Headaches on waking every morning and during the night?


Hi ladies

Just wondered if anyone else is waking up in the night or early in the morning (5am onwards) with bad headaches? I have been, the last few mornings. 2 paracetamol and a bit more sleep does the trick but I'm scared of taking paracetamol too often. If I didn't take them though, i'd end up with a stinker of a migraine and would end up having to take more paracetamol through the day.

I used to suffer from really severe migraines before I got pregnant and was even on a daily preventative. But since being pregnant I have not suffered from migraines at all really and any headaches I do get have been cleared up really quickly with a couple of paracetamol (which would never have even touched a headache before I was pregnant!)

Just wondered if anyone else is experiencing these headings on waking? I didn't really get any at all in the first trimester....but now it seems to be every morning. They don't come back through the day. Is it ok to take one dose of paracetamol per day?

I got headaches really bad and i harldy ever have them normaly and never had a migrane. I never found out what the cause of it was maybe due to the extra pressure your body is under with pumping blood around the body?

But mine did go they lasted about a week woke up every morning with one and it was on and off all day.. Hopefully yours will go soon to..

I get them quite intensely at night.. And I find if I sit down for too long or stand up too quick it can trigger them aswell.

I THINK it's something to do with extra blood being pumped round.. The same reason that you might experience increased nose bleeds.. I don't think it's anything to worry about but if it does concern you then don't be scared to give you're MW a ring

Yes, had really bad headaches upon awakening from week 16 to 19!
Paracetamol first thing upon awakening helped me a lot.
Good luck...

I get these too. I've started having a glass of water when I wake through night and they're not as bad when I wake up in the morning

Thanks everyone, glad it's not just me! I will try having a glass of water through the night and see if that helps. Hope you all get rid of the headaches soon...

Hiya,
I usually suffer from bad migraines frequently, but since being pregnant i have had hardly any migraines.....apart from the one i've had since yesterday, and one i had a few weeks ago. I spoke to the midwife and the doctor about it, and its safe to take paracetamol normally, just not anything else. (oh how i miss Zomig....miracle migraine cure!lol)

It could be that your blood sugar is taking a big nose dive at night too, and its too long inbetween your night time meal and waking. I get that even now and wake up with headaches some mornings. If you can eat a little something that wont give you heartburn just before bed it helps alot.
