  • Have you seen an OB yet? Headaches could be a sign of elevated blood pressure. They say if your headache does not go away with tylenol or rest, then it is possibly blood pressure related. I'd say for now to make sure you're eating right, getting your prenatals in, drinking plenty of water and taking it easy until you can go in and talk to your doctor. It might also be low blood sugar, so try drinking a glass of juice or eating and that might help too.

  • Ive had that problem with this pregnancy. It was my blood pressure. It can also be caused by your blood sugar being to high or low. Call your ob.

  • Thanks I didn't think of that I am hypoglycemic and I've been feeling pretty light headed and even almost passed out at one point. My next appointment in next week but I will go ahead and call my doctor. Thanks
