I have a sensation of pins and needles in my hands, is this normal?

Pins and needles, numbness or pain in the fingers and hand is probably due to carpal tunnel syndrome. The nerve within the carpal tunnel can be compressed by water retention. The pain may be greater at night or when waking up.

If it becomes very uncomfortable, talk to your physician.

This discomfort will disappear after the birth.
