If your hands are feeling numb, tingling or if you’re experiencing a dull ache throughout your fingers, there’s a chance you might have carpal tunnel syndrome. It’s a super common condition during pregnancy as you’re retaining lots of excess fluid, which swells the tissues in your wrists and hands, and pinches the nerve that extends from the bony tunnel in your wrist, which will cause pain.
To ease your discomfort, limit movements or activities that may contribute to the pain. Doing yoga can improve hand strength and may relieve symptoms. Also try using an ergonomic keyboard or mouse and try to avoid sleeping on your hands. Also take short breaks to move your arms or hands, and avoid mindless texting/scrolling, if you can.
