Twin pregnancy - headaches
Hi all,

I am 14 weeks pregnant with twins. I am suffering terrible headaches. I used to get headaches before I got pregnant, but defenitely not as often and bad as now. I don't really like to take medication and know that Panado is the only safe pain reliever to take - I was just wondering if anyone can tell me if this has to do with my pregnancy or not? There were complications with my pregnancy in the beginning (my doctor saw internal blood on the scans) - but with my last scan, the blood was gone and both babies were doing fine. This is my first pregnancy.

Thanking you in advance.

Headaches are commoner in pregnancy because of changes in blood flow, so things may be worse while you are pregnant.
