Re: Headaches normal during pregnancy?

I had them a bunch in the first tri this time. I googled it b/c I never had them with my first pregnancy and thought it might be "significant." According to numerous web sites (FWIW), it's common in pregnancy and due to a couple things:

1. hormones (yeah!)
2. dehydration
3. caffiene withdrawl
4. mama's needing to take it easy

So, long story short, drink LOTS of water and rest as much as possible. Decide whether you want to consume some caffiene.

I think headaches may be a problem in later pregnancy if you have other signs of pre-e, but a headache alone that goes away after resting is probably just a headache.
