Ok so I got a new symptom last night. Well actually not new, my hands started to fall asleep at night for the last 3 or so weeks now. Not painful just weird more than anything. Last night my hands started to ache and today same deal, getting too painful to ignore. I am really hoping it doesn’t get much worse, it’s pretty brutal working a desk job where all I do is handle a mouse and type on a keyboard! Any tips are most welcome. I’m going to look into a wrist support/brace today after work. All these new things happening to me!! As crappy as I feel sometimes, I’m welcoming the signs of pregnancy as it gives me a slight peace of mind. Got this 💪🏼 #pregnancycarpaltunnel #ow

Update : Getting bigger 👶🏼✨ My obgyn measured my belly today and I’m measuring right on track 32 centimetres at 32 weeks. She is just under 5 pounds too! 😍 So crazy. Her kidneys are still a bit dilated so he will do an ultrasound after she is born but he thinks this will be no problem and is very common. My ice chewing is just my obsession - I love it so much and it cools me down, so my iron levels are fine & thank you to the ladies who told me to get that checked out since that could have been a warning that they were low 😘🙏🏻 I did find out I have pregnancy carpal tunnel though.. I wake up in the morning and my fingers are SO sore. Like I have been holding 20 shopping bags on my fingers it hurts to move them, my wrists are fine though. Definitely could not pick up a mug or anything in the morning for a couple hours until they calm down a bit, but in the middle of the night is when the pain starts. He told me to sleep with wrist supports for it but I wonder how long this will last after pregnancy? I just don’t want to have a fresh babe and struggle trying to change her in the middle of the night with all the snap onesies and stuff 😕 Anyone else get carpel tunnel during pregnancy and what did you do? ♥ Xx
I can’t get over how swollen my feet & ankles have gotten within the last few days. Along with my sausage fingers. My face is so puffy, I feel like I’m going to explode! But it’s August which is baby month & depending on my blood results from today, I might be getting induced the week of the 13th 😳 I know she’s super cozy in there, but I can’t wait to meet her 🥜 This week I’ve been making banana & peanut butter smoothies for my insane sweet tooth cravings.... wondering if that’s why I gained SIX pounds in ONE week 😳🙈 I’m a blimp. I’m exhausted. I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever but it’s all worth it for this little mini inside my belly 💕 #36weeks #cankles #blimp #preggo #pregnant #swollen #sausagefingers #pregnancycarpaltunnel #inbedby6pm
39 wks/5 days!
This past wknd was a ROUGH one for this mama both physically & mentally. 2 days of nausea, vomiting, headache, & body pains.
Also discovered a new pregnancy issue: pregnancy carpal tunnel?? Which I had never heard of until my doc & chiropractor added it to my chart along w/ a friend who had it during her pregnancy 😫
I can go on, but the point of this isn't just to complain or even get a bunch of sympathy messages. It's for my ladies out there struggling!
With pregnancy, postpartum, parenting, & those trying to get pregnant. Know that you aren't alone on the crappy days! Social media sometimes paints a picture of 100% bliss, but there are days that are tough & sometimes knowing you're not alone helps.
Try to see the beauty in all of the chaos 💕 And as long as you're trying, you're doing the best you can! 😘

Carpal Tunnel..... The reason why I purchased The Car Seat Key! Who had this during their pregnancy? Who still suffers?
The problem with going to bed at 8:45pm in a tiny hut with your hubby and little girl is that you wake up at 3:45am... I can’t sleep... I’ve mentally redesigned the kitchen, front and back garden, come up with new frame ideas, thought about baby names and now I have major munchies, tummy rumbles and could murder a decaf brew... but I can’t put the kettle on as I would wake my sleeping beauties 🤪 so I’ve munched the free biscuits and decided to browse instaland! And don’t I know that I’ll be yawning my head off my 11am! 😆😩😆 just a quick thank you to everyone who has already purchased a deposit for the grey linear 12 tile frame, you’ll be keeping this pregnant mama going through July and August I think ;-) I won’t be taking anymore orders for this style after the end of May. So search ‘grey deposit’ on the shop if you want to grab yours and have it done before September! I’ve typed this much on the phone and now have carpal tunnel in both hands 😳😩😩 pregnancy cruelty 😉 did anyone else get this? Worse second time around xx #goodmorning #mummiesofinstagram #awaketooearly #cantsleep #obviouslytooexcited #altontowers #enchantedvillage #pregnancymunchies #carpaltunnelsucks #photoframes #smileswithtiles #pregnantmummy #tooearlytobeup #pregnancycarpaltunnel
When your feet aren’t swelling, but your hands are 😳 I get dead arms all night when I sleep, it’s so much fun. And it also happens throughout the day if I hold my hands up for too long... 3ish more weeks to go, but I’m so ready now...

This little guy still has a hard time staying asleep 😴 at night and still wakes up at least 2-3 times. I know one day that'll stop so I don't worry about it too much 🤷🏻♀️ However I have been putting him in bed with me lately because of my "carpal tunnel"(still trying to figure out if it's really that) I get this shooting pain that goes straight up from my wrists to my elbows and sometimes even up to my shoulders; so naturally getting up hurts, as well holding him for feedings. Since having Ayden I've definitely become a light sleeper and am very aware of how I sleep but he doesn't even stay in bed with me long....I'll probably only get him to lay with me when it's closer to when he begins to wake up. (Definitely awake in this picture btw🤗)Any other mamas out there suffering from carpal tunnel or something similar? How are you coping? ⬇️⬇️⬇️ leave suggestions below I'd definitely love to know! ❤️

Anyone else get pregnancy carpal tunnel?
I remember getting diagnosed with it when I was pregnant with Paislei... I never had it with Laikyn luckily! 😉
But... I’ve started to notice symptoms again with this pregnancy! 😬
Thus the reason for my hand being back into its stellar Walmart carpal tunnel brace! 😂
Oh the joys! 😂
Not gonna lie, I've reached the point where I'm super tired, fat, hot, sweaty. Awake all night breathing fire and getting falcon punched by baby fists regularly and quite alien like. Not to mention I'm done bending over, yeah f that shit dropped on the floor, which is a lot since my hands are so numb from my #pregnancycarpaltunnel
😂 I need a light at the end of the tunnel. In honor of #throwbackthursday
I'm busily reminding myself this was NINE DAYS #postpartum
with Lucah. Just gotta hang onnnnnn [ten more weeks, ten more weeks] 🐄🐋🐖🐷🐮💩
How cuuuute is my shirt!?!? 🐘💙🐘💙🐘 Soooo, today was a very productive day with my Mama!! The Baby's Furniture is all bought and ready to be delivered sometime in July! 🤗🤗🤗 The Dressers, a little armoire that I bought in Ikea, and the crib from Buy Buy Baby from my parents!! I feel such a sense of accomplishment right now thanks to my mother!!
And to those of you who told me to go to Buy Buy Baby instead of Babies R Us .... you guys were completely right!!! That place was much nicer, had better things, more organized, and the staff was way more helpful!!! So I registered there as well! Gotta go back to scan items lol hopefully this time it'll be more fun!
I'd also like to add (to those of you who asked about my last appointment) everything went well!! My glucose test came out great, no gestational diabetes!! Baby's heartbeat was super strong and they found it right away even though I have an #AnteriorPlacenta
. It was so relieving to hear 💓💓💓 I'm healthy & the baby's healthy, the only thing is that I have developed pregnancy induced carpal tunnel 😕 oh well. It sucks and it hurts bc there's fluid in my joints. Some mornings I can't bend my fingers back, I feel shooting pains in my arms and wrists, and at times I get pins and needles sensation and my fingertips go numb 😒 But there are worse things that could happen! At least ETHAN IS HEALTHY! THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS! (FYI my fingers and toes are SAUSAGES!) 😤

Miss Emmy won "Wacky Wednesday" today at school!!!🎉She was excited, but I am double excited because I managed all those pigtails & bows with my tingly sleepy hands... #pregnancycarpaltunnel #nofun #themomlife
The only pregnancy issue is my hands falling asleep. I bought this the other day and it's helped so much. #pregnancycarpaltunnel #ace
The most satisfying food this past month is this: 🍉🍉🍉 I can't get enough! And yes, I did buy overpriced, pre-cut watermelon y'all. 'Cause this carpal tunnel is for real and I'm not about to cut through that thick rind. 😆 #WorthIt
So...my choices are either type dexterously and quickly with minimal mistakes but no feeling in my fingertips and pain in my palm...or wear this brace and type everything wrong three times with increasing frustration but reduced symptoms...hooray...?
#pregnancywoes #pregnancycarpaltunnel #sofetch
It has been months since started and still hurts...
After the Baby Shower Celebration, next day was a challenge cleaning and washing tons of dishes and pans...from whole morning till early afternoon makes my arms and fingers feels like the ligaments is pulling out of my hands.... 😭😭😭😭😭. Go away Carpal Tunnel Syndrome!!!😫😫😫 It really hurts and can't sleep well especially at night... #carpaltunnelsyndrome #carpalattack #pregnancycarpaltunnel #hurting
And it's back where it belongs! I haven't been able to wear my wedding ring for the last 4 months due to swelling and pregnancy carpal tunnel. (Who knew that was even a thing) I know it sounds weird but I missed it so much! I was ecstatic to see it finally fit this morning! #weddingring #pregnancyproblems #sohappy #pregnancycarpaltunnel
35w2d: And the major development over the past week or so....carpal tunnel. 😏 I have been so lucky to experience very few annoying or painful symptoms of pregnancy so far---and even when I have, I have tried to smile through them and be careful not to complain since pregnancy was something that I longed to experience. But this carpal tunnel is so painful that I have woken Zac up with my crying in the early mornings when I wake up to a numb/stinging/aching hand that throbs all the way up to my elbow. I have tried stretches throughout the day, ice packs and numerous wraps/splints for at night. I have found the best relief from wrapping the more painful hand (my right) in an ace bandage using the metal splint from another brace to hold my wrist straight and using just a light wrist support on my left hand. I am thankful that writing and typing are only a small part of my job! There is always a silver lining----I just really hope this all goes away when Amelia arrives! #35w2d #35weeks #8monthspregnant #3rdtrimester #babygirl #ameliajane #carpaltunnel #pregnancycarpaltunnel #pardonmyrant #inpainbutstillthankful #dueinseptember #september2015 #september2015baby
bump...gettin on out there! 😜 I've had such a great pregnancy, but have developed a not-so-fun side effect this week, thought by many to be "pregnancy carpal tunnel".😳 I have some pretty incredible sharp throbbing pain in the pads and nail area of my pointer finger👆 and thumb👍 on my left hand...been going on since Tuesday, and really hoping for some relief from this and that it doesn't last 8-9 more weeks! Anyone else struggled with this in pregnancy??? My symptoms seem a little different/extreme than some cases I read about. Not sure what to do about it! Anyhoo, it's worth it obviously, but if there's a remedy I'd like to know about it. I currently can't play guitar, or do much anything with my left hand....and I also have a nursery to get fixed up!😁👊 #mollygracebeasley #babybump #pregnancy #leggomyprego #preggoprobs #preggostyle #pregnancycarpaltunnel
