In brief: Progesterone

Progesterone cause fluid retention and can cause headaches in pregnancy.

In brief: Change in hormones

I would speculate hormonal imbalances but there are several reasons behind the occurrence of head pains ranging from genetics, muscle contractions, stress, sleep disorders, teeth grinding, trauma, and different medical illness.
The exact causes of headaches aren't known.
