Almost all pregnant mothers will observe increased weight to some extent during their pregnancy, which can put much stress on your joints as your pregnancy goes forward.
Likewise, many women will develop excessive water in body parts like ankles, hands and sometimes, even fingers. These occurrences make the joints tough to move and in some adverse scenarios; can even lead to Carpal Tunnel Disorder in the hands and wrists.
In unusual cases, irritated joints could be an indication of exposure to the Parvovirus (also termed as ‘Fifth Disease' or ‘Slapped Cheek Syndrome'), which can pose many risks of birth faults and miscarriage.
