  • You may also reduce the likelihood of migraine headaches by avoiding common triggers of migraine headaches. Potential triggers include:

    Chocolate
    Alcohol
    Yogurt
    Aged cheese
    Peanuts
    Breads with fresh yeast
    Preserved meats
    Sour cream
    When should you contact your health care provider?
    Unfortunately, headaches are a normal part of pregnancy; however you should be able to experience some relief. Contact your health care provider:

    Before taking any medications
    If you do not experience any relief from the remedies above
    Your headaches get worse or more persistent
    You experience headaches that are different than normal
    Your headaches are accompanied by: blurry vision, sudden weight gain, pain in the upper right abdomen, and swelling in the hands and face
