This happened about two weeks ago for a day or two, and then I noticed it last night and this morning. My thumb feels numb. The only thing I can find on this type of thing related to pregnancy is carpel tunnel syndrome. But it said that it usually happens around 5 or 6 months or so from fluid retention. I'm not really retaining extra fluids at this point...I'll be 9 weeks tomorrow and I haven't gained any weight really at this point and don't feel like I'm retaining water. Could this still be what it is? Anyone else have this happen?

Yes, I did two weeks ago. It's normal, has to do with fluid retention and swelling, and is possibly carpal-tunnel-related.

Okay, that's what I was thinking. It was just wierd because the first time it happened 2 weeks ago I had just gotten some blood drawn and at first thought I had some wierd reaction to getting my blood drawn, lol. It's not painful at least, just a little annoying.
