  • I think they're pretty normal in pregnancy. If they get bad, I would put a call into the doctor just to be safe though.

  • My mother started getting them when she was pregnant.
    After (years and years!) they became much more consistant, and now she's on blood pressure meds, ect.
    I would tell your doctor, but I wouldn't worry, unless they are VERY consistant over a longer span of time.

  • I would definately check with your Dr. I can't remember having them when I was pregnant. I do get them now and am on meds for that. Are you drinking alot of caffeine? I would cut down on that.
