Hi any mummies gave birth and hands or fingers numb ?
I had it after I gave birth to my baby boy. Was very worried and spoke to doctors about it. Doc told me not to panic, most likely it is carpel tunnel that will subside. Reason this happens is becuase of all of the excess fluids during pregnancy and labor.Read more

I had Carpel tunnel in both hands during late pregnancy. I'm 4 weeks post partum and my left hand has not completely recovered to pre pregnancy state; my right hand has recovered. The numbness and stiffness are much better with each week though.Read more
Yes still have it. Waiting to recover from c section to do postnatal massage to hopefully help with the water retention that is causing the stiffness.
Hi, Yes it is normal to feel numbness due to extra fluids in the body during pregnancy. But it will be get back to normal after birth
Me! During pregnancy, I felt them in both hands. Currently, I’m in my 2 weeks postpartum, only feel it on my right hand
Yes it’s normal. It will go way after a month or two.
Yes me. Took about 4 months to recover.
I gave birth 4 months ago and now my hands start to feel numb often before I sleep or lye in my bed...😐 is it normal?
- Hi mummies, how do you stop baby from fingers/hands? My little one is 3months old but keep eating fingers/hands and keep scratching/rub herself.
That’s completely normal:) baby’s discovering that she has hands, and this is part of their learning. Soon she’ll grab everything and put them in her mouth. You don’t have to stop her at this stage. They need this to learn how to eat in the future too. And sucking on the hand is comforting to baby, and baby learns to self soothe. You can wean off the sucking next time :)Zera. OO
- I'm 34 weeks pregnant and the joints on my fingers are getting sore and numb and arthritis-like. I cant open the door or bottles because my fingers are not having the usual strength. Just wondering if its just me or any other mum feels the same.
The soreness and numbness are due to the water retention in your fingers, I'm sure your legs are swelling up as well. It's pretty normal. I couldn't even clench my fists when I was pregnant. Refrain from eating salty foods, and try to exercise regularly. Don't worry about feeling clumsy. Take foods that are high in potassium and drink more water! I also try to massage away the fluid by squeezing my fingers and working them back towards my wrists. It does help for a short while. Sadly the retention doesn't go away. On some days you feel good, some days you feel worse and that's normal. After 6 weeks postpartum the fluids will start to go away. http://www.thebump.com/a/swollen-hands-during-pregnancyAnonymous
- My baby is teething and likes to suck her fingers. How often and how do you usually clean your baby’s hands? Wet wipes or towel?Jas
