so my baby was finally born!!! Two weeks late, but very happy! But now I have had a headache for about 2 days and it seems to be getting worse (she was born sunday morning)...anyone know why or experiencing similar? I don't usually get headaches and I had an intervention/drug-free birth.

Is this a headache, or a migraine?
How was your blood pressure? Have you had it checked recently?

I'm not sure why you have a headache [it could be normal, could not].
Maybe the way you sleep?

I hope you figure it out soon!

Are you drinking tons of water? Early breastfeeding can really dehydrate you if your not.
