Thanks for writing to us.
It is normal to have a mild headache and an incraesed thirst during pregnancy. It happens due to an increased basal body temperature due to the effect of hormones in our body. You can take paracetamol for headache on as and when required basis. Please do not worry.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
