sugar related or just the usual hormones to blame. Just try not to exceed 200mg of caffeine per day. Dehydration is another culprit to headaches in pregnancy so water water water. Feel better!
