Congratulations! Mine wasn't planned either so i completely understand what you mean!!
I had really bad headches for the first few weeks and the midwife said it could be caused by not drinking enough fluids as you need more once you are pregnant. Try drinking lots of water or juice and see if that helps. Other than that i would just advise you to take it easy and make sure that you are not eating anything that you shouldn't be (there are lists on loads of webiste like the NHS one etc)

Congratulations everyone. I think cramping is quite normal i have had it with all 4 pregnancies round the time my periods should have been due. obviously if you get bleeding with it or it becomes very painful seek medicl advice.
My babies are growing up!
