welcome to healthcare magic forum
mild headache is very common and need not to worry
but you have very bad ache and its not normal
it may be due to some hormonal imbalance or high blood pressure which is common at this stage
so dont take it easy ,be relax and consult gynecologist as early as you can

welcome to health care magic
headache during the last few weeks are to be reviewed with great care
the most common problem you will see that it is related to pregnancy induced hypertension.
if it is associated with passing lesser amounts of urine and vomiting then - please see your gynaecologist as soon as possible
Hope I have answered you question
