    Question Tingling and numbness in hands and feet?

    Hi Ladies,

    Im currently 10wks preggies and i am diabetic,i have started get tingling and some numbness in both my hands and feet.

    Im aware of carpal tunnel syndrome,but it is it normal to get it so early in pregnancy?

    I have put on ALOT of weight since falling pregnant (9kg so far!!)so i dont know if that has anything to do with it

    It not painful just annoying and worrying

    Yes, I have a friend you got carpal tunnel in the first trimester - so unfortunately it can happen early. Do you have lots of extra fluid? Might explain some of the weight gain.

    Be sure to mention it to your care provider.

    Good luck and all the best.

    I had carpel tunnel, but it was painful in hands, not tingling. It could just be due to fluid retention as ticklish said. Do talk to your doc soon tho because if it is carpel tunnel you can get a physio to give you some exercises which really do help and some splints for overnight.
