Add me in as another who gets the heartburn no matter what, even if I haven't eaten recently.

Wedding Rings


Anyone else having trouble with their wedding ring not fitting anymore? I woke up today and it felt so comfortable, it took a good amount of effort to get it off and there is no getting it back on I hate not being able to wear my rings!

What have you ladies done for past or current pregnancy when this has happened?

I'm debating, I've heard others suggest getting something cheap to wear in its place. So you still look married and don't need to readjust to wearing a ring again.

Or getting it sized, it's just so expensive to resize them though.

I've heard it can take a while after birth till they fit again, some say they never fit again and ending up having to get them resized... I have skinny fingers and like it pretty sung since I worry about it falling off, it's a 5.5 right now. Part of me thinks I won't ever have fingers that size again so might as well resize it now so I can continue to wear it.... Ugh I don't know what to do!!!

That just happened to me this morning! For the second day in a row, they were tight so I finally put them away in their box. Last pregnancy they were never tight, I even wore them when I was delivering her, but this time I'm gaining faster so I guess that changes it. The fact that it's summer might also be affecting it.

I'm not going to resize them just to resize them again after pregnancy, and I don't feel like investing in a fake ring so I'm just going to go ringless for a few months.

When I went on holiday last week it was so hot my hands swelled up horribly and I couldn't wear my rings, so I used them around my neck on a chain. I know it was only for a weekend - they now fit again - but I'm sure they'll stop fitting again soon, I might wear them that way again. I don't want to resize them and then have to change their size again after pregnancy, especially as I want more than one child

DHBH my wedding ring stopped fitting around 20 weeks in my last pregnancy I had to use oil to get it off! I didn't wear anything for the rest of my pregnancy and my ring fit again by my 6 week pp checkup. I worried some about looking pregnant and not married but I think it happens to alot of ladies

My wedding ring fits fine so far this pregnancy and I never had it resized so I think I was just retaining more water with my last pregnancy

I would just take it off and not worry about it, even if you got it resized or bought something temporary it may not fit by 30 weeks either. My fingers looked like sausages by 36 weeks with my daughter

I was thinking about putting them on a chain too, but I'm such a paranoid person, I worry about the chain breaking and loosing my rings.

For a "replacement" ring, when I say cheap, I mean cheap. Like a $10 costume jewelry type ring, something simple. Since I too don't want to make an investment on something I wear for a matter of months. I may even have something buried somewhere in a jewelry box.

Found a pretty sapphire and diamond ring my parents got me as a graduation gift years ago that easily fits. I'm just going to wear this for the rest of the pregnancy till my wedding ring fits again after birth. It may be silly, but I don't like the idea of not wearing anything... I will still miss my wedding/engagement ring, but its safely put away and now my finger is comfortable.

I wouldn't waste money getting your ring resized. A friend of mine though had some crazy swelling in her pregnancy, and within a couple of hours suddenly she couldn't get the rings off. She had to go to a jeweller to get them CUT off. Thnakfully being a jeweller he did it while being able to save the state of the ring, so it could be fixed at a later date. If you go to the hospital to do it they won't consider things like that, and your ring could be ruined

I was scared by that story, so I removed mine pretty early in my first pregnancy and bought a cheap silver band to wear instead. It cost around 5 ($7). You can also wear your rings on a necklace though. I preferred to keep mine safe at home and just wear the cheap one. My second pregnancy I wore the cheap one too. My fingers have never really swollen though; I just did it as a precaution.

That's what my friend warned me about. She had trouble getting them off when she went into labor, the hospital said they would have to cut them off, she was thankfully finally able to get it off so they didn't have to destroy her rings. I've been keeping an eye on mine, since like I said I already had them fit snugly. It was hurting this morning and I had to use cold water and lots of soap to get it off. Glad I didn't have to get them cut off! Also glad I had a larger ring laying around to wear temporarily, I would have done the same as you and bought a cheap $7 ring if I hadn't, since I worry about something so expensive hanging off a chain (I've broken plenty of necklace chains, so I'm not taking any chances!)
