Hello, this is my first time on here, but I have a question and I don't know if anyone has experienced this severe headache while pregnant. I have had this pounding headache since last night and of course could not sleep because of it. I literally have to hold my head for at least 20 seconds because it feels like my head wants to explode. I took tylenol this morning and still nothing. I am feeling weak as if im catching a cold. Does this sound normal since ive never experienced this before. I also am having lots of pressure in the pelvic area. Someone tell me what they think.
Just try to lie down in a cool dark room. Drinking a lot of water can help. Have you ever heard of those little pots that you use to clear out your sinuses? I wish I could remember the name!!! Anyway, it looks like a little tea pot and you tip your head to one side, pour water into one nostril so it flushes out your sinuses (the water will come out the other nostril---it doesn't hurt). I've heard that that little thing is a miracle worker.
Okay, they are called Neti. It was seen on Oprah www2.oprah.com/health/oz/oz_20070426_350_106.jhtml
Headaches are common and more intense during pregnancy.
