In theory I could still be wearing them but my fingers are kind of puffy now and I've heard horror stories of women having to have them cut off at the ER because they were restricting circulation. I took them off about a week ago and it was way harder than I thought it would be--those things were really on there.

Anyone else?

I'm still wearing mine, but I do take them off at night before bed

I don't wear mine around the house and I often forget to put them on when I go out, but mine still fit. They get a little tight when it's hot, though.

Took mine off months ago. They weren't *that* tight but a friend of hers had her rings get stuck and the idea of that freaks me out.

I look really young, which actually can be annoying- depending on context and what I'm wearing people often think I'm in high school. So, since I took my rings off, sometimes when I'm out and about I wonder if people think I'm a pregnant teen. (Not that it would matter if I were, it's just so far from the truth it's funny to me.)

I wear mine when I remember to put them on. They still fit fine but I take them off to sleep (otherwise I scratch my daughter) and I forget to put them back on. THey will definetly be taken off when I go to have the baby since you aren't allowed to wear jewerly in the hospital Im delievering at.

I am thrilled that mine still fit. Last time they didn't at the end... and my fingers never ended up getting back to the same size I guess because I had to have my rings resized! That sucked!

Mine still fits just fine. It is actually a bit loose on some days. With DD2, I had to take them off a week before she was born because it was getting to the point of no return on them. I am so glad I did, too. I had a c-section, and I swelled up sooooo much afterward. It was ridiculous. We are talking swelling where my ankles jiggled when I walked. I left the hospital barefoot because I could not get my flip flops on my feet. Anway, I know my rings would have had to be cut off if I had left them on. I am thinking I will take them off before I have my c/s this time regardless of whether I have swelling or not. I just don't want to risk it considering last time.

Mine actually do still fit fine but I put them on a chain around my neck awhile back. I get very mildly swollen occassionally but I would hate to have sudden swelling & find them stuck. And yesterday morning I could barely close my hand for the swelling so I'm glad I wasn't wearing them. It was very strange though 'cause it was only the left hand & it went away pretty quickly after I woke up - I think I must have slept with my arm funny.

Surviving sleep deprivation one day at a time with dd (Oct '11) & ds (Oct '08).

I wear mine 24/7. It is a good salt/water intake indicator to me! If my ring gets tight a bit, I drink more and avoid salty stuff for a while. Works perfectly.

My swelling has reached a point that I don't think I SHOULD wear them anymore. Most evenings with cold water and soap I am able to get them off, but it's a stretch. It's just been my constant companion for more than 10 years (well, 11 in December) that I don't really WANT to take them off for 2 more months or so.

Mine won't come off (have been stuck for months now!) but they're not restricting my circulation or anything so I just wear them 24/7.

I haven't been wearing my wedding ring for the last 3-4 months. It started getting tight and uncomfortable and I took it off.
