I get it every now and then, and usually only when I am putting pressure on it. I remember the last month or so of my pregnancy with my first, the tips of my fingers were permanently numb.

Yep, I get this quite a bit. I honestly don't remember getting it during my last pregnancies, but I've been having it since a couple months into this one.

Sounds like it. I had it with B1 and it drove me crazy. I asked my OB what I could do for it and she said "Deliver and then wait 4-6 weeks" UGH

This is my problem. I can't figure out how to position my arms so they don't go numb while sleeping.

I had carpal tunnel and tendonitis before I ever got pregnant. I have made good use of these items:

For Tendonitis:
Amazon.com: MedSpec Universal Ryno Lacer Wrist Brace Long - Left - Black: Health & Personal Care

If you buy it, make sure you look under the "color" option to select whether you want it to be a left brace or a right brace. I got into a wicked email fight with them about mine and I had to get Amazon involved. This was because when I selected it off the main search page on Amazon it was listed as "left" (what I needed) it did not say anything about options in the description or in the ordering box. I didn't care about color so why would I click on the color options box? They've changed the picture since but it was also a left handed picture when I got mine. So, labeled left, picture left, and no instructions stating that I have to pick a hand. Grrr. Still makes me mad today. The product is great though.

For regular carpal tunnel:

Walmart has a few braces that will work nicely, I would recommend one that extends further down your arm to keep you from forcing it to bend in your sleep. MedSpec on Amazon also has a few nice models that do that.

I dealt w/ carpal tunnel before my babies...but it was never really severe. However, holy moly, when I was pregnant with DS it totally flared up beginning 2nd Tri and lasted all the way to the end. Although, my hands never went numb, my wrists would just seize up on me and I wouldn't be able to bend/flex them and then I would get the tingles and shooting pains from my wrists into my my hands. It only happened at work and I would have to stop typing (worst trigger for it), put my hands in the air and start working them around and eventually they would start to give again. So far this time, it has started again but doesn't seem as intense.

Plus if I hold anything too tightly for even a short time. Got it before but I cannot remember it happening so early on...I am app 23 weeks. Hoping it goes away soon or at least after having baby
