Go with the larger ring, it is easy to size down later, you can also get a piece that fits in the ring and adjusts it to fit. I can’t think of the name right now.

Have you discussed whether or not the ring can be resized with your jeweler? If the ring can be resized, I’d getting the size she can wear now knowing that it can be adjusted to fit her pre-pregnancy size when she’s ready.

Make sure the ring can be sized. In the mean time as her ring size fluctuates a jeweler should be able to put a spaceR in.

If the shank of the ring is pave, resizing could be a problem. A plain metal shank is easy to resize. Realize also that the addition of a wedding band may make an engagement ring feel more snug. I’d go with a 5.

Go with the bigger size. Easier to size down than up. And regardless of whether she loses all the weight sometimes pregnancy permanently changes the size of your fingers.

franticfiance:  Good choice 😉 5 is the way to go.  My hands swell and go down a TON and I’m not even expecting.  I wouldn’t go as high as 5.25 because personally, I never take my e ring off so as long as its not giving me muffin finger, I’m okay with having to work at it to get it off if I need to.  When my hands get cold the ring slips off very easily so if she’s anything like me, going the middle ground will be best course of action and luckily it can be resized 🙂

When I was heavily pregnant i couldn’t get my rings past my knuckle but by a week or so later they were fitting as normal again. A lot of weight gain on fingers in pregnancy is just water retention/swelling and so you don’t want to go too big a size as she’ll likely be back to her normal ring size quite quickly.
