I am 16.4 weeks and am having the worst headaches

Hello Alex,
I am 16.4 weeks and am having the worst headaches daily also having quite a bit of pain in my stomach and sides. I am 38 and this is my first baby. I was alway told I could never have children so I am just a little concerned.
Thank you
Tarron

Answer: Hi Tarron, Hormonal headaches can be quite common in early pregnancy. These should ease soon. You could try drinking lots of water and also taking regular paracetemol is fine. The pain on the sides is probably from your uterine ligaments stretching as the baby grows. Best wishes, Alex
