I had to take my rings off when I was 16 weeks pregnant and my DD is 7 weeks and I’m still not able to put them back on. I love my gorgeous rings and hate not being able to wear them, especially when I’m out with DD. I did gain 55lbs and still have 20lbs to lose.
Should I get them resized? How long does it take for the swelling to go down or does it ever?
Also, we will probably start trying for another child at the after summer 2013, so I feel like by the time I get my rings back on they will have to come off again.

I miss my rings too (and don’t really know when the swelling goes down, though I assume not long after pregnancy based on the cause of the swelling). I asked DH for a substitute ring for christmas. Nothing expensive, but something simple that I can wear for the next few months and again with any future pregnancies. That way it will be something I can look at fondly (since it came from DH).

@iRun2004- I said the same thing to DH, not for christmas just sometime in the near future. I just think if we did end up with 4 kids then for the next 8 yrs or so I couldn’t wear my rings. And they are way too expensive to sit in my jewlery box.
