    Hi girls

    I have had a headache for about a week now and its getting worse, i have taken pain killers but nothing seems to be working, its driving me mad!!

    i know its a pregnancy symptom, has anyone else had one that just wont go away? how did you get rid of it in the end?

    Hi Layla,

    I had loads of headaches in my first trimester and have had 2 really bad one's lately. My worst only lasted about 4days though but they make me feel sick and dizzy to the point I can't get up or move my head!! I tried Paracetamol with the early one's but didn't work. And to be honest I haven't found a cure.
    Having a bath and washing my hair made me feel better for a couple of hours after though so give that a go when you just can't take it anymore.
    Good Luck and sorry I can't give you a cure!!

    Hi layla, i too had bad headaches in the first trimester i found that parectemol and a rest on the bed helped a bit!

    also i used 4head which is applied directly to the forehead without the need to use pills ( i used both!!) i found that this helped but it seemed to work better when you feel a headache coming on. An cold eye mask also helps!

    hormones eh?!!!

    Take care and get plently of rest, also drink lots of water, that will help the headaches!

    love steph and bump x

    Hey layla...

    one book that I have says that a cold bath or shower might help as it restricts dilated blood vessels which are causing the pain.

    Hi Layla,

    I found that an ice cold flannel at the back of my neck or on my head was the best thing for me. I had awful headaches at the beginning of the second tri but they seem to have gone so I hope yours hurry up and go too. xxxxxx
