Woke up with 1 swollen hand??


When I woke up this morning my left hand was really swollen, it was difficult to clench my fist. It went back to normal after a few hours and my legs, feet and right hand were fine!

Has anyone else had this before? I am 30 weeks pg with twins! xxx

I read somewhere that you should always get unsymettrical swelling checked out asap. Can you just call your mw? A quick urine dip and Bp should be enough to put your mind at rest. But don't leave it, and especially don't leave it if you have headaches too. Any serious headaches, go to a&e.

I hope it was nothing, like you laid on it or something! But please double check.

Well I will call midwife tomorrow but they only work on Tues and Thurs I think. I will call the twin midwife at my hospital too and see if someone will talk to me. It is so hard to get someone to talk to about things in an emergency. Thanks hun x

I really don't know. Tonight I can feel that my hands are feeling hot and a little swollen, I wouldn't be surprised if they are both swollen tomorrow.

My blood sugar level is currently being tested daily due to Gestational Diabetes and my blood sugar levels have been really high today. I feel different today. Just don't feel right. I just don't know who to contact as everyone I see at the hospital seems to make it sound that they are on the end of the phone anytime, but when I need them they are not there!!!

If that is the case you need to be seen. Asap - go to your doctor as an emergency appointment or a&e even. It is nothing to do with gd - but I would suspect pre- eclamsia which can be life threatening for all three of you.

I have an appointment with the midwife tomorrow. What I don't understand is that about 10 days ago I was diagnosed with really low blood pressure. I thought a symptom of pre-eclampsia was high blood pressure?? Midwife was supposed to call me back today but she didn't!!!

Hopefully I will get it all looked at tomorrow and see what happens from there x

lol, well I woke today and both hands were slightly swollen, the right hand went down but the left stayed swollen. I am a little worried about it in case it is the onset of pre-eclampsia but I am hoping the midwife can put my mind at rest tomorrow x
