Yes I did encounter such pain. I used a wristguard to avoid further straining the area. It’s called mummy’s hand syndrome. Fortunately for me, it went away on it’s own. No medication required for me, just wristguard. Hope you feel better soon!

It's a common symptom, I also had it and many of my pregnancy symptoms didn't go away until a month after giving birth. If it's causing you a lot of pain and discomfort you can go to GP for treatment
