wedding rings

How long after your lo arrived did you wait/ will you wait to resize you wedding band and ring? I am really hoping my fingers are going to get smaller ( I have only been with an os baby for 10 days) but I miss wearing them so so much!

Any stms have experience with this?

    I haven't been able to wear mine in months along with all of my shoes. I'm a week past due, hoping to resize ring and go shoe shopping for my birthday next month!

  • Surprisingly, my fingers never swelled, so I've been able to wear them the whole way through. That's the ONE pregnancy symptom I actually didn't get.

  • I haven't tried yet! I think I will give it another few weeks.

  • I'm 4 weeks PP and still can't wear them. It's making me really sad.
  • I'm not even trying until summer is over bc they were tight to start with especially in the summer. I'm wearing my right hand ring on my left hand for now.

  • I think it was about 2 weeks before I could. I'm only wearing my wedding band because the other one might scratch LO. 
  • Took mine off @ 37 weeks (except days that were like 80°+), back on 5 days pp.
  • Mine fit except for really hot days the last few weeks. Luckily there aren't too many of those in Seattle.
  • Mine don't need resizing. I put mine back on a couple days after I came home from the hospital.

  • Within 2 weeks.


  • I'm 4 weeks pp now and I could put them on the other day. Although I probably shouldn't have - it was a tight fit and they were hard to get off. I'll give it another try in a few weeks...
  • 3 weeks pp. Don't forget, most labors you are hooked to the iv and they pump you full of fluids. Long labor- lots of fluids. That said, this time around I took mine off at 8 months (humidity) and they went back on at 3 wks pp.

  • I never had to take my rings off during my first pregnancy (fall baby). This time I switched to my grandma's rings because they were a size up sometime in May I think? And I had to take those off at the end of this pregnancy :/. I tried getting them on last week (1 week pp) and they went on but were very snug, so I haven't been wearing them. Hoping at least those fit soon, it's been so long since I've worn my actual wedding rings, I miss them!
