There are many reasons for headaches, often if you go to sleep and wake up with the same headache you can be pretty sure that it is hormonally related (I get these occasionally and they suck). Chiropractic is the only thing that works for me. Obviously with all of the ligament changes we are all going through it is very easy to get out of allignment and in turn causing muscles to tighten. A chiropractic adjustment can be so helpful, your headache could even be coming from a misallignment in your low back! It is really important to put something in our stomachs every 2 to 3 hours so that we don't get headaches related to low blood sugar as well. HA's can even be related to dehydration. I liked the B-vitamin solution above as well, also likely related to blood sugar metabolism issues, although most of us should be getting plenty in our pre-natals. Yes, CA and Mg also can alliviate muscle tension (if you get cramps or twitching you are surely deficient or imbalenced). It is true that Caffeine can often ward off a Migraine if caught in time. If you are getting HA's often, try and keep a food journal and notice what you are eating before you get a HA, looking for a pattern. YOu can do this for other symptoms as well...you would be amazed! Many people have hidden food allergies/insensitivities and this may be aggrevated by your pregnancy! HOpe some of this helps.
