Is it normal to have a pounding headache everyday? I'm only eight weeks into my pregnancy and I feel awful!

Headaches are very common in pregnancy, and you can take paracetamol to ease the pain. But maybe chat to your midwife if they're bad and coming on everyday, as it's worth checking and she might recommend something else for you.

I am sorry to hear you are suffering from pounding headaches. I got occasional headaches while pregnant. I would let your midwife know. Also, make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids and rest when you need to. You body is hard at work creating a tiny little human! Do rest when you need to.

I hope you feel better soon!
