So sorry Mamma I had this for my entire 3rd trimester and about 1 1/2 months after birth and it was terrible!! Wearing a brace will definitely help. I had it in both hands. My doc suggested taking a big spoon, putting it in your palm, and then wrapping it with an ace bandage (in case you don't want to buy the braces). It works but I sprung for the braces since I had to wear mine during the day. There are stretching videos on YouTube if you search under carpel tunnel stretching. HTH :-)

Re: Numb hands

I got this last pregnacy but not this one yet. Sorry I can't be of more help!

My doctor did say that I shouldn't worry about it unless I got "mikey mouse" sized glove hands.

Re: Numb hands

I have this problem as well. I actually had carpal tunnel syndrome prior to my first pregnancy 6 years ago. Now, after giving birth to my 3rd baby 6 weeks ago, I'm having more trouble than ever! I went to see an Ortho-surgeon but he doesn't want to do the surgery because I have a NB baby. I agree. So, I am stuck not being able to do much at all.
