    Default Aching hands/fingers after having bub

    Hi
    I have 2 month old bub & every night the joints in my hands swell and ache. Sometimes my feet ache as well. I have never had this befor bub. Has anyone else had this?

    I have this but I also have arthritis and just assumed it was that coming back after giving birth. The pain in my feet and hands though is different to my usual arthritis pain. It affects my knee the worse ATM from all the sitting and feeding in doing! I am going to ask my OB at my 6 week check up though.

    For me it was where my legs join my body, those joints really hurt. I thought maybe it was sitting in the recliner too long. It eased up but I still have it.

    Might be something to do with fluid retention? I'd suggest you check with your GP if it is becoming a problem.

    It's prob fluid if you've never had it before bub which for me took about 3 months to go away, ( I had a lot of fluid retention)

    I had pain in my joints especially fingers late pregnancy and I assumed it was because the relaxin hormone was loosening everything. It's now over a month after giving birth and my finger joints are still painful, especially when lifting bub for a burp. I hope it will clear soon.

    I had the same thing and it was definitely hormones. Bub is 4.5 months old now and I have no pain now.
