    Can't remember with Caitlin if I had headaches but I have been having headaches this last week and thought pregnancy can cause many headaches so is it possible that the decrease of hormone levels can cause headaches?

    I have headaches literally every single day. My mom said it could be caused by changes in sleeping and eating patterns! Arg. Moms just can't win!!

    I had this as well. For a few weeks after the birth, I had about three headaches a week. They went away after a couple of weeks though.

    im getting regular headaches from dull ones to migranes :(

    i wondered if it was to do with interupted sleep but hormones changing sounds like a culprit

    I've started to have headaches the past few days. It was pretty bad yesterday and I ended up going to bed at 8pm. Got another headache today. I'm not sure if it could be the pill i've started recently though, so am going to stop taking it and see if the headaches go.
