Ah, I love my wedding & engagement rings. Sadly I have kicked them to the curb already. Two whole months earlier then the last pregnancy. They were getting tight and oddly the skin was always itchy around them. I felt like if I went much longer they would have ended up being cut off so there ya go. I am not as swollen yet as I was last time overall or at least I do not feel like I am THAT swollen (hush to those of you who see me all the time and are thinking 'she's on crack - she looks like she had a massive allergic reaction!') I have noticed my socks and shoes are getting tighter but the ring is really the thing I have noticed the most so far.
During my first pregnancy Kevin bought me a little ring with my birth stone for our five year togetherness anniversary. It was lovely and HUGE just like me and so I wore that ring the last time I was pregnant on my ring finger. I had it resized when I resized after Matthew was born but I did not go too small because I wanted to be sure I had it still if we ever decided to have a 2nd baby and lo here we are.
I am wearing it again and thankfully it still slips all over the place and fits like a dream! Why does this matter, you might wonder? It does not, NOT really. I mean whatever... I hardly look at women's ring fingers any more to see if they are married or not or even what their rings look like. Something I did obsessively before & after I was 1st engaged & married! Really I love this ring but never wear it so it is getting its day in the sun while the other rings get a well deserved pregnancy break!
What did you do when your wedding rings stopped fitting if anything? Do you have an alternate ring? Or some other options?
DON'T FORGET: KEEP VOTING ON THE SEX OF THE BABY (there are only 4 days left!)
