Help! My wedding ring doesn't fit. What should I do?

I don't want to remove my wedding ring but it's so tight right now I'm worried it'll cut off my circulation. Did you experience this? If so, what did you do? It's important to me that I still recognize my marriage and that people know I'm married.

  • I couldn't wear my wedding ring anymore at almost 8 months. I got a nice long necklace and put the ring on it!

  • Agree with crazypink.

    You don't want to lose a finger.

  • I just dont wear it on the days that my fingers swell too much. I don't feel like i have to prove that i'm married to anyone, so it doesn't bother me too bad. I know a lot of people put them on chains around their necks, but i'm not much of a necklace wearer, and i'd be afraid of losing it that way.

  • You can buy an inexpensive wedding band in a larger size.

  • Buy a chain for it and hang it around your neck.

  • I took mine off the last month of pregnancy and wore a bigger ring on the same finger. I felt "naked" with nothing there, so at least I had something to show I was married.

  • It is very dangerous to wear it if it is too small. I say just take it off...wear it on a necklace if you want to. Just dont wear it on your finger if its too small...bad idea

  • i have mine on a chain around my neck. I think it bothers DH that I don't wear it, but if it doesn't fit anymore it doesn't fit!

  • I bought a plain gold band and after she was born I wore it on my thumb to remember which side I last breastfed on!
