Wedding ring

im 8 months pregnant my fingers are swollen and had to take my wedding ring off it got stuck so i didnt want to put it back on. I told my husband it hurts my finger and i didnt want to leave it on for the fear of having to get it cut off. My husband is very upset by this and said hes not going to wear his. I put it on necklace and am wearing it around my neck but he has said something about itevery five minutes since iv taken it off. how can i get him to be more understanding?

  • Wow. Wearing it around your neck is a great solution. Ask him if he'll wear his around his neck, too, if he wants to take it off. If it won't fit you it won't fit, that's the way it is. Ask him if he'll go with you and pick out an inexpensive ring that you can wear temporarily on your wedding ring finger, you'll get it in a larger size so it will fit you now, and later on you can wear it around your neck as a memory of your pregnancy, and you have it for future pregnancies, too.

  • He is being an immature a**. It happens with pregnant women and I think you wearing on a necklace is great.

  • Gotta agree with jorjiegirl. He's the one with the problem, not you. I'm sorry DH is being so insensitive. Good luck,Hon.

  • Explain to him that if he insists that you wear your rings with that much swelling you will probably end up with NO FINGER or HAND to wear the ring on. When I was pregnant my husband and I went together and bought a plain gold band to wear --- solved the problem. To a lot of people the ring is very important but what's more important the ring with no finger or the finger to wear the ring.

  • I like Bmat's suggestion. Get a bigger cheap ring to wear while you are swollen. Explain to him that it's only 3 more weeks; the baby will be born, and you can wear the original again.

  • He should be understanding and realize that due to pregnancy weight and swelling you are not able to wear your rings at this moment in time. It will not last forever, you will be able to wear them again. He has no reason to be an immature childish jerk who feels he has to 'do back' to you and not wear his ring. I think the necklace idea is a good compromise! If he does not like it -- too bad! Maybe you should get him a ring 2 sizes too small, cram it on his finger and tell him he HAS to wear it 24/7 and cannot ever take it off. Maybe then he will see what it is like and he will shut up and stop being a jerk about it!

  • What about getting a temporary wedding ring that is a size or so bigger?
