now my rings stuck - HELP

wavezncurlzwavezncurlz Registered Users Posts: 1,814
I thought I'd missed the bullet. I hadn't experienced swelling until now. I was extremely swollen last time at around 7-8 months. So when I passed this time period, I thought I was safe.

Problem is I didn't take my rings off and today they are stuck. Anything I can do to get them off? Anything to reduce the swelling enough to slip them off?

TIA

    Stick your hand into some cold water (or go outside if it's cold where you are). Your fingers should shrink a bit from the cold.

    I'm wondering if I should take my ring off soon. I take it off every day when I shower, and I had a bit of trouble getting it off this morning. Now, it's coming off just fine, but I'm wondering if I shouldn't risk it getting stuck. I don't have any noticeable swelling anywhere, but my shoes and ring have been feeling a little more snug than normal.

    As soon as I noticed my ring getting a little tight, we went to the flea market and got a $20 temporary wedding band. This was waaaayyyy back around 22 or 25 weeks or so.

    Me too - I had them on in the hospital the whole time. But my feet were swollen.

    Wavez, try dipping your finger in oil, butter, warm soapy water or vaseline.

    My hands never swelled up and I was able to wear my rings all along - my feet were an entirely different story.

    Wavez - I'd keep trying throughout the day. I definitely notice that at some times of the day my rings are looser that others. If its chilly outside, you might find that after you are out for a walk your rings will come off easier.

    If you raise your hands above your heart, the swelling should go down a bit - it might be enough to get your rings off.

    I wore my rings on a necklace starting somewhere in the 5th month, I think. I couldn't put them back on until long after the 3rd baby was born.

    Have you tried rinsing your hands in cold water and using soap to help it slide off? If you're able to sleep in it, try taking it off a little bit after you've woken up, or in the shower.
    I hope you get it off soon.
