  • Headaches during pregnancy are usually caused by increased blood flow, which happens pretty much immediately. So yes, it's normal.

    Though if you were drinking a consistent amount of caffeine, it could be withdrawal.

    Either way, take some Tylenol and it should get better. :)

  • Are your drinking water? Are you getting enough sleeps? Are you eating well? Are you keeping warm? Ask you doctor if you have frequent headaches.

    Take care and congratulations on your pregnancy.
