Warning: this is about pregnancy and a possible complication.
Yesterday marked 17 weeks of pregnancy. Today marks the 7th day in a row of headache. It seems if I don’t drink a lot (about 2 liters or more) throughout the day and night, I get these painful headaches that are hard to chase away. I get up about twice a night to pee, and I take a big drink each time or I will wake up with a splitting headache. If I forget to drink for about an hour, then hello headache. I have been getting headaches at least since the 10 week mark, but they were more infrequent until the last 2 weeks. My doctor and I both (last month) blamed it on the hormones. My blood pressure is in the normal range and I have no swelling. I’m afraid this is PCOS related because I stopped the Metformin at week 13.
Any of you ladies have any thoughts on this?
I’m planning to call my doctor once her office opens this morning, but I was hoping someone out there might have something to say based on experience.
