I put my rings back on at 8 or 9 days postpartum.

It took about a month and a half for me.  But I also gave birth in the middle of the summer in Florida so maybe that had something to do with it.

I was 6 weeks postpartum before I could jam them on after I had greased up my finger! Now at just about 3 months postpartum they fit normally again. Oh, they stopped fitting at about 20 weeks. So you are a star making it to 34 weeks!

I could wear my wedding band at about 1 month PP, but it was still tight. I couldn’t wear both rings until 3 months. (My e-ring is a quarter size smaller.) During pregnancy I wore my wedding band up until 28 weeks or so.

@Cory_loves_this_girl:  I got freaked out that I was going to wake up one morning and my fingers would be so swollen that I would have to get them chopped off, so I probably took them off a little early out of fear. No fear on the stuffing them back on end, though! It does feel like they’ll never fit again postpartum because it feels like your bones are too big for a bit or something, but everyone I know eventually got them back on!
