  • You are having round ligament pain. The round ligament is holding your uterus in place and it's stretching. It hurts like a beeyatch!!! This last pregnancy I had constant headaches. It's just part of it. But when you get further along watch for high blood pressure. That can give you headaches. For now, eat smaller meals more frequently and it will keep your blood sugar up that may help your headache.

  • If you are having bad headaches you should talk to your doctor about it. Headaches are common, but it's worth mentioning.

  • I visit the chiropractor whenever my headaches get out of control. He aligns me and they go away.
