Ugh. I'm so scared because this is how it started with my ectopic and m/c

Anyone else have really bad headaches when pregnant? I hardly ever get headaches and this one came out of nowhere.

Now I'm getting worried that this one isn't going to stick.

I don't have them....but I believe I've read somewhere that they are completely normal.
I do sometimes get that one-sided PMS migrane/headache that comes and goes during my pregnancy, which I think is hormone related.

I had headaches in weeks 4-5. They weren't terrible, but since I hardly ever get headaches, they were significant for me. I think they are pretty normal and hopefully just a sign of a beginning healthy pregnancy. Nevertheless, I hope they go away for you soon!

I wouldn't call them "really bad" but I do get a headache that feels like I've just tasted something reeeaaallly sour - my teeth and head hurt. A very weird headache for me to begin with but even weirder because I was totally headache-free my whole pg and PP with DD.

Everything's going to be OK. Sending some positive vibes to you and your tiny one~~~~

headaches are common enough, but u shouldn't have to just suffer, some homeopathics can help, if you know a homeopath, and acupuncture.I used to get major migraines, its the reason im an acupuncturist now. to take the edge off, an ice pack on the back off the neck can slow the pain impulses to the head, and help prevent the nasuea that can come with it- the nerve that goes into the stomach is in the back of the neck there. rubbing the feet can bring the energy down, that can help too. blessings.

Headache was gone this morning when I got up, but I was cramping all day. I expected to see blood, but nothing- not even spotting. I retested again this morning and it was negative. So I have no idea what is going on, now. I start my beta series on Monday, so I should have a better idea then.

Thank you for your blessings and positive vibes!

Hi ladies-

Thank you for the positive thoughts. Unfortunately, this just wasn't meant to be. It looks like it was probably a chemical pregnancy. My beta came back below 20 (which is negative) and AF is trying to appear today (nealy a week late!).

So anyway, I wish all of you a wonderful pregnancy and I look forward to reading your birth stories in Jan! We are going on a TTC break until Sept, so hopefully we will be blessed with a Spring Summer 2006 baby.
