Headache in Pregnancy
You may have sleep apnea. Other symptoms in addition to early morning headaches include:
- Loud snoring
- Feeling drowsy all day
- Falling asleep during the day while watching TV, reading, or driving the car
Sleep apnea can cause periods of low oxygen levels in your blood and the blood supplying the placenta.
Sleep apnea increases the risk of premature delivery and low birth weight of the newborn.
Call your doctor or midwife to discuss the possibility of sleep apnea.
