Early Pregnancy Symptoms - Headaches
Headaches are more common during early pregnancy and as with many pregnancy symptoms, this is usually as a result of the massive hormonal changes your body is undergoing.
Some women also find they are more prone to migraines when they are pregnant and that stress or certain foodstuffs can bring them on. If this is the case for you, you should try to pinpoint any thing that acts as a trigger, perhaps by keeping a food diary where you can note down foods and drinks you have consumed and any ill after-effects they have on you.
Try to take some time out to rest if you are feeling under pressure and if the headaches become a real problem your GP may prescribe suitable medication for use during pregnancy.
