I...Have become comfortably numb

Name that song!

Comfortably? Not at all!

Numb? Yes, in both hands!!!

Swollen fingers? Yup, like polish sausages! Serious!!! I will spare you any pictures but if you go to your local grocer and check out the polish sausages you'll get the picture.

Over the last few weeks the numbness and amount of swelling has progressively gotten worse. I had mentioned it to my midwife a few times before and was told "not to lay on them and keep them elevated." Easy peasy lemon squeezy, I thought, but it didn't help. It was getting to the point that I was having issues with everyday tasks. SO on Friday, I marched myself into the OB Triage to have myself checked out. I just couldn't take it anymore!

I was hoping that my blood pressure wasn't the cause. Which it shouldn't had been since it had been fine the entire pregnancy. And it wasn't! Apparently it is just Carpel Tunnel.

WHAT! I didn't have it this bad with Orion!!! It is horrible and I don't wish it upon anyone.

So here I sit patiently waiting for my appointment with Physical Therapy just to get some braces for my hands.
