I never had this problem with my left hand ring finger. But I wore a promise ring my mother gave me there for a long time before I got my engagement ring. But I do sometimes have to get use to a ring my husband bought me for my right hand when I decide to wear it. But I think you should just give it some time & you will get use to it. πŸ™‚

CONGRATULATIONS btw & happy planning! 

Any ring porn?

Congratulations!! Show us the ring! πŸ˜€

I had the same problem adjusting to wearing a ring after the proposal, and I’d walk around with my hands in a fist cuz I was so scared of losing it.  But after a while, I totally got used to it and in fact, when I DON’T wear it now (when i’m at work), it feels weird and I miss it!  I’d touch the spot where the ring is supposed to be thinking it’s there and then remembered I didn’t wear it!

@CrispyRN: Haha, I did the fist thing too!

I never wore rings before so yeah, it was a bit weird. I got used to it though, and now not wearing it feels weird.

I had a problem adjusting. The main problem was in summer when my fingers would swell from the humidity and it was really uncomfortable. Then I didn’t like wearing my ring to bed because I would poke myself in the eye LOL! I was also scared my stone would fall out in my sleep and I’d lose it forever. But I am finally used to it and wear it all the time practically. You’ll get used to it πŸ™‚

@jewel_go:  I’m with you!  I never wear rings so it’s definitely different adjusting to wearing an engagement ring.  I always fiddle with it because it moves around even though it’s my normal ring size.  I heard it’s normal for women to have their fingers change depending on the weather.  But don’t worry, you’ll get used to it πŸ™‚

I sure did…I was also obsessed with having it sized. I think I had it sized lie 5 times..and I swear sometimes they would tell me they would size it and it felt exactly the same. I felt like they thought I was some nut and they were just trying to patronize me. lol. I finally got it to a size I was comfortable with and wasn’t worried about it falling off anymore. I did fidget and also stare at it constantly…I also had this thing about finding flaws in it…if I saw a scratch in the metal or anything my heart would race. It’s like getting a new car, you towel it down when it rains, you search it for dings…until you realize it’s just a car. =)

I used to wear a light thin promise ring on my left ring finger. When I got my engagement ring it took me a while to get used to the weight of the ring and the new rock. I’d never realized how heavy platinum is. I think after a month I’ve gotten used to it and now when I don’t wear it my finger feels naked.

I’ve had my ring for 10 months and I still screw with it! You do get used to it, but in my case, it was more a case of my getting used to fiddling with it. πŸ™‚
