  • At about 3 months, and could not put them back on my stubs until she was about 2 months old. I had toxemia so bad I looked like the Pillsbury dough boy. But oh so worth it and that was 17 tears ago :)

  • I never have had to remove mine. When I got engaged to my man, I was pregnant with my youngest. Since having her, I notice that the ring keeps slipping a little but thankfully not right off.

  • I forget when, but I took them off and wore them on a sturdy chain on my neck. Once they were off I didn't put them back on b/c I didn't want to have to have them cut off!!

  • My fingers always swell at nite, but during my pregnancy, I was aable to at least wear my wedding ring until my 8th month. It killed me to take it off, but it's better than having it cut off! :p You could always wear them on a chain. :) GL!

  • i took mine off about a a month and a half then i put them back on and they got stuck so i ended up taking them off and leaving them off about 3 weeks before i had my son everyone is different too just with swelling i kept mine in a ring box in my suit case (wishful thinking) i was able to put them back on the day i left the hospital it was snug tho but kept in mind every woman is different

  • Never had to take them off with my first. This one my fingers swell at night so I take my rings off before bed, but I have no problem wearing them during the day.
