I too have migranes.  During the first trimester I got a few (though none quite as bad as before pregnancy).  I used caffeine and tylenol, which worked variable and just gutted it out… though I know a few people that used a narcotic when absolutely necessary.  Second and third trimester I had none, but now they are back with a vengence!

Ooohh I was with a patient this week who had some great ideas about treatment for migraines! She says O2 helps her tremendously she has her tank her doc rx’d and she also uses a lidocaine solution that she puts in her nasal cavity that works very quickly, she said just keep it from going down the back of the throat. Both ideas very unconventional but should be very safe during pregnancy and/or breastfeeding! Was personally very excited, as my worst migraine to date was on my fertility hormones and was afraid to take any of my imitrex and I will be going on them again next month. As always talk with your doctor first but for me any out of the box ideas are a good start!

@colors: no advice here, just lots of sympathy – that must be so tough to deal with normally, I can’t imagine it while pregnant!!
