    I complained of this to my mw last week. She said its very common at this stage and all we can do is keep hydrated and take paracetamol. The paracetamol are just taking the edge off enough for me to get on with stuff and go to work but I still feel pretty crap.
    Big hugs :hugs:

    I find the cooling strips you can buy for headaches/migraines rather good - better than flannels as you can actually sit up and move around with them attached!

    I had a 3 week headache on and off around 15/16 weeks pregnant and it's finally gone. So there is hope!

    I also have this terribly, every single day, and mentioned it to my MW.
    As long as your blood pressure is okay (be sure to ask during your 16 week visit if you haven't had it already) then it's just the case of staying hydrated and paracetamol, yep. Hopefully it's just the heat making it play up for you at the moment rather than hormones so they'll go away as fast as they've come! x
