did you get continous headaches while pregnant?

i have had an ongoing headache for like 2 weeks and today its hurts so bad i want to cry. i cant think clearly, my vision starts to blur when i walk and the worse my headache gets the more nauseous i feel. im nearly 11 weeks and i dont know if i should be getting headaches like this or what to do about them.

  • Yes I did with my first and it was because of my pre eclampsia, I would call your doctor's office in the morning and see what they want you to do .... But since you are so fresh in your pregnancy it is more than likely due to the increased hormones, But I would still call just to be on the safe side!!

  • Yes, at exactly the same time you are having.. they go away, but it sucks a LOT. I was in the middle of finals and I just about lost it. If you are worried its always good to see a doc, but it sounds like what I went through..

  • I'm 15 wks and they're finally getting better. I get them still but not nearly as often and they don't last as long. It's really hard to deal with I know, ask you SO to massage your head and/or try a black out mask when the pain gets really bad. I've found if I have a little caffine and block out all light that I possibly can I do a lot better. Good luck & congrats.
