    With my first I got them all the time thought for sure I was gonna have a stroke. This time not so much but I do still get them about twice a month and they last for about 3 days. It's just the hormones throughout your body sometimes they get better and you have none or you get them a lot more then normal.

    For about 4 months in the middle of pregnancy I was getting terrible headaches every day which would occasionally turn into a migraine. Thankfully they have eased off now. I think you should mention it to your midwife though, just in case it's a blood pressure thing. I know how hard it makes things and hope they stop for you soon too :hugs:

    Eugh, can definitely relate to this one!

    Last Wednesday I got my first migraine with aura any I actually thought I was either dying or having a stroke, so scary :cry: I lay down and the aura passed after about 20 minutes and I was left with a blinding headache and nausea.

    Then I had another one on Thursday, nothing on Friday, one on Saturday and TWO on Sunday!! Ended up seeing the emergency doctor on Sunday and had my blood and urine tested - both were fine.

    And since then... nothing! However I'm now living in fear of my next one which is not nice :nope:

    I have read up a lot on the internet and there doesn't seem to be any cause or prevention of these horrible episodes but a lot of sites do blame pregnancy hormones for an increase in migraines. A girl I work with suffered the same from about 7 months and she said that as soon as she had her baby they stopped.

    Sorry can't offer much advice - just wanted you to know you're not alone :hugs:
