I'm 34 weeks pregnant and my fingers are tingly...is this serious?

  I'm 34 weeks pregnant and my fingers are tingly...is this serious?

It sounds like carpal tunnel syndrome. The carpal tunnel is the conduit in the wrist through which the nerves to your hand pass. It's quite rigid and if your hands and soft tissues swell-as they do in pregnancy-this can squeeze the nerves in this 'tunnel' causing tingling, 'pins and needles' and sometimes quite severe pain in your hands and fingers. It isn't serious, but will only get better after baby is born. If it's severe, painkillers such as paracetamol may help-or a physio may give you wrist-splints.
