Anyone else getting numb hands/fingers in late pregnancy?

I was just curious if I was the only one getting this.  I looked it up online and I guess its normal, and is caused from swelling and is basically carpal tunnel syndrome.  UGH  its really bad when I sleep or relax with my arm in the wrong position.  Just wanted to see if anyone else was or has experienced this.

I get it all the time too!
Like if I'm crochetting, my right hand or some of my fingers on my right hand will go numb.
Other times my left hand or some of it's fingers go numb for no reason. lol

Other times I wake up and some of my entire limbs are numb.

Specially if I fall asleep on my right side, I'll wake up with all 4 limbs numb.
And if I fall asleep on my left, only m left limbs go numb. lol

I've been told it's normal.
