    How long into induction? Could be dehydration - are you drinking enough water? My first month i found i always woke up soooo thirsty ...because i couldn't keep sipping water while i was asleep!

    I only get a headache on one day, as katie said you could need water. Everyone is different though so take a panadol when you get them and it will be a great help.

    Are you sure it is to do with the diet? Has there been any stress lately? Do you have any other symptoms?

    I sometimes get headaches when I wake up, and am really thirsty. However, if I have not had my 2 litres of water the day before, I wake up fine, no headache or thirst. Dont know why, you'd think it would be the other way round ?

    yeah no choice, just got to get on with it and stand tall. as hard as juggling kids, dogs,cats and diets is, we just have to tell ourselves that we can do it ! we are strong and nothing ( especially no little headache or battling teenage sons) is going to stop us going where we want to go. times will always get tough, but we're made of tough stuff !

    Good honey, that's an excellent sign - just see it as all those nasty carbs flushing away and in a day or two you will be raring to go! :)
