  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    During pregnancy  your body experiences a surge of hormones and an increase in blood volume.  These two changes can cause more frequent headaches. These headaches may be further aggravated by stress, poor posture or changes in your vision. Other causes of headaches during pregnancy may involve one or more of the following:
    Lack of sleep,Low blood sugar,Dehydration,Caffeine withdrawal,Stress (due to many changes)

    Headaches during the third trimester tend to be related more often to poor posture and tension from carrying extra weight. Headaches during the third trimester may also be caused by a condition called preeclampsia, which is high blood pressure during pregnancy. The best way to deal with headaches is to avoid them altogether. Avoiding tension headaches is easiest when you follow these tips:
    - Practice good posture (especially during the third trimester),
    - Get plenty of rest and relaxation Exercise ,
    - Eat well-balanced meals.
    - Apply cold or heat packs to your head.

    Paracetamol tablet is safe but before taking any medicine get your checkup done by your obstetrician.
