I am preggers too 21 weeks and at 15 weeks started terrible migraines. The pain seems to be in the base of my skull either right or left side depends. For the first time I also have aura without the migraines 1 a week which sucks bc its scary. I had an MRI and all seems to be normal in the brain but, I am sure its something to do with the nerves in my neck or something? Bc I also get weakness, numbness and tingling in my fingers and arms. I did have migraines before I got preggers but, these episodes so often are debilitating. What do you take? I take tylenol which doesnt do much They said 2nd trimester is a breeze, not for me !!! Apparently sometimes for pregnant women that have migraines they flair up. I hope yours get better!!! They suck bc they are scary with these sight effects.....View Thread
