I guess an upside to getting married while pregnant is that my ring fits my swollen fingers. I know the rest of my rings (daughter's pride, birthstone, and promise rings) are way too tight now. I tried to wear them out to dinner with DH one night and my poor fingers had red marks around them after an hour or so.
The downside is that my wedding ring will probably be too big after the swelling goes down.
I had to remove mine weeks ago. They are now on a chain around my neck
I've never had to remove my rings for any of my pregnancies. They pretty much stay the same size throughout. : )
With my first two, I did have to stop wearing my watch and necklace. But not my rings. This one, I can wear everything.
My rings have been off since the beginning of the 2nd trimester! I went engagemet ring shopping with my best friend and when the store offered to clean mine, I had so much trouble getting them off that I figured it was best to go ahead and leave them off!
I felt so naked without them at first and to top it off my husband was deployed for the first 4 months, so being without them was really rough...I felt like the rings were the one thing that I had, that he gave me, and meant so much. It was hard to deal with not having him or my rings to hold on to! Luckily I have my hubby back in my arms now and I'm crossing my fingers that I can wear the rings again a few weeks after our daughter arrives!
I took mine off the other day just in case.
Last time, I ended up needing a c-section and my ring was stuck on and they didn't know what to do! They end up putting tape around it. I don't think that they even could have cut it off because it's tungsten carbide.
My OB saw I was wearing mine still around 6-7 months, and he said to me with half a smile "they only cry for a little while when I send them to the jeweller to be cut off".
I took mine off that day and bought a $15 fake wedding ring.
I have not had any swelling, yet but just to be safe, I took my off last week.
I had mine sized so it just fits and I never take it off but wanted to be better safe than sorry.
I have been really lucky with not swelling, especially in the ridiculous heat here in Philly. But I finally had to take them off last week, especially my e-ring, the wedding band I can *just* manage to fit. A girl I work with had to have hers cut off last summer and she was so upset..I didn't want to have to go thru the same thing!
I think next time I am at the mall I am going to buy a cheapie "diamond" maybe something that is NMS and just a fun piece of jewelry for the next month or so!
Omg, this just happened to me this morning! I put it on and it was so tight and squeezing my finger, I couldn't get it off! I put all this lotion on it and it still wasn't coming off! It took me about 5-10min this morning to finally get it off. Made me so sad I just got it cleaned! lol
With my first pregnancy I took them off half way through.
This time I cannot wear mine. But my mom's fit me still so I wear hers. (she went to dance with Jesus in Oct). I do though take them off every night before bed because thats when I experience the most swelling.
I'm still wearing mine, and plan to until delivery, my fingers have not got bigger.
