So for the past month and some change I've been getting these random, but daily, sensations of numbness on my forehead - in the middle of my eyes.. It feels like I got smacked in the head with a wiffleballbat only w/o the pain (@ first) - and then sometime afterwards I start getting pains @ the nape of my neck..



And ugh! Right now my right pinky and ring finger are numb.. WTH?! Is this pregnancy related or just regular freakishness? I'm wondering if my OB will be concerned @ all about it (I doubt it - are they ever?)



I've also been feeling weak as hell lately.. My face looks like shit, especially under my eyes - I look haggard as fck.. I'm getting so tired I feel like this baby is made of kryptonite or something.. Gahdamn I could use a drink right about now

might just be nerves...if thats the case there is nothing you can do...or it could be circulation...

i would def call about all of that, when my left leg started going numb on me, they told me only to worry if my face started swelling, went numb, stuff like that.

your hand going numb sounds like carpal tunnel, which is common during pregnancy and might or might not go away afterwards. It happens when a nerve in your elbow gets pinched. Try nto to lean on that elbow too often and see if that improves. But DEFINATELY talk to your doctor about the numb sensations in your face. That sounds pretty serious.

This started happening to me and I went to the ER after my entire face went numb. I was diagnosed with bells palsy but on my slip they told me if I started feeling weak to come back...so I would definetly get it checked out. Bells Palsy isnt fun..Its gotten so bad I cant move my lips, nose, blink properly, or even scrunch my forhead. I also get pains like right behind my ear. Its all on my left side though. Go get it checked hun.

Ask your Dr.
Could be circulation issues?
