1. tingling in fingers during pregnancy could be due to water retention causing carpal tunnel syndrome [but as only 7 week are there it couldn't be the cause].Try wearing a hand splint at night -- it will keep your hands and wrists immobile while you sleep so you won’t be bending and compressing blood flow.
2. Sometimes with low calcium level for which women are more prone during pregnancy can result in tingling.
3. could be the added pressure of the weight you are gaining, on the spinal cord, causing nerve compression and resulting tingling.
4. Consult your Attending Physician or seek a gynecologist opinion for Orthopedic Consultation for any Vascular pathology/disease!

PS: It’s likely due to swelling that compresses nerves in the wrists, and it tends to get worse as the pregnancy progresses.” So it’s probably nothing to be worried about. But in some cases, it could be a symptom of anemia, carpal tunnel syndrome or sciatica.
