Stopped wearing my rings in the third trimester due to swelling. 4months postpartum, I successfully put my wedding ring on but it got stuck. Had to have it cut off at the hospital! My finger started turning purple and felt all tingly, the more I or the hospital tried to get it off, the more swollen it got. So if you think it's getting tight and your worried you might not be able to get it off soon, play it safe and take it off.

I took mine off at 35 weeks. My DD is now 16 months and I gave up on the idea that they would ever fit again and got them resized lol

Mine had to get cut off at 36 weeks. I put it on one day & checked that it would come off and it did, so I left it on. Only a day later it wouldn't budge, I left it a few days to see if my swelling would subside but 4 days later it was well & truly stuck! Take them off at the first sign of them getting stuck! Lol. Mine have been repaired and you can't tell it was ever done but I was still devastated!

We bought a wedding ring engagement ring set when I was 6 weeks pregnant. By the time I was 6 months (when it was given to me) it didn't fit and my wedding ring didn't even fit on my wedding day. I need to get them resized.

Mine fit right up until birth but then AFTER birth I struggled to get them off due to breastfeeding. My fingers swelled up afterwards so totally took me by surprise.

My engagement ring fit up to about 6mths then I started getting puffy. I wore it on a chain until a week after DD was born when it fit again. I was so excited about having normal hands again!

I had late term pre-eclampsia so definitely not. But then, my ugg boots didn't fit either, and I was much more upset about that!

Hell no. I think my second pregnancy they may have fit all the way or close to it, but all the rest I became a heffalump and it's a very well know fact that heffalumps cannot wear their wedding rings.
I can get them on most days now...but still need soap and water to get them back off

Nope. No excuse other than I got fat! Would like to blame it on some ailment but the truth is I ate for 2

Yes. My rings fitted the entire pregnancy.
