I even asked my doctor. He said that hand numbess is from swelling but I said I have no swelling at all. In fact I am shrinking just not in clothes size. I will no my results Wen. I just hope that it is g.d so I can get things straight but if not I am back in for more testing.

Hands and arms could be signs of carpal tunnel. I hear this is common in pregnancy. Just met 2 people who had this happen to them.
