My lamaze instructor talked about this on Saturday, she said that it was kind of like carpel tunel and that it happened to a lot of pregnant women, but would go away after delivery.

lol Carabou, a goof-ball you are not - I was kind of concerned when it started too, but then I vaguely remembered someone else posting a long time ago about numbness so did not panic (I love this site, you never feel like you are the only one with whatever is the latest pregnancy mystery popping up).
I am going for my check-up on Thursday so will ask my doc too (if I remember, high chance I forget, must write down a list) and will post her advice. take care and try not to worry.

I've been guzzling water like crazy for the past few months. I had never been very good at drinking the amount of water I need per day but that's changed. I thought the weird tingliness/numbness probably had something to do with added pressure on certain nerves and such and I'm really hoping that it goes away quickly once I deliver. In the meantime, though, it's such an annoyance. I'll take everyone's advice and keep up with the water and if it gets too bad I'll break down and call my doctore for the bazillionth time. I know they expect first-time moms to be kind of paranoid but I just can't help feeling like a goofball every time I call them for something.

I have been getting numb and tingly hands and fingers (not arms though) for the past week or so. Especially waking up with them is kind of painful and I have to wiggle them back in to life - they get much better but throughout the day there seems to always be a degree of numbness which I have happy to blame my butter fingers on. My book said it is like carpel tunnel syndrome and normal later on in pregnancy, it is to do with swelling as someone else mentioned and pressure on your nerves or something? I havn't really got swollen hands though? My rings are a little tighter but not so much. Anyway, it's all supposed to subside v quickly after delivery so we should be ok.
Like so many other things in our pregnancy, water water water seems to be our friend in this - so drink up and good luck!

Water, water, water...

I've had a few night where I wake up because my hands are tingling. I find that the days where I get plenty of water, I sleep through the night without any problems as the tingly feeling is probably due to water retention. Also, the days where I do a bit of cardio, my circulation is better and I don't experience the tingling.

So give it a try, can't hurt :-).

For the past 2 months I have not been able to feel 2 of my fingers and my thumb on both hands. My Dr said it was because of the sweeling in my wrist. She told me to get a brace. I got one for my right hand and it helps. At the time I got the one for my right hand my left hand was not as bad however both hands are bad now. The Dr said it will pass once I have the baby. Nights are the worse for me as well.

only one day out of this pregnancy did my arms feel like that. I would worry if it happened often and would consult my ob about it.

For about three or four days my arms have been going kind of numb and tingly. It mainly happens at night but I'm noticing it during the day when I'm active, too. Sometimes it feels like my circulation has been cut off, other times it feels like the veins in my hands are engorged and they feel hot and cumbersome instead of numb and tingly. Has anyone else experienced this?
