Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Cut the salt out of your diet. The more you cut out the better you will feel. With my first i would wake up in the middle of the night and my fingers would be so sore< i couldnt even move them. Also drink more water.
Yep less salt more water. your hands are retaining water and salt just makes it 50 times worse. Try to stay away from it and you will see results. When you have your baby the medicine and anisteticts will make your hands swell so you should take off your rings before you go to the hospital or you may end up getting your ring cut off. So I would just leave them at home
