Answer: Hello! CTS is common in pregnancy. It happens when there is a build-up of fluid (oedema) in the tissues in your wrist. This swelling squeezes a nerve, called the median nerve, that runs down to your hand and fingers, causing tingling and numbness. You may also find your grip is weaker and it's harder to move your fingers.  hand splints to wear at night. Splints will stop you from curling your hands while you sleep.  You could place your hands in ice-cold water or use a bag of frozen peas against the painful area on your wrist. Gently exercise your fingers and wrists to help move the excess fluid, and keep your hands raised whenever possible. You could also try placing green or white cabbage leaves on your wrists to draw out excess fluid and relieve the swelling. The leaves should be wiped clean but not washed, and may be cooled in the fridge, but not in the freezer.  Wrap the leaves around your wrists to make a compress. Leave them until they become wet, then repeat with fresh leaves until the pain is reduced.  Also have a balanced diet. Eating foods high in vitamin B6 can help to promote a healthy nervous system. Good sources are: sunflower and sesame seeds dark green vegetables, such as broccoli Garlic avocados Take care
