So I'm only now realizing that I should have taken my wedding rings off weeks ago - my fingers are swollen just enough that I can't get the rings off. So far I've tried greasing my finger with butter but no go. Any other suggestions??
DDCC. In past pregnancies I have wrapped my finger with thread all the way to the ring to sort of "bind" the swelling. Here is a picture tutorial I found that explains it better than I can. http://www.ehow.com/how_5578423_remove-stuck-finger-very-easy.html
Are you trying to get it off b/c it's become uncomfortable/painful? I took mine off a while back...maybe 5 weeks ago? b/c it had been highly recommended that I do it sooner than later. I was able to pry it off but it left an imprint on my finger for at least a couple days!
Good luck with all the suggestions!!
Thanks for all your feedback! Yes, I am trying to get them off because they are too tight at this point - not uncomfortable but I am getting worried that they will only get tighter as my swelling increases in these last weeks of pregnancy. I should have done it a long time ago...going to try the ice cube method in the morning!
