You would think since this is my fourth pregnancy that I would of remembered to take my engagement ring and wedding band off before I got to puffy.... well no!
For over a week, I tried everything to get my rings off. First thing in the morning, cooling my hand in very cold water, lots of lotion,grease,oil and was going to try binding down my finger with a silk ribbon (kind of like a corset KWIM?) but I fiddled with my finger so much that it got inflamed and my rings wouldn't budge! (this happened last friday)
I stopped by the fire station (a minute away from my house) but they were worried of hurting me while cutting it off, so I went to the jewellers.
It's a weird thing to be sitting in the middle of a jewelry store, surrounded by couples picking out their engagement rings, while getting mine cut off my puffy pregnant finger!
I wanted to cry, but I reasoned myself to not be such a baby infront of all these happy (un-pufffy) couples, so I cried once I was out of the store with my deformed rings in a little plastic baggie.
Well, at least I can laugh about it now...a week later!
Hope nobody else has to get their rings cut off!
