I’m 30 weeks and every night I get tingly fingers, numb and pain. I mentioned to my doctor but said it’s normal, will go away after birth. Do any bee’s experince this and if so, what do you to relieve pain. Thanks.

I have this. Unfortunately nothing really seemed to help, except getting up out of bed and starting my day. I tried wrist splints and they helped a little but barely. I’m hoping this will go away quickly once baby is born. Sorry I couldn’t be more help.

Ughh me too! I can barely get my bedroom door open in the morning my fingers are so stiff. Icing my hands help a little but I mostly just try to ignore it.

I had this with my first pregnancy- but not my second one (odd how you have differnt symptoms with each one). My mom had had true Carpel Tunnel prior to having the surgery to correct it so i borrowed her splints. It helped a little – btu the only thing that cured it was time. Symptoms gone within a week or two of giving birth.

I didn’t have carpel tunnel during pregnancy, but thought I had it after. Turns out I have De Quervain’s Tendonitis, aka “Mommy Thumb”. It’s a for real thing http://www.parents.com/baby/new-parent/motherhood/mommy-thumb-5-ways-to-ease-the-pain/
And I only have it in my left wrist because I’m right handed and I hold the baby a lot in my left arm to free up my right hand to do things.
My doctor told me to ice it and take advil. It helps a little, but here I am 5.5 post-partum and my wrist still hurts. Hopefully it goes away soon. Just something for you to think about after you have the baby. No one told me about this “mommy thumb” thing. Might’ve done things a little differently if I had known.

I got it a little bit during pregnancy, but a warning: for me it got WAY worse a few days after he was born, it went from numbness that was a bit tingly to a painful numbness. Wearing a brace helped me a ton, I’d recommend getting one and wearing it at least while you sleep, plus then you’ll already have it just in case it does get worse after delivery when the fluid levels are changing and re-adjusting.

I had this off and on from about week 14 onwards. Now at almost 2 weeks postpartum, I don’t have it at all!

I’ve had it and the wrist splint has helped.
