Getting numb hands 20 weeks pregnant

Hello all

Over the last couple of days I have been getting numb hands in the night. I wake with pins and needles and numbness initially in my hands and wrists and I shake them to relieve it.

As the night goes on the numbness seems to spread to my lower arms too. Today I am getting it at work too.

Does anyone know what this is and is there anything I can do about it? I am not worried, but it is annoying, slightly painful and is waking me at night.

Thanks in advance.

Hmmmm, could it be carpal tunnel (sp) syndrome? For some reason you can get it during pregnancy.

I would pay a trip to the GP chick.

A couple of the girls in my physio class suffer with this. They were given hand splints to wear at night. Its quiet common and has some thing to do with the way we sleep when were pregnant. See you midwife for a referal. x

Hi Bravegirl,

I've been getting this since about 20 weeks pregnant and mentioned it to some friends and also my gyne. Evidently its very common and nothing to worry about, unless its painful or doesn't go away when you get up. I only got it when I'm lying on my side and it was never very bad.

Incidentally, it seems to have disappeared in the past week or so.

BG, defo sounds like Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. Like you, I had it from about your stage and it got worse towards the end of my pregnancy. I also had pain in my shoulderblade too which I was told was associated and was to do with where my baby was positioned. I was given splints to wear at night but I found that they didn't help all that much.
As soon as Annalise was born, that the Carpel Tunnel went away, along with the heartburn, etc. The only thing that stayed for a while was the Hip and Pubic pain. I do know that for afew women, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome carries on after the birth and for some.
Mention it Monday and you can maybe get a referral in now for physio. I remember it took a long time for me to be seen initially. They also might assess you and give you a belt to help with hip and pubic pain too,x

thanks for all your posts ladies. I think you are right with your diagnosis! It happens when i am sleeping on my side but I wont sleep on my back as that is meant to be bad for BB.

I will mention to GP and see what they suggest. good to know it goes away!
