Headaches--is it worth calling?

I'm 11w 4d with my second.

For the past 4-5 days I've been waking up with a very dull headache.  It usually goes away within an hour or two.  Today it's sticking around (been up for over 4 hours). 

Is it worth calling my MW?

My next appointment is a week from Friday because they had to cancel the one last Friday and since I don't have any complications said I don't have to take a day off of work to go in.

Not worth calling, IMO. The hormones can cause headaches - I get them frequently during pregnancy. You also might be dehydrated after sleeping all night.

Not really, no. Headaches are normal.

 Not unbearable.  Very dull ache.  Not even enough to take tylenol.

Headaches are normal during pregnancy, now if they are accompanied with swelling then you should worry. My doctor said if the headache ever got bad just have some coffee or a soda and see if that helps, if not it never hurts to call.

 No swelling.  I'll check my BP when I go to the gym around 1. 

I was just thinking because it's been every morning for 4-5 days.

I had a similar sympton early on this pregnancy, I was always waking up with headaches, I finally had a bad one and called the doctor, he said "go get some soda and if that doesn't work just come in" so I went and got a soda and it helped lol, thankfully they went away though. I would def. bring it up at your appointment though!

I had like 2 weeks of pretty bad headaches (weeks 12 and 13 I think). It was horrible. I asked the doctor and he said it was normal and to just take Tylenol if I wanted.

I had headaches dang near every day with baby #4. They just told me to take Tylenol as needed. It didn't really work for me. I caved and started drinking Pepsi because it was the only thing that seemed to offer any relief.

I have headaches almost everyday, and I am 11 weeks. I just saw my doctor on Tuesday as he said to take Tylenol as needed. And since I am borderline for diabetes, he diet even tell me about drinking soda because I can't have the extra sugar. He did say headaches are pretty common.
