Q:

What you are describing appears to be carpel tunnel syndrome which does affect some pregnant moms. The first thing to confirm would be if your blood pressure is normal. Carpel tunnel gets aggravated due to excess fluid and this can be due to elevated blood pressure. Also check with your doctor if you can do a routine urine test to check for protein in the urine. If all these are normal, the remedy is exercise and postures. You can consider a soft splint at night to help keep the wrist straight. Both exercise and splinting can be done at home once you learn so reach out to a specialist for the same or check with your doctor.
