Had a headache for 2 days - Paracetamol doesn't touch the sides and my 4 year old is being high maintenance (for a change hmm).
Any advice on some relief? Or is there anything else I can take?

You should ask your midwife/GP to check your blood pressure and urine. Headache at this stage in pregnancy can be a sign that your BP is higher than it should be. Don't want to panic you, but please get this checked.

Thanks. Didn't realise it was a sign of something sinister blush. Cant get through at the moment but will keep trying.

Call the hospital, the midwifed may house call or ask you in.

I see everyone else has piled in to say call your midwife/delivery suite urgently smile
