Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy week by week headaches

pregnancy

Anyone out there testing next week and hoping for a BFP????? Or even a TSP (Tiny Skinny Positive!
(the only thing that was truly different was that the first period after I got pregnant I got extremely bad cramps and every period I had got after kept coming late I skipped one week and the I skipped a week right after on my most recent) why did all 4 hpt show up negative but one pregnancy at my doctors appointment with practically no urine(i emptied my bladder before i left) show positive. Ps.
At my 8-week appt I mentioned to my OB that I was getting more frequent headaches than normal (I'm not normally prone to them at all--probably I have a handful a year and they always respond quickly to advil or tylenol). He said it was hormones. Since then they've become even more frequent, and as I said I've had one that has been nearly continuous since Thanksgiving. I'm drinking lots of water and didn't drink caffeine before pregnancy so that's not it.
I suffer from migraines and they get worse with pregnancy. I was told by my doctor that many people get headaches because of the estrogen we produce while pregnant! Last week I went to the E.R. twice because I couldnt break my migraine for 7 days straight. If it gets bad they will give you pain medication but try to cut some stuff out of your diet... Chocolate, soda and salt!
) LOL I've had headaches off and on from about week 9 and I'm having a girl. Tylenol does seem to help me though. Good Luck!!!
I did suffer from headaches more during pregnancy and still at 35 week have them regularly.
I have never heard of headaches being a sign of miscarriage. They are however well known to be a symptom of pregnancy, they are caused by hormones and so some people call them "hormone headaches." I never had headaches with either of my miscarriages, dont worry about it.
I have been having headaches and vomiting from week 11 to week 13. I don't know what part of the country you are in, but if you're smack dab somewhere in the middle like me you know that we have been having blizzards. The stress associated with the blizzards definitely made the situation worse. My family has a history of migraines. It sounds like that might be what you are going through too. I think that as pregnant women the only thing we can take is Tylenol.
I am just in my 6th week and I am feeling awful. I am tired all day and nauseated after I eat no matter what I eat but my concern are the headaches and the lightheadedness I am feeling. Are any of you feeling this also??? I guess it could be from not eating much. I am eating, just not a whole lot because I hate the way I feel afterwards. Any suggestions on this would be helpful. Thanks!!!!!
I get weekly adjustments for mine by a chiro that specializes in pregnancy. It helps so i didn't have to take the meds. Good luck!
with my first pregnancy i had bad headaches after and im sure it had something to do with my BP which had went higher after i had my daughter... so its always a good thing to get checked out for sure!
Has anyone else been having headaches with their pregnancy? I am 17wks pg and have been having headaches for about 3 wks now. They almost feel like sinus headaches, since it hurts to touch my face around my eyes, but Sudafed nor Tylenol seem to help. My doc thinks that they are hormone related. Anyone have any suggestions?
a wise friend of mine told me to drink more water and eat at regular times to control headaches. I was getting bad headaches every day and i started taking her advice and i am all better.. SOOO make sure you are drinking close to or more than 64 oz of water and eating at regular intervals.. even if you arent hungry.. Good luck at your appointment!! i get to know the sex in 3 weeks i am too excited!!!!!
So I'm a week late for my period. I'm still not ready to test and I'm going bonkers. I've been cramping on and off since 3/29 followed by backaches. On 4/3 the day my cycle was to start I had a brown mucus discharge. On 4/5 too a test and it was negative. Now I'm extremely Moody and emotional and on and off headaches and constipated and gassy. Pressures here and there in my abdomine. So anxious to test but want to wait. I already have a 6 month old that I had via c-section.
Hi! This is so silly and I confused So I took a pregnancy test on the 26th as I was 4 days late (im known to be irregular by 1-3 days a cycle) and I saw an instant negative thinking I wasn't. So I went about my business and about 30-1H i remembered that I hadn't disposed of the test. I went to grab it and noticed there was a noticeable line in the test Window. I panicked and tried to self diagnose and I feel I'm either pregnant or it was an evaporation line.
Im 28 weeks nd i haven't been having symptoms really some days i dont feel like eating then some days im starving nd my son has been lazy this whole pregnancy not moving much no hard kicks are anything untill a week ago i think he heard when the doctor said they were going to monitor him so every since then he's been really active everyday
Hey-- I am going on the two week wait thing also! It is soo frusterating! I just wish I new already. I am due the 12 of Oct. I really don't like this waiting part, cause I just want to know. I think I am just because I feel different, I don't know how to explain it! I have had frequent headaches and gotten sick a few times and lots of discharge but I don't know if you would have signs this soon. I bled a few days around the 3rd either from stopping the birth control pills or from implanting.
I had brown discharge my 5th week of pregnancy and I bled fairly heavy my 6th week. Everything was ok though. It was implantation bleeding. I'm 13 1/2 weeks now and everything is perfect. I know it's scary to see brown/pink/red discharge because it could be a sign that something is wrong, but try not to worry unless you start getting severe cramping. If it helps to ease your mind, call your Dr. to see if you can get an earlier appt. I wish you a happy and healthy 9 months!
I'm very very nervous, my period should be on by Friday (I'll give it Saturday of this week-15 June) last week (Thursday I believe) had normal light pink discharge and cramping---all normal during the week before my period. Oddly though I've had NO breast tenderness (and here it is a few days before the start of my period). This is VERY odd for me bc I ALWAYS have tender/swollen breast.
I had cramps for a while it lasted a couple days and went away. I have been experiencing headaches that seem to come and go. I am also a pretty regular person in the bathroom and I have recorded 2 days where I didn't have any BM. I have been feeling bloated and my nipples are soar, my gums have been bleeding a little when I brush, I have not been able to sleep well at night, having to get up to pee a lot.
ya, 8DPO is really early to test, lol. my last pregnancy was + at 8DPO, but that assumes implantation around 6-7DPO. actually, it can implant around 12DPO...which then you probably wouldn't get that + at 14DPO...if you're lucky. auntDD could still be +...it's not as common but sometimes it takes a while to show on a test. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!!!
Hence to confirm the status of pregnancy, I suggest you to test for pregnancy by a highly sensitive pregnancy test 10 days post ovulation with a sensitive ( 20 - 25 mIU ) pregnancy test. Also then I would suggest you to get your serum HCG levels estimated since this is more specific than urine for pregnancy tests. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Yes. I always got headaches as an early sign of pregnancy. Within the first week or 10 days after conceiving the headaches started! You might want to ask your doctor about taking meds. Mine said to start with Tylenol and if that didn't work I could even take Excedrin if I had to. But I'd definitely ask him/her about it :) Congrats on the pregnancy!!
Just wondering if anyone else has bad headaches/migraines during pregnancy that was a problem before conception. I have been suffering from these headaches for over a year and every treatment option (other then needles in my head) that my neurologist comes up with, my Ob says no to. Has anyone been on Tramadol or Fiorcet during prenancy?
Can you describe the location or character of the headaches that you are experience? Headaches are indeed commonly associated with hormonal changes especially during pregnancy. If you did not experience this in your other pregnancies, this is because each pregnancy is different from each other. Often, the degree of variation has to do with the level of the pregnancy hormone in your body. Nausea and vomiting are often associated with migraine headaches.
Dizziness for 1 week (persistent throughout the day, not orthostatic, not relieved by eating, does not cause nausea, just a medicated unsteady feeling). Only other symptom is occasional heart palpitations. When my heart "jumps" I can't hear as well for a second. Past Medical History: Depression/anxiety: Manifested as insomnia, feeling overwhelmed by daily tasks, desire to sleep all day, moments of intense sadness. Began in Nov 07 (after starting 5th yr pharmacy school).
I am not a doctor but it sounds to me like you are having panic attacks, again I am not a doctor so please talk to your doctor about your headaches. Is this your first pregnancy? I can understand some anxiety, your body is going through a lot of natural changes and at the same time I hope you can relax enough to enjoy this beautiful time in your life.
I am exactly one week late today. I have taken numerous pregnancy tests, actually, more than I want to mention. Some are showing up a faint positive (within 5 minutes) and others are absolutely negative. These tests that I am taking are supposed to be extremely sensitive (supposed to detect levels of 20). I've heard that you really shouldn't test until you are a week late. I called my doc and he said to come in for a blood test if I haven't started in one more week.
