'It's A Boy!' & Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Help!

So yesterday the husband and I found out our little of bundle of joy is a boy! I knew that all along, but anyway, he is doing very very well and all is good with him! 


Apart from the fact that last night I started with pregnancy-related carpal tunnel syndrome in both of my wrists. Which apparently is very common from 20 weeks onward... Just arrived as I hit 20 weeks! I must be a walking textbook of pregnancy related problems. Just a shame that now I'll find it awfully difficult to type, and actually do normal day to day things as my thumbs and fingers are shot. Cue husband trying to help me brush my teeth this morning... Anyway, if anyone can help me with tips etc on how to relieve the pain, and trust me, I'm in agony, they would be really welcomed. At the moment I'm taking codeine, wearing wrist splints on both wrists and trying a pack of frozen peas on my arms!
