    I think they might be. I had no migraines for over a year and now that I'm pregnant, 3 in the last 6 weeks. I'm 14 weeks now, bp was perfect 120/80 yesterday.
    Subbing if anyone has ideas. I spent last night throwing up because of it.

    Yep totally normal. I had never had a migraine before in my life and have had 3 in my first 20 weeks. I checked with my OB and he said it's normal. Just make sure u stay hydrated.

    Hope it goes soon for u, they r horrible.

    Yup normal. If u have a history of migraines, sometimes pregnancy stops u having them altogether, OR they become worse. Unfortunately I'm the latter, sounds like we all are!!

    I had a terrible migraine at work on Tuesday, ended up on the floor of my office with a wet chux on my head & colleges insisting a pharmacist come & check me I was in such a state, so embarrassing! Had an appointment at the hospital yesterday & the doctor said yes it can be quite common due to the hormones but they don't worry about it till after 20 weeks, as the it can be an indicator of pre eclampsia. She gave me a script for panadine forte for the future! Hope yours don't stick around too long!

    I have no history of them until pregnancy, but had many in my first tri. Iwas even hospitalised once. I also found that on days where I drank something sweet and fizzy in the morning, like lemonade or flavoured mineral water, I was less likely to get one. I haven't had one since my first tri (touch wood) and am now 26 weeks, so hang in there!

    You poor thing! I've suffered from migraines for 27 years and I was terrified about getting pregnant because I wouldn't be able to take my imigran, or aspirin. My OB said panadol, panadeine, mersyndol and panadeine forte are fine to take but nothing else. The soluble tablets work the fastest and the best. Mersyndol will knock you out, which is sometimes what's needed.

    Strangely enough, during my pregnancy I've been ok, except the first three weeks of the second trimester when I basically had a migraine every single day. I was working with my sunnies on and drugged up on codeine (well, sort of working anyway). It was awful.

    I really hope it gets better for you!
