Pains in my hands

I am 42 and pregnant for the 5th time. My boys are 21, 18, 15, & 13! I am very active & healthy but am having a terrible time with my hands! They feel like they are asleep. I wake up crying. I have done everything suggested....watch salt, drink water, hand braces, sleeping on left side, massages, etc. I have always had easy pregnancies. I am so uncomfortable and not sleeping. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you have pregnancy induced carpal tunnel syndrome. I had it pretty bad with my first. I had to pretty much wear the brace all the time - even when sleeping. I also had to limit my time on the computer because that made it worse. The good news is that it went away after delivery. Unfortunately there is not much you can do about it.
