What could cause headaches during pregnacy?

I posted a question earlier but did not get a response that I was hoping to get. What can cause migranes that are not relieved with pain meds when you are pregnate other than blood pressure being dehydrated and just the fact that you are pregnate?

  • From what my doctor things, hormones. I have constant terrible headaches that border in migraines daily. I take pain medication for em and sometimes it helps dull the pain down, but not always.

    Definatly bring it up at your next appointment with your doctor. See if there is anything else that can be done.
