Hand pain: You may have arthritis or some spasticity due to CP. Please see your doc. He/she will diagnose and treat accordingly. I also see a history of malnourishment. That can make everything worse. Please talk w/doctor about that. He/she can refer you to a nutritionist. Peace and good health.

Until after delivery: If you already have significant swelling, you can expect it to continue until a couple of weeks after delivery. It will probably vary from day-to-day, depending on diet, activity level and weather. It will generally get worse after delivery for a few days and finally resolve 2-6 weeks after delivery.
