It hurts

By kate on February 22nd, 2006

The swelling in my hands has gotten painful. Several joints in my thumbs and index fingers are tender to the touch, and worse when in motion. The only time it feels OK is if I’m not moving my hands at all, or if I’m using the computer. (Believe it or not, mousing/typing is the easiest activity for my hands because they remain in a fairly neutral position.) I have new-found sympathy for arthritis sufferers, because I’m guessing it feels like this. The worst part is that there’s nothing I can do except wait for the birth. Ouch.
