Achy Joints...37weeks?

All night my back has been hurting and this morning every joint in my body is sore and achy like I have arthritis or something, I expect back and hip pain maybe even knee pain at this stage, but even my fingers and toes, and wrist, hurt. I didn't have this with my other pregnancies, anyone else having this experience? TIA? any relief besides laying down and taking some tylenol?

Hand and wrist pain is common in pregnancy. It has something to do with hormones (yeah!) and the increase fluid levels constricting the nerves in your arms. Google carpal tunnel and pregnancy. The other soreness is probably caused by the same thing. The relaxin makes everything loosely-goosey. Nerves get pinched.

Cold packs will help. Cold is better because heat makes things even looser.

If you can, jump into a pool. The weightlessness made me feel better. I even liked a water aerobics class. Okay, I realize that means getting into a swim suit but it was worth it.

Thanks, I didn't know if epsom was safe or not for pregnancy. My fingers lock up every night and now my knee is killing me. I ran cross country in college so know I already have some knee damage but this extra weight is killing me. Only 7 more days to EDD, Yay!

Yes, I had that too. I think it's the relaxin (sp?).
