I am currently 33 weeks pregnant and since wednesday, today is sunday, I have been getting really bad headaches everyday. Wednesday I took tylenol but it didn't help so I haven't taken any since then since it didn't help the first time. Does anyone have any idea why I am getting these painful headaches. I have a dr. Appointment tomorrow afternoon.
i would think it may have to do with blood pressure. Don't be suprised if you are put on bedrest or even worse because headaches that can't be helped with otc pain relief are often a sign of preeclampsia and you should've called your Dr last week
Probably just hormones, but make sure you get it checked out because it could also be a myriad of things including blood pressure. I had a headache similar to that a couple weeks ago. I used to get mirgraines before pregnancy and mine seemed very migraine-like so I never mentioned it to my doctor because it seemed normal for me. But if you aren't prone to migraines or headaches and this isn't the norm for you, bring it up.
