In brief: See your doctor

Headaches are usually not due to serious diseases.
The history and symptoms of the headaches can help assign a category to the headache. Around time of pregnancy, physicians are concerned about a condition called pre-eclampsia and eclampsia which is associated with elevated blood pressure. Elevated blood pressure can cause visual disturbances and headaches. Call and see your doctor. Click on pic.
