I would resize it to the larger size and either do the ball thing or a more temporary, ring re-sizer:

You could take it off on the puffy, pregnant, water retaining days. 😉

I would resize to the size you are now. If you lose all the weight you want to, you can always do the already stated alternatives or get it resized again. But, I hate to sound pessimistic, if you don’t lose all the weight, your ring will still be too small. So go with your size now and adjust according if/when you lose all the weight.

I would wait a few months before doing anything.

First, I would want to resize the ring as few times as possible. Not only for the aggravation but also because it increases the chances for things to go wrong. In the post of D’Orsay’s Rosy linked to, her jeweler said that if you resize more than twice you can risk damaging the metal’s integrity.

Second, it’s wintertime and your fingers will be smaller now than in summer. Come summer it will definitely be too small…but for now, you have a grace period where you can try to lose some weight. When it starts getting hot out where you are, I would get it resized to whatever size you are at that time.

You could always resize now so your ring is more comfortable and try a horseshoe sizer when it gets too loose. This, sizing beads or a sizing bar may be options worth exploring. They are cheaper, easy to undo and there is less chance of damaging your ring. Here is a link with a picture and someone’s experience with a horsehsoe sizer. If you want I can post links for sizing beads and sizing bars as well. http://www.pricescope.com/idealbb/view.asp?topicID=38617
