Hand Numbness in Pregnancy

When swelling occurs in the nerves in your wrists, it can lead to a condition called Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, which can cause pain and numbness in your hands. The discomfort can be worse at night, so avoid laying on your hands when you sleep and if you wake up in pain, hang your hand over the side of your bed and shake it. If it becomes severe, you may need to wear a splint on your wrists to ease numbness.
