Are Headaches a symptom?

Postby firefighterwife » Wed Mar 30, 2016 10:15 am

Hi all! I am hoping someone can help answer or give advice. I am about 11 dpo. For the past 4 days I have been having a bad headache or possibly a migraine. I usually never get headaches so This is very uncommon for me.

I am on the fence about buying a test. We were not ttc, so I don't know if I want to go out special and purchase one when I can probably wait a few days....

Would a test at 11 dpo even be accurate? Did anyone have headaches or migraines as a symptom?

I don't know about specifically a pregnancy symptom, but headaches can definitely be linked to hormone levels so it's possible. Before starting BCP I would get a week long migraine every cycle with AF. The regulation from the pill stopped them. I got them back with TTC and I have had a few bad, multi-day headaches since becoming pregnant but in my case I don't think they're a symptom of the pregnancy.

You can totally get a positive HPT at 11DPO but you may still get a false negative. If you aren't stressed about waiting, wait, otherwise get a pack of several so you can test a few days in a row. :D

Good luck mama!

If I were to go to a regular drugstore what brand should I look for? It has been awhile...☺️☺️

The only ones I've bought at the drugstore are FRERs - first response early result. They're a little pricey but the gold standard around here. All of the blue dye tests have a bad reputation but I don't know about other off-brand pink ones. For really early, obsessive testing I have a stack of Wondfos from Amazon or BFPs from early-pregnancy-tests.com. It's probably too late for the internet cheapies for you this cycle, and hopefully you'll never need them!

I did end up taking a test on Wednesday night (the day I posted this question) and it came up stark white. BFN. The headaches finally subsided yesterday. So I guess it was not a sign.

Thank you both for the replies!
