Hi lils, I did have headaches after my second child was born. They were the worst. Some times when we get those kinds of headaches, it's because we're tired. Your baby is brand new just like mine. As a matter of fact my headaches started when my daughter was around three weeks old. I was stressed, and really tired. I decided one Thursday evening that I wasn't going to do anything else for the rest of the weekend but rest! I did that, and felt better. I'm still tired, (have a two year old also) but the headaches are less when I take the time to rest... Hope you feel better

HI.
I too have been suffering bad headaches, my son is now 4 months old and for the past 6-7 weeks have had bad headaches everyday and just feeling c___p, i was terrified that i had a brain tumour, turns out i have postnatal depression and i am anaemic, thats what was causing my symptoms, dont leave it go to doctors to get it sorted. you will feel better after, promise, i know how you feel x take care

Hi I have headaches too but I blame it on allergies and being tired. My ds is a little over 6 weeks old. I used to take zoloft but went off it before I got prego. I'm sure you're fine, try not to worry!

Did you have an epidural or a spinal? If so it could be from that. I had the worst migraine for 6 straight days after my son was born.

Rachel D...I had that too. They can fix it with a procedure called a blood patch. They told me the migraine might last 6 weeks without the procedure, so I had it done...instant relief. I didn't get a spinal headache when I had my second baby.

epidural or dehydration may be the cause. dont rule out those fluctuating hormones, they are a killer.
