Yes mine are also. I am 37 weeks and my fingers especially feel tight and hard throughout the night. They seem to get stiff and I have to open and close my hands to make it feel better.

I find I have the most swelling when we're driving somewhere. Guess I have a heavy jacket on and the heat is turned up and I get really hot. Also when my hands are down by my sides or in my lap they swell way more. But I only notice it because my wedding rings don't fit any more and if I can get them on, I sure can't get them off! My fingers look like sausages squished into my rings.

I had this as well, my doctor told me that carpal tunnel syndrome is common during pregnancy and perscribed me some wrist braces (she said the problem is actually in the wrist) to sleep in. I never go them though because I couldn't imagine sleeping in them. It comes and goes for me.

Hi - Yep I get swelling in my feet and hands. Usually in the morning - my doctor suggested drinking more water. It has really helped!
