A lot of women have migraines while pregnant. I even did. I was told that it was from the hormone changes. Let your doctor know that you are having migraines and see what they can suggest. I had a headache every single day while I was pregnant. While I am prone to chronic migraines (from ligament damage in neck), I mostly suffered from actual but very bad headaches. You can take tylenol, but if that doesn't work, it is totally safe in most cases to take narcotics (lortab, vicodin, percocet, etc...), but NOT asprin. Pregnancy causes considerable fluid retention in the mucuous membranes, which can also contribute to sinus infections & sinus headaches. Good luck

Is it normal to get migraines when your pregnant?

Migraines can occur during pregnancy. Some women who have migraines find they may get more migraines, less migraines, or experience no change at all during pregnancy. A woman won't know which of those will happen until it happens, unfortunately. It is all highly individual. If you are pregnant and you've never experienced migraines or other severe headaches, and suddenly are doing so - make sure you discuss this with your doctor. Do not assume that they are migraines. Severe headaches during pregnancy are a sign of high blood pressure, and high blood pressure means that your doctor needs to be looking out for preeclampsia.
