My friend wears hers on a chain around her neck – she’s due in April – and I thought that was really sweet

I had to take my wedding ring off but we bought really cool stunt rings in Mexico, so I replaced it with that.  My ering was already too big, so it still fits.  We’ll see for how long!

I’m suddenly feeling kind of fat.  My rings still fit just fine!  No swollen fingers for me yet (at 28+5!).  Does that mean I wasn’t small to begin with??  What causes swollen fingers?  Am I doing something wrong?  My feet aren’t swollen yet either!

No, that’s good MS.  You get swollen because fluids move from cells and blood vessels into the tissues.  You don’t want that to happen…  Edema is a normal part of pregnancy but can also be a sign of hypertension or pre-eclampsia.  I’m keeping an eye on mine very closely.

Whew!  Thanks DG!  I feel like I’m having the most abnormal normal pregnancy in history!!  (I have all the wrong symptoms, and none of the typical ones!)

YAY – – I might be late but I see all you ladies post on so many threads, I had no clue you all were preggers, YAY – Congrats to each of you….Is this everyones 1st?  Do you know what you’re having? 

And the dreaded, do people really come up to you and touch your belly? That is one thing I will never understand…..

At least you got your rings off now! My aunt had to have her (ex)husband cut her rings off of her finger because she swelled so much that it was cutting off her circulation and she couldnt get them off. I don’t know if it was a sudden thing, or just her being reluctant to take them off.

My fingers swelled around my rings, so they stayed on the whole time! Not by choice though, I actually thought about getting them cut off!

I’m a little late here too apparently, b/c I didn’t know you were pregnant either Roddy! Congratulations! And to everyone else too, but I think I said congrats to everyone else too :o)

Now, on to your post! My SIL is pregnant with her second, and she was so sad that she had to take her rings off much earlier with her 2nd than she did with her first. She had a cheaper ring she found in a department store that is just a plain band, b/c she was getting pretty nasty looks from some strangers.
