Have you had to remove your rings? What did you do with them?

I think I'm going to have to stop wearing my rings...  I take them off every morning just to make sure I can, but it's getting really difficult.  And by afternoon, there's no way I can get them off!  I am trying to decide if I should wear my wedding and engagement rings on a chain around my neck, or just put them away until after the baby is born.  I am afraid of the chain breaking if I wear them around my neck.

    I wear my ring around my neck after having a day where for twenty minutes I had to force it off my finger with soap lol

    I took mine off 2 weeks ago. I could still get them on and off, but it seemed like it was becoming more of a struggle and I didn't want to end up getting them stuck.

    I put mine away in my jewelry box for safe keeping rather than wearing them around my neck (I hate necklaces, they just end up in my cleavage.)

    I bought a $30 dummy solitaire CZ & Rhodium bridal set on overstock.com (and I've gotten so many compliments lol.)

    I think around 30 weeks they went off. I put them in our lockbox.

    I wear them when it's not hot or humid (which is rarely this summer).  I just have them on my nightstand and then when my fingers aren't swollen, I put them on.  It makes me sad to not be able to wear them.  I had a fake ring, but it was a tad over the top so I just don't wear any rings at all.

    Last pregnancy I had to take them off around 30 weeks, and I wore them on a chain around my neck.  I didn't have any issues with breaking, and I think I just left it on all the time.  It ended up being kind of nice, since the pictures from right after he was born have him being snuggled to my chest, right near the rings.

    I wore mine for a hike the other day and took them off in the beginning and handed them to my girlfriend because i felt them getting tighter on me. When she gave them back at the end of the hike I couldn't get them over my knuckle!! I'm glad that I took em off. I've officially stopped wearing them and I keep them in my bedside table!!

    Yes - had to remove them a few months ago.  I opted to just put them away in my jewelry box.  To be honest any other jewelry other than earrings just annoy me because of how swollen I've been and the humidity.  Can't wait to put them back on though :)

    I guess I'm weird in that I don't wear a ring anyway.  I couldn't find a ring I liked as much as my ring from my first wedding so I've just skipped wearing one:P

    I took mine off about a week ago. I had a fake CZ band that looks exactly like my wedding band, which I wore when we traveled last year through asia. It's slightly bigger than my real one so I'm wearing that one for now.

    I've been wearing them around my neck for months. I always get compliments on doing so. I just couldn't take them off and put them away. I needed them on me still. 

    With my scheduled c/s last year, I had to remove the necklace. This year I had an emergency c/s and they left them on. Just a side note to consider?

    I never take my rings off, so they are still on.  Don't know if I could get them off right now if I tried, maybe first thing in the morning.  The jewelry store lady here said the best thing to use to take them off is Windex, it won't leave a residue on the ring.  Just a tip!

    I've been lucky and still have them on.  They get a little tight when it's humid outside but I haven't had any problems besides that.

    I still wear my rings during the day, I take them off at night.  If we are staying in for the day I usually just leave them by the bed.  My rings fit better now then they did before I was pregnant, I have fat fingers :(

    I had to take off my rings a couple of weeks ago. They're currently in my bathroom drawer, but I plan on taking them to a jeweler to have them re-plated.  My rings are white gold and they've been turning yellow for the last year or so, but it takes about a week to get it done and I never wanted to be without my rings for that long.

    I bought a cubic zirconium replacement ring off of overstock.com to wear in the interim and I've gotten a few compliments on it. It's much bigger than my normal ring so people thought DH decided to upgrade my ring as a baby present, hah!

    My husband had me take my rings off at around 20 weeks.  I put mine away in my jewelry box and I bought a diamond wedding band that I got sized so that I could wear it for the rest of my pregnancy.  I definitely miss my rings and hope that I won't have to get them resized after I have the baby.

    I haven't worn mine since I was 3 months along!  I just keep them on my dresser.  I'm afraid to wear them around my neck and lose them somewhere.
