  • I have had swollen hands my whole pregnancy. It started with me waking up several times at night with my hands completely numb. Then they would be tingly during the day. I looked it up online and found out that it is carpal tunnel. Some women get it while pregnant. I don't know if I am just used to it now, but it doesn't bug me anymore. Look up the symptoms and see if they match what you have. My doctor said the only thing you can do is cut down on sodium, drink lots of water, and use wrist braces. Good luck!

  • I know what carpal tunnel feels like and this isnt it. It's not very painful at all
