Default Wrist bruising on step-ups

I do New Rules of Weight Lifting for Women, and I love it.

I bumped my dumbbell weights up to 35 pounds in each hand, and I have no problem with the muscles I am supposed to be working. However, when I was doing it, I noticed that I was losing feeling in my wrist. The weight didn't feel too heavy - I lifted it without issue - but as I progressed, I started to lose feeling. I also feel like I bumped my wrists with the weights, and I now have several small bruises on each wrist.

Thoughts? I really want to keep using the 35s, and maybe get to the 40s soon, but the numbness and bruising make me wonder if there's a better way to increase the weights or a way to protect my wrists better with the dumbbells?
