Those are called hormonal headaches. The changes in your hormone level trigger them. I've gotten them since I was a teen.

I had them when I was on the pill. The hormone surge caused them.

 It's funny that so many are saying they had them when they were on the pill. I had them UNTIL I got on the pill! Since being on it, I haven't had an issue.

I do agree with the other moms that if you're experiencing this regularly, see a doctor to discuss your options. Good luck

Sounds hormonal to me. Are you on hormonal birth control? If not that may help. Check with your OB. I had terrible headaches for about 2 months after my baby was born. I would wake up every morning with one. I'm guessing they were hormonal since they went away.
