Carpal Tunnel anyone?

Yet another lovely side effect of pregnancy.....Carpal Tunnel syndrome.

Yes, I work in IT and yes, I probably spend more time on my laptop at home than I should so chances are the typing has definitely aggravated it. I have never had it before, but apparently all of this lovely fluid retention in my hands has really contributed to it.

I woke up last night to go to the bathroom, came back to bed and did the little dance I had to do in order to get to a kinda sorta comfortable position and while doing so.....shooting pain halfway up my arm and into my hand.


Then again....I suppose the chinese food I had for dinner last night wasn't the lowest sodium option. But it was Chinese New Year....what's a girl to do?!?!

Speaking of Chinese New Year....It is the Year of the Rat. I'm an Ox, what are you?
