This pregnancy just keeps on giving, in the wrong way. About two weeks ago I started to notice my hands going numb during the night. When I would sleep on my right side, my left hand would go numb and vice versa. Well I opened up my Mayo Clinic book on pregnancy and numbness in hands leads me to the section on Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. Google confirms this as well. Ok no biggie. Well as the week progressed it got worse but not too bad. I mentioned it to my Dr and they confirmed that yes, with the swelling in your hands, this is what you have. Ok fine. Well over this last weekend, it has become unbearable. I can no longer sleep except on my back which I’m not supposed to do so I toss and turn all night trying to find a spot that will not make my hands go numb,while still trying to take the pressure off my uterus so it doesn’t restrict blood flow to my heart and legs. However, the second I lay down on one side or the other, my hands instantly goes numb and start tingling. I have a small wedge that I can place under one hip but let me just tell you, it doesn’t really allow for a restful night. Now the pain has progressed during the day too. I can barely write with a pen and I can’t grasp anything. It even hurts to drive, although it feels ok to type. Sigh. I will take it as long as the baby is healthy but geeze, enough already.
