Anyone else here got carpal tunnel caused by pregnancy? I do! Yet another fun thing to get here close to the end! ha! Just curious about how common this is and if anyone on here has it too. Thanks! :)

Carpal Tunnel is something I have in trumps. I wake up with stabbing pains in my arms/wrists and my fingers have been numb for a month. How many weeks along are you?

I'm beginning my 36th week. I have had this for maybe a week or so now...

I am starting week 34. The difference is that I have a computer based job. I have to do 20+ hours of computer research (internet based) a week. That is a lot of time on a laptop.

I've had Carpal Tunnel since month 5. It's so awful! I posted about it when it first began and didn't get many responses, so I'm not sure it's that common, but it's certainly not unusual. I sleep in wrist splints from the doctor every single night--when I don't have them on, I wake up hourly with unbearable pain. I highly recommend getting some!

Oh, and I'm 37 weeks.

I had carpal tunnel with my last pregnancy in both hands. This time it's in one. I went to Target and bought a brace from Nexcare that says it's for carpal tunnel. I sleep so much better now without the horrible arm pain and it has cut down significantly on the numbness at night. The worse part about having it in one hand is that it's in my dominant one, of course.

Mine is in both hands, but worse in my dominant hand. I've been considering getting a brace. Maybe I'll do that now since it's helping you girls. I haven't talked to the dr about it yet but am planning on it next week. Thanks for your replies! :)
