Hiii .. Today and Yesterday I have had this annoying head ache in the left of my head that keeps coming and going. It comes for a a few minutes to half hour then it goes. I have NO energy. I slept for about 3 hours today (lucky partner is home to watch the kids).. I also been getting (just yesterday and today) this kind of pinching pain up my left hand side.. I've had 2 kids already and i dont remember getting such a weird pain. Does anyone know what this is caused by & does anyone else get these headaches like i am? I dont normally get headaches!!

Experiencing headaches and feeling fatigue during pregnancy are one of the most common discomforts.
Normal pregnancy changes, especially during the first trimester are responsible for having more frequent headaches.

Do you get brief, sharp, severe jabbing pains about the head that occur either as single episodes or as brief repeated volleys?
Does the pain resembles a stab from an icepick, nail, or needle and typically lasts from a fraction of a second to 1 to 2 seconds?
Are these pains located around your eye, temple area and around the ear?

The pain resembles a stab from an icepick, nail, or needle and typically lasts from a fraction of a second is known as idiopathic stabbing headache.
It may have the shortest duration of all known headaches.
The frequency of attacks varies immensely, ranging from 1 attack per year to 50 attacks per day.
