It's can be normal. Your joints and skin, everything are stretching and loosening. That could cause pain. But you should talk to your doctor on your next visit. They may be able to give you something that can be done to help the pain. Or the pain and the pregnancy could have nothing to do with each other.

The joints between the carpal bones are irregular synovial joints. The bones are held together more firmly by a relatively complex network of ligaments.

Phalanges are bones in your fingers and metacarpals and carpals and bones in your hands and wrists. Metatarsals and tarsals are bones in your feet and ankles.

The 2nd through 5th digits on both hands have 3 bones (proximal, middle and distal phalanges) and 3 joints, including the metacarpophalangeal, proximal and distal interphalangeal joints. The 1st digit, however, only has 2 bones and 2 joints.
