Is anyone else getting headaches? I had quite a few bad ones with Madeleine and a few this time already but the one I've got now I've had since yesterday morning and it's now 10pm and still no sign of going, using a forehead stick and paracetamol but it's literally doing nothing, got to be my worst symptom, that and the nosebleeds which so far only had 2, come back nausea instead!!

star - sorry to hear you're not feeling well. I've only gotten headaches when I don't stay hydrated (which is accompanied by cramps too).. I hope it goes away soon!!

Ashley!!! TWINS!! So amazing! I'm so happy for you dear.

Koj and star I'm excited for your gender scans coming up!

3c I'm with you. My OB is same exact thing. I was under the impression I got ultrasounds every appt but no they check my dang urine every time!

Kj how are you doing? Do you get scanned often bc of twins?

Star before pregnancy I never got a headache but definitely get a few a week now. Unfortunately I haven't found anything to help.

AFM today is 12 weeks! I was so excited as I thought it meant I was in my second trimester but I've learned most say not until 14 weeks. So kind of bummed but I have alot planned the next few weeks.

KJW- Twin club! I have had my moments of being completely terrified, to crying with happiness. How have you been managing?

Star- sorry you are having headaches No fun while being pregnant! I have suffered with migraines and have to take prescription meds for them. Luckily I haven't had any yet. If you are able to take any meds okayed by your doctor, I suggest doing that AND taking a nap. Having suffered migraines all my life, I have figured out that I need to take meds at the first sign of one (and not just try to hold off on the meds to wait it out, it ALWAYS only gets worse) AND taking a nap. Even if I am not tired, this is the only way it will go away for me. A pharmacist also told me to try some caffeine, maybe ask your dr if you feel okay to have a little while pregnant?

Dogmommy- Yay! We are finally here together! LOL Ummm WTF I thought 2nd tri was at 12 weeks. Cripes that is what I count it as hahaha.

AFM- Doing really good. I am so on but I keep worrying that I could have a vanishing twin or lose one. I don't have any signs or symptoms or anything but because I have heard of some people having that, it is always at the back of my mind. I just have a feeling that everything will be okay and I will carry both these babies to term.

Been super tired and I have been taking daily naps.

Thank you ladies

Kj, I will try and drink more, I think sometimes I forget to drink enough

Dogmommy, happy 12 weeks! When is your next scan?

Ashley, sometimes my headaches start with flashing lights which has only happened in pregnancy but then does just feel like a normal headache rather Than a migraine
Funny you should mention caffeine as with Madeleine I figured out the only way paracetamol would work for headaches is to take the paracetamols and have a cup of coffee, I don't go over the recommended limit so just 1-2 a day of instant coffee if I need it, with a toddler up through the night and early morning it's generally needed! I then have decaff or just have decaff if I don't feel I need the caffeine
It's understandable you're nervous, I still am now and only a scan reassures me for a little while , you have more chance of everything being fine so try it to worry and enjoy every moment

Dancing, hope your headache goes too very soon, definitely no fun

Hi ladies

I didn't manage to find heartbeat on Doppler or today, I'm not worried about that because I didn't really expect to but for some reason I'm feeling anxious anyway
Can't explain why, I had a slight bit of pink after we dtd yesterday but I felt this way before that , I didn't phone anyone as this didn't worry me either as it was straight after we dtd and was only once when I wiped, I was just feeling anxious before these things
Arghh I need 16 weeks to hurry up so I can hear the heartbeat and have another scan, I'm going to call the midwife tomorrow anyway for this constant headache so bp can be checked so hopefushe can give me some reassurance if I manage to get hold of anyone!

Hope you're all well?

I have had HORRIFIC headaches and migraines this time around. I suffer from migraines regularly and with Henry I had 2 in the first tri and then none until after I weaned him off breastfeeding. This time I have already had at least 5 migraines in the first trimester + many terrible headaches that last a day or two. Sometimes it is hydration, but other days for sure it isn't. I have slept very poorly and my headaches tend to come as a result of that.

Usually I can take Advil/ibuprofen and that works great but since I can't take it in pregnancy and Tylenol does nothing, it's awful. I did get cleared by Motherisk last time to take my migraine rx meds (rizatriptan) so I take that with a migraine but it leaves me terribly hungover after.

That sounds awful 3c, I was the same with Madeleine, a few bad Ines but they didn't go on for as long as this and only earlier on, the headaches feel the same though which makes me think its hormonal, although more sleep would help!

Yeah I think for me it is a combination of hormones + lack of sleep. Not really sure how to fix either lol.

I have been lucky with the doppler in that I'm finding the HB now each time I try. I have a requisition for a fetal wellbeing ultrasound whenever I feel anxious so I think I'll schedule it for around 14-15 wks just for reassurance.
