Headache is synonymous with the term migraine. Pregnancy can indeed trigger the emergence of migraines, especially during the early or late trimesters. This is because it occurs due to significant hormonal changes in early pregnancy. Migraine headaches are usually worse if the pregnant woman feels stressed, lacks sleep, lacks nutrition, and is dehydrated.
Headaches can also be caused by the wrong position, for example when sitting or sleeping. This can cause the muscles around the head and neck to become tense and stiff. This tension headache is known as a tension type headache.
Stomach cramps sometimes occur normally in early pregnancy. However, if you continue to think about other causes. Some conditions such as ulcers, appendicitis, urinary tract infections, or ectopic pregnancy (outside the uterus) can cause these complaints.
We recommend that you directly check your complaints to the doctor. Additional tests such as blood, urine and ultrasound tests may be needed if indicated. The best treatment will be adjusted to the cause found.
Some tips for dealing with headaches during pregnancy:
Ensure regular nutritional intake Enough to drink Enough sleep. Also pay attention to the sleeping position so that it feels comfortable and does not make the head muscles tense. Avoid caffeine consumption Do light exercise especially for pregnant women Take a warm shower Cold compress on the sore head Light massage on the head, neck and shoulders Hopefully useful
