I am 7 weeks into my pregnancy-anyone else experience headaches in the morning? I don't have morning sickness-just tired and slight headaches-is this normal? It's my first pregnancy so I have lots of questions! thanks

To Catrina...I suffer from major headaches all the time, since 1988 due to a bad car accident. But since I have been pregnant they have gotten alot worse. I am 18 weeks pregnant right now.I don't know about you but my headaches last all day long, they are sure a pain in the b___t. If you have any questions just ask, I will be happy to help you out. I wish you the best and good luck.

Hi Allie-Congratulations on your pregnancy-is this your first? My headaches make me want to just go to sleep! it's been occurring for about a week now but it's been everyday. Thanks for responding so fast! I'm sure I have tons of questions especially because my dr won't see me for another week!

I started having headaches around my 6th week. My doctor said it could be a sign of dehydration or high blood pressure. Try drinking lots of water and taking 2 tylenol. Worked for me. I haven't had a headache since I doubled my water intake.

To Catrina...Thank you and congratulations on your pregnancy as well.This is my 4th live pregnancy, I have been pregnant a total of 8 times. I have had 3 miscarrages and 1 etopic pregnancy... Luckily this pregnancy is going well. The only problem that I have is my headaches. It drives me nuts because tylenol does not help, the doctor prescribed something stronger, but I sometimes hesitate on taking it because im paranoid.Sometimes they get so bad that I give in and take it. I have tried lots of water, laying in a dark and quiet room, ma__sages, heat & rice packs... With no luck.Im hoping they will go away soon.Is this your 1st pregnancy?How old are you?I have a 10 year old son named Ethan, I got a 7 year old daughter named Courtney, and my other son is 1 1/2 ( 21 months ) and his name is Hayden. I wish you the best with your headaches, I know they can be a pain sometimes. Good Luck

I get the headaches too. I'm only a little over 4 weeks though, I have read that many people experience the headaches from hormones, if you pms headaches, you are more likely to experience pg headaches also..

i am in my 5th week of pregnancy and have had a headache constatly for the last 5 days,does anyone know of any good herbal pain relief for it?


Jen - March 28

The book my ob/gyn's office gave stated that I could take two tylenol with a little bit of caffeine if I needed to. I would use caution with any herbal remedy since the side effects are unknown. I have only taken them twice but tylenol has worked for me.

I just started having headaches and I don't know if I am pregnant or not but it seems like my headaches start early in the morning and last all day long and I was just wondering was that a sign of pregnancy or not

congrats to all on your pregnancies. just a thought to all. one of the symptoms of hypothyroidism is headaches. i'm hypo and when i don't take my meds the headaches come full force(have to sleep but when i wake up they are still there.). I think I ovulated this weekend and wasn't wearing a patch. i put one on sunday and today(monday) I have these awful headaches again. it could be my thyroid trying to regulate or I could be pg. Is this even possible? to get headaches this early in pregnancy, I mean?help.

My doctor told me headaches are a sign of dehydration. So I make sure I have water with me at all times.


Holly - August 15

Hi Catrina- I too have had headaches off and on throughout my 11weeks. You may be hungry or need to sleep more. I understand having questions...This is my 3rd pregnancy, but the first two ended in miscarriages. Stay positive..being sleepy is a good sign.
