Q. “I've been getting more headaches than usual since becoming pregnant – Should I be worried?”
Headaches will also develop anon in pregnancy, again mainly as a result of of simple factors like fatigue. However, sometimes a headache will be a sign of different medical issues including anaemia. More seriously, it will be a manifestation of pre- eclampsia or toxaemia of pregnancy. If it persists you should consult your doctor who could want to try to to an examination and run a few tests.
Anaemia is common in pregnancy as a result of of all the changes that take place in your body. The expanding blood volume and the event of the placenta and the baby use a heap of the iron stores. This is significantly worse in people who begin pregnancy already anaemic as a result of of an inadequate diet or serious periods. If you are vegetarian you're at a better risk of developing anaemia.
