I am now 16 weeks pregnant and I suffer from severe migraines. I have suffered for the last five years and of course since finding out I was pregnant I haven't taken any medication except paracetamol which doesn't help anyway. After doing some research on google I found that something that can help is to inhale eucalyptus in the morning to unblock your sinuses and to help the blood flow easier around your body. I do it every morning and it really helps - if I don't do it I get a migraine again. I was telling someone yesterday about this and they said it is not a good idea to inhale eucalyptus as it could be harmful. Now looking at google a lot of people say it is highly toxic and shouldn't be inhaled!? I am so confused and really don't know what to do. I want to do everything to protect my baby and make sure he/she is healthy but I need to also try and keep my migraines at bay. Any help/suggestions please?
