  • I had that from about 30 wks until I delivered at 37 wks. I always forgot to ask my DR about it when I went in because something else had usually happened by then. But I feel for you because it HURTS!

  • its probably the way the baby is laying might be hitting the nerve or something trying getting up and walking too see if you can get them too move

  • I experienced numbness and tingling on my hands when I would sleep. I was concerned so I described what I was feeling with my ob. She stated that it was carpal tunnel. After I had my son, I no longer experienced it.

  • Hey I had that all through out my pregnancy. I was told that the baby may be pushing on a nerve and to not worry about it.. I'd double check with your doctor but I'm sure it's fine. I couldn't wait to feel my hands and arms again but of course she was over a week late...

  • carpal tunnel is common in pregnancy, sounds like that might be it....or the baby could be on a nerve too.
