There is no proven way to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome in pregnancy, but you can reduce the pressure on wrists and hands in the following ways:
If you are doing work from home. If you have to use the computer keyboard continuously for work, then press its button lightly. If you have to write for a long time, write with a large size pen that has a soft place to hold it.
Keep the posture fine while working. If the posture is not right, your wrists, fingers and hands may get affected. Also, keep in mind that your computer mouse is comfortable and it does not strain your wrist.
If you are working in a cold environment, you may feel more pain and stiffness in your hands. If it is not possible to control the temperature at work, then wear gloves without fingers and keep your hands and wrists warm.
Rest your hands occasionally while working. Spread and rotate your wrists and hands every once in a while. Also, if possible, do some other work in between. Especially when you use a device that has a tingling or a lot of emphasis.
Pay attention to the position of the wrists. Avoid turning your wrists straight up or down. The comfortable middle pose is the best. Keep the keyboard equal to or below your elbow.
