Pretty common.: If you have headaches when non-pregnant, expect them to come more frequently during pregnancy. Estrogen effects dilate your brain vessels and account for the lowered threshold for migraines and common headaches in pregnancy and postpartum. Tylenol (acetaminophen) (1 gm) with Reglan (10 mg) is a great way to pharmaceutically treat headache in pregnancy - consult with a neurologist for migraines.
