  • My arm/hand used to do that all the time when I was pregnant. Nothing to worry about. But if you are concerned about it, call your OB/GYN.

  • In my second pregnancy I had three fingers on my right hand that were asleep for the whole third trimester. My doctor said that is is the baby sitting on a nerve or something. Sometimes it might go away after the birth and sometimes not. Yours sound a little extreme, though, so I would definitely talk to your OB/GYN next time you have an appt.

  • This happens to me all of the time! If I hold something for too long, or most of the time when I'm sleeping. My doc wasn't too worried so I guess I'll just deal for another few months!

  • yep all the time! the baby is probably just on a nerve in your back.
