Hasta La Vista

The time I’ve been dreading has finally come… to say goodbye to my weddings rings. Although I have no significant swelling (thank goodness!) my rings have just become a little too uncomfortable and I’m afraid I won’t be able to get them off when needed. The last thing I’d want to have to do is cut! them! off! 

My engagement ring actually still fits, although not perfectly. But my wedding ring, being a half a size smaller… notsomuch. Just to be on the safe side, I haven’t been wearing my engagement ring, except for right now since I’m about to go out for a doctor’s appointment. We have our maternity shots this weekend and hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze on wear my wedding band. If not, the engagement ring will have to stand alone.

I wonder when I’ll be able to put them back on?

In other news, we’re off to my 36-weeks check-up! Can you believe it? (I can’t!) I’m going to have my first cervix exam to see if there’s any progress in the labor department. I doubt it, but one can always hope! I’ll be sure to post about it tomorrow, along with a fun little poll. Stay tuned.

Hope y’all are having a wonderful day! And thank you all for your well wishes. My cold is almost all the way gone–I’m definitely feeling better than I was, although not quite myself. But then again, who could feel like their self at 36 weeks?!

  1. I took my rings off right after I was officially in labor, just in case. I was so happy to put them back on right after!

    I hope your appointment goes well and you give us an update soon! 🙂

    So happy you're feeling better!

  2. Ah, that sucks about the rings, but I guess it is better than having to get them chopped off right?!
    36 weeks… eeeeek! So close!
    (And so glad you are feeling better!)

  3. Yay! 🙂 Lucky you, they wouldn't even do an exam on me until next week. I was so bummed, lol. I'm so anxious! I'm sure you are too! Sorry your rings aren't fitting. I haven't had that problem, but my toes and feet keep swelling though. Let us know 🙂

  4. Aww, bummer that you have to take them off 🙁 You could always wear them on a necklace! Can't wait to see those materity photos!! Have a great week Katie 🙂
