Tips

Prevent Pregnancy Headaches

lindad14

Many women suffer from headaches during pregnancy, and while you might want to chalk it all up to crazy hormones, there are ways to prevent them from happening. Here, some tips from the American Pregnancy Association.


Make sure you're getting enough sleep, and take some time to relax.

Eat regular, healthy meals and snacks. Low blood sugar can lead to headaches.

Drink plenty of fluids.

Get regular exercise.

Rid your life of as much stress as possible (I know: easier said than done), which can help prevent tension headaches.

Pay attention to posture. Putting too much pressure on your neck and shoulders can lead to headaches.

Watch your caffeine intake. But don't stop all caffeine suddenly -- which in itself can cause withdrawal-related headaches.
