I'm at 37 and a half weeks and strangely, the worst problem I have is painful swollen hands. My feet are swollen too, but they don't really hurt or anything. My hands though, are super stiff and swollen and when I do anything repetitive, my right hand in particular tends to fall asleep. My knuckles and other joints get so painful at night, that I can barely grasp anything. Anyway, I know this is pretty common-- my question is, would heat or cold help? Or both? Or something else?
