  • I had it from right about 20 weeks and it lasted until about 3 weeks after Evan was born. Carpal Tunnel. Numbness, tingling, and very painful at night.

  • I had it too.i asked the doc what to do but she said there weren't any quick fixes. She told me to elevate them. She told me that it was from fluid collecting.
