One night during her third trimester, Cheryl Freiburg, of Point Loma, California, woke up with numb, tingly hands. She recognized the feeling because she'd had mild carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms previously at work. But during pregnancy, her body had swelled as a result of fluid retention, putting major pressure on the nerves in her hands and wrists. "I had to wear braces at night and also at work."

Like Freiburg, many moms-to-be encounter problems that their friends and mother-in-law never dealt with or simply glossed over. Find out about some conditions you might experience.
