    Pregnancy symptom this early?!
    mommyofthree3kids posted:
    I might be crazy! But I just got a new symptom last night. This is something I have had when pregnant before but I can't remember when it started. I was sitting on our sofa last night and my left arm to my wrist started going numb then moved to my right arm. I didn't think much of it, just thinking it was annoying but this morning I got to thinking about how I had this before but the last time I had it was when I was pregnant. Again, this morning it's a little numb like I have to shake it away. I have read that it is a common symptom in pregnancy and I have had it. It's driving me crazy and maybe I am...ugh! Has anyone experienced this early on?

    This piece on pregnancy discomforts lists numbness as one. It says that soaking your hands in warm water or using a heating pad twice a day may help ease the sensation. This article says that tingling, numbness, and pain in the hands are especially common in the last trimester and may be caused by carpal tunnel that usually goes away after pregnancy. I don't think that you are crazy Have you had a chance to take a pregnancy test?

    Hi there, better check when you last ovulated so that you will know when you had sex with your hubby was safe or not, good luck.
