Is it common to get mild headaches every morning?

I am into my sixth week and have been getting mild headaches everyday since I found out I was pregnant. I just want to know if this has happened to anyone else?

  • It's NOT normal!!! Not trying to scare you but warn you...That is one of the first warning signs of pre-eclampsia. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water, because headaches are also a sign of dehydration.

  • It was normal for me and I had two full term pregnancies. Everyone's bodies are different with how they handle all the hormonal changes your body is going through. If you're really worried you can call your Dr. Good Luck!

  • yes it is normal for MANY people. i had severe headaches every day for several weeks w my first. my doctors have all told me that many women have it as a symptom. drink a lot of water, thats the only thing that ever helped me.
