"hands fall asleep": Pregnancy can cause retention of liquids , and this swelling can compress nerves more often than when not pregnant (18 weeks). Sleep is deeper in pregnancy, and the normal signals to shift position are not always activated, so circulation is interrupted especially to arms/hands, which is temporary and not of concern.

For the sake of your and your baby's health you should be under the care of a doctor and you should discuss such issues with her/him. Wish you good health and a healthy baby!
