As you are in your third trimester of pregnancy
, you need to call your doctor so that he/she can determine if you need to be further assessed. Headaches are common during pregnancy and can be attributed to hormonal changes, lack of sleep
and women who were previously succeptible to tension headaches or migraines can experience worsened symtpoms.
In the second or third trimester, it is important to have severe headaches assessed to assess for preeclamsia, a serious pregnancy induced condition that is characterized by headache
in the urine
, high blood pressure
and can induce siezure.
Also, call your doctor if your headache is combined with blurred vision
, sharp abdominal pain
, sudden weight gain
adn swelling. You'll need to be assessed right away.
