Clenched fists while sleeping

I’m about 12 weeks pregnant now and I realise every morning when I wake up that my fists are clenched really tight. I believe I’ve been sleeping like this all night for a while now. Is this normal? Does anyone know what it means?

Hi! I heard this is pretty normal and could be a response to stress. Even infants clench their fists too when they sleep. Similar to grinding teeth together when stressed. Are you feeling stressed out lately? You can try laying on your back, bend your elbows so they’re aligned with your head, then clench both fists and don’t let go. Tahan for a while and afterwards you’ll feel lighter!
