Missing Crochet

So now that baby Gwen is finally here we're so excited and happy. The only downside....the dreaded Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. That last month of pregnancy it flared up really bad to where I was constantly waking up with both of my hands completely numb for most of the morning. Now, it's been constant numbness in the top half of most of my fingers which turns into shooting pain or numbness of my entire hand when I crochet, write, sleep, hold my baby.....yeah, pretty much doing anything.

I'm thinking of going to the clinic this weekend to see if they can prescribe me a brace since none of the pharmacy's I've gone to have had them OTC. But that doesn't help me to get back to my favorite hobby.

Means slow going on any new blankets. Which really sucks since while my sister and mother were down here they reorganized my yarn collection and found four unfinished blankets that I had forgotten about. And! The found a huge bag of the red yarn that I needed to finish one of the jobs I was working on when I was pregnant.

Ugh! Just terrible. One good thing is that some of the other moms I've talked to have said they had the same thing happen to them right after they had their kids and it went away after a few months.

So cross your fingers that happens to me and I don't need surgery! :)


  1. Let's hope you don't need surgery. I think you should post a pic of the baby on the blog!

  2. A few months??!! Man, that sucks. I don't know anything about carpal tunnel - does heat or cold help, like it does for muscle injuries?

    And I totally agree with the baby pic idea. We want baby pics! We want baby pics! :)
