Ugh, you sound miserable.  So, who can give you a massage?  Will your partner do this for you?  Not just like a 2 minute thing but a nice, long relaxing massage.  What would be REALLY ideal if you can cough up the money and time to do it is a professional massage. They do pregnancy massages.  I had a couple myself.  The knot can cause everything to be tense and then the headache.  Try, actually, an ice pack where it is hurting.  I was told that when I have a bad headache do to a chronic neck issue I have after a car accident to put an ice pack on it.  I do and it does REALLY help.  Not for long, but for say 10 minutes.  Hope it gets better really soon!

When I suffered with migraines in my first pregnancy my Dr told me to try small amounts of caffeine along with heat/cold therapy on my neck. So I would drink a coke a cola every couple of days and it made a huge difference. I would also put a cold compress on the back of my neck. Ask your Dr about the headaches though as it could be a sign of high blood pressure if not maybe they will recommend something similar to the caffeine trick?

What about this . . .  rolling on something.  LOL  Sounds weird but with my neck thing, there were times I'd get headaches and just want relief.  I would take a tennis ball or filled (with lid on tight) water bottle and roll on them.  I'm sure I looked ridiculous but who cares if it helps a little.

I'll try it I don't have a tennis ball but I can try the water bottle I have a massaging thing that I bought from Sam's club it was 200$ you put your arms through the little straps and it'llassage your back neck whatever needs to be massaged. Bit It only relieves it for a minute or 2

What if you just stay in it for a while?  I so feel for you---  I've been there.  Do you think a chiropractor could help you?  I find stretching helps too.  Nice, slow easy stretches of the neck and back and front of chest can release some tension.
