Theoretically safe: But maybe the question is why you have such bad, protracted headaches. Have you had a complete evaluation by your ob-gyn and a neurologist? Have you done a head ache diary to try to pinpoint triggers. Remember pregnancy " changes" our bodies to a point and how we react to things.

Probably not problem: Probably not a problem. Speak to your doctor about natural substances such a Vitamin B2, Coenzyme Q10. They should not cause a problem with your baby
