Turns out my Mum and one of my sisters are the same. Mum spent her whole life getting them and I told her about drinking coffee so she started (never drank it before) and her migraines started being less of a problem.

I agree with elleandsam with taking magnesium supplements

Magnesium supplements helped me and I was also recommended to try Vitamin B (12?) for the nausea that I get with the migraine.
Hope you find something that helps (and that is suitable to take whilst pregnant) - its no fun coping with migraines at the best of times...

In year 12 and throughout uni I suffered migraines, assumed it was FROM the coffee ( I wasn't a heavy drinker, a couple a day) but cut them out, thinking they caused the migraines.
And assuming it was withdrawls from the coffee.
And also assumed it was the pill, which I haven't used for years.
Have suffered with them in frst 16-20 week of pregnancy both times.
After first son I had them for months (assuming hormone changes with BF, co-sleeping putting my neck out, lack of sleep etc).
But mine sound so similar to yours.
I get the aura, and i know its coming, say I'll be watching tv, it's like I look at the tc but can't focus on it, then comes the zigzags that grow til they take over both eyes. can last up to about 30 minutes with aura then it goes, and usually am left with the headache/yuck feeling. I don't get tehm as debilitating as some people do though.
The only times they have made me vomit was in my first pregnancy.
OP sorry not much advice, maybe see a chiro, try the supps, I am a regular tea drinker these days (since not drinking coffee), hopefully the hormones settle for you and you get some relief.

Mine are definately hormone related, the sound EXACTLY like BMJ's. I know if i suspect I ham getting one I have to leave where I am straight away to get home, or I will be stuck. Then the after a while the aura starts to fade and it feels like someone has stuck a dagger through my eye, diagonally through to the base of my skull on the other side
I havent had one in about a year. It appears mine have always been triggered by some foods as well. They decreased substantially after removing artificial sweetner from my diet (from 2 a week, to about once a fortnight) then i went off the pill. After I had my last bub I got an IUD and started getting them once a week again. I have also cut gluten from my diet as well, which i think helps.
The only time I get them now is if I have Coke/Pepsi etc, I suspect its the preservatives.
Good luck, I hope you find something that helps you. Migraines are the worst

I use to get 5 a week, but have cut gluten out of my diet and lactose to a degree, I get maybe 1 every 2/3 mths now.
They are horrible, and unless you have had one no one knows the pain they cause.
