So… Tonight i was taking a bath, i took off my rings and placed them beside my ipad which was upright playing a video. Well 1/2 way through my bath the ipad fell over and sent my rings flying. I didnt think much of it. -stupid- and got out of the bath. Baby started fussing so i left to tend to his needs. Just rememebering an hour ago about my fallen rings.
Me and DH have been searching for 1/2 an hour. tore appart the bathroom and cannot find my engagement ring! My wedding band turned up.
I have a sinking feeling it went down the bathroom vent in the floor. We even pulled apart the sink thinking maybe it fell down there and got trapped in the plumbing no such luck.
So sad right now. 🙁
Not sure what else to do but hope it magically turns up but i dont know how that could happen since we litterally looked high and low for it & our bathroom isn’t that big.
Here’s a photo of my rings. I mean… i guess if i HAD to choose one to loose i would have chosen my Engagement Ring and kept my wedding band since it means more to me.

@MrsHoneyC: oh no!! I am so sorry! Did you try vacuuming with a nylon hose over the end so things stick, but don’t go into the vacuum? I know it sounds weird but I have found many earrings this way!

Thanks guys… i am at a loss as to what to think right now? I’m seriously super confused as to where it went. DH seemed pretty upset that it went missing.
@oliviajuice: haha ive totally used this trick before its awesome on carpet!

You didn’t lose it! It is definitely in your house/bathroom… Did you take your heat vent cover off and look? It’s not like the end disappears into oblivion!

@MrsHoneyC: could it have been stuck to your clothes and travelled with you to baby’s room?

There may be a lip of sorts under your vanity that would permit items to fall into an area that is under the vanity but not visible unless you are eye level with it on the floor. You should check that.
Also, whatever you do, do not take out the trash until you have gone through your bathroom wastebasket to ensure that it is not in there.
I am SO sorry. This is why I hate taking my rings off even for a second to apply hand lotion. I really hope you find your beautiful ring!

@Makemeamrs: i did take off the vent cover and look with a flashlight to see if i could spot it didn’t see anything.
i had the same train of thought! looked through me and babys clothes, looked along the hallway & bedroom. No such luck?
Good call about the trash! Totally didn’t think of that one, its hidden behind the toilet so i would be uber suprised if it bounced backwards and went into there but stranger things have happened! Thanks i will look in there next.

@MrsHoneyC: I have no great suggestions, I just hope you find it – it’s lovely!

@MrsHoneyC: I just had another thought — check the folds and hem of your shower curtain, if you have one. Depending on how it is made, perhaps your ring could have fallen into the folds.
Also, be sure to check the inside of your tissue box and look around and behind any bottles you may have near or around your tub.
If you have throw/scatter rugs, look under those, and check your towels and wash cloth prior to putting them in the laundry basket or washer.
Do you have a dog who may have scooped it up in his or her mouth while you were tending to the baby?
I’m just trying to think of anything and everything.

@Brielle: update spent time going through the trash…. Pleasant being that there was a baby diaper in there my husband must have forgot about ewwww! Lol. No such luck. i took the flashlight and went along all the baseboards, bathroom, hallway, bedroom. Nada. Good idea about the shower curtain I had a look but ours is all sewn shut. No dog, three fluffy cats! It’s a possibility they could have played with it, pawed it someplace.
Im just so confused . Honestly havent the slightest idea where it could have gone to since there was no clutter in the bathroo. To speak of except my clothing & a baby onesie. (Checked the feet of his sleeper thinking maybe it was hiding in there.)
might have have to have another comb over in the morning when I am fresh eyed. Thanks for all the sujestions though!! you rock xo

So sorry to hear this! What a gorgeous set. It’s got to be SOMEWHERE in the house. I’m staying hopeful that it will make its way back onto your finger soon!

Was the toilet seat up? Maybe it went in there.
