Numness in right hand

My wife is 6 months pregnant & she is feeling continuous numness in her right hand & sometimes some muscular pain in her arms. Currently she is having medication for Calcium & vitamin D. Is it related to pregnancy or vitamin D/calcium deficiency? Should I visit a gynecologist or an orthopedist?

Hello... Uterus enlarges as pregnancy advaces may compresse vessels leading to numbness.. It's quite normal ... She must be active, walking helps in relieving numbness.. Vitamin d is given in calcium deficiency, calcium defeciancy causes muscle spasm, if it's severe take her to orthopedic surgeon.
