Pregnancy Headaches

When a combination of common hormonal changes, fatigue and also stress put a strain on your body during pregnancy, you may experience headaches, especially during the first trimester. Relaxation, meditation and yoga may help, if your discomfort is caused by a tension headache. Proper nutrition, along with frequent meals can help you avoid hunger headaches that are triggered by low blood sugar. Stay away from smoky, unventilated rooms and get plenty of fresh air. A walk outside maybe just what you need. Also, keeping up your fluid intake can be very useful in alleviating headache symptoms. Don’t take any pain medications without being directed by your doctor or midwife.
