    I seem to have one everyday, sometimes I wake up with it and it lasts until I go to sleep at night and does not shift even after a nap. Should I be concerned? Does this mean i'm not drinking enough fluids? I take a litre bottle to work full of water and re fill it up at work and then a few glasses of water when I get home.
    Also, i've noticed when I have a bad migraine I have bad nausea. Can someone help me.

    I can't say I have an answer- however try upping your fluids to see if that helps- if drinking extra litres doesn't help maybe ask your midwife?

    I don't get headaches- and when I do I know it's because I'm dehydrated- dehydration headaches are usually more the back of the neck area apparently?

    My friend has suffered like this and midwife told her even tho she thinks she's drinking a lot she's still not drinking enough and ordered her to drink half a pint every 4 hours - try that and hope it helps. Get some gel patches too xx

    I never get headaches and although mine aren't as bad as yours I have been getting them pretty regularly. I
    Read that they were a pregnancy side affect due to all the hormones. I hope they ease soon for you xxx

    I was having daily headaches up until 20 weeks. Paracetamol really helped and mw said I could take that 4 times a day if I needed it. Never needed to take it more than once. Resting also helped but difficult to do! If I ignored it too long it would develop into a full blown migraine with blurry lines in that affected eye. I used to think I was having a stroke! They checked my bp a few times and its been fine, so just the hormones.

    I've had them sophie, my preg book says its normal- I think this heat might have something to do with it too. Paracetamol works though! :)

    I have issues with headaches. Think the heat is causing them at the moment though. Am trying to drink lots to keep them at bay, but I do worry about taking painkillers too often.
