Headaches in pregnancy?
I rarely suffer headaches but they are the 1 pain that seems to cripple me. I have had headaches on Thurs, Fri and yesterday. They seem to kick in mid afternoon and seem to be when I'm feeling a little tired. I called my MW to ask about them (I also have a medical condition called Hydrocephalus which needs to be monitored through my pregnancy) and she said I could take paracetamol (hurrah! I didnt think you could) and drink plenty and make sure I am getting rest and to pop and see my gp. She said if it was later they would be concerned about pre eclampsia but its too early to for that (I'm 14+1)
I took pain relief and it seemed to ease. I slept like a log last night and saw my gp this morning - BP fine, pulse fine, eyes fine (although I am experiencing some floaters).
Anyone else have this in their second trimester and what did you do to combat it? I've been drinking plenty but this morning have filled a pint glass with cordial and have been sipping and will try and drink as much as possible. Also have bought some cereal bars to combat the mid afternoon tiredness.
