  • How far along are you? It could be pregnancy-induced carpal tunnel, which is common as your pregnancy progresses. The extra fluids can put pressure on the nerves, which can cause the tingling and pain. It can also move up your arm. It's not always isolated to the hand.

  • 25 weeks and its in my upper arm like the inside of it and if it is pressure on the nerve will it ease up in a few days?

  • I had it happen in my first trimester it was weird my arm would go tingly and numb but it always went away after some vigorous windmills. and once I was out of really early pregnancy it never happened again.
