I had that too. Might be Carpal tunnel (google it :-)). I wore a wristband to keep my wrist straight at night which helped

I get this even when I'm not pregnant. It might be carpal tunnel or it could be to do with how you're sleeping, by that I mean, your brain might be coming around faster than the rest of your body. When we sleep our limbs become sort of 'paralysed' to stop us acting out our dreams, the pins and needles might be your hand 'waking up' if you get what I mean...

Yup - combination of a trapped nerve in my shoulder and hideous carpal tunnel syndrome. It got progressively worse I'm afraid, and was almost unbearable by the end, like my hands had been dipped in boiling fat. However you can do clever shoulder exercises to release the shoulder nerve and your GP should be able to refer you for physio so they can assess and give you splints if need be/specific exercises to help.
