Still Wearing Rings?

At about this point in each of my pregnancies I had to take off my wedding ring. How about you? Are you still able to wear your rings or have you taken them off?

the cold weather is upon us here in minnesota, and my rings tend to be a bit loose all winter.  i have 10 weeks to go, and am still wearing my rings.  hope to continue the ability to do so throughout the remainder of the pregnancy!

My wife is still wearing hers and with our daughter she didn't take her ring off until right before she went to the hospital to be induced.  There's a good chance she'll do the same this time around.  That being said my wife weighed about 50 lbs. less when she got pregnant with our daughter than she did at our wedding and she weighed about 70 lbs. less when she got pregnant with our son than she did at our wedding.

With our daughter she gained about 30 lbs. so even at 9 months she was still about 20 lbs. less than she had been for our wedding.  And with this pregnancy she's actually weighs 23 lbs. less than she did when she was 7 months pregnant with our daughter back in 2009.  

I'm very proud of her.  She was much healthier when she got pregnant with our daughter than she was at our wedding and she's been even healthier with this 2nd pregnancy than with her 1st pregnancy.

good for her for her healthier lifestyle and good for you for recognizing and supporting her in it! i started this pregnancy at about 110, which is healthy for my height and build. i'm currently at about 126. if it's true about gaining a pound per week, i should be right within that goal of 25-35lb weight gain. it sounds like soooo much to put on, but i'm well on my way!

I'm at a 25 weight gain at 32 weeks. I'm still wearing my rings and don't plan to take them off unless absolutely necessary.

i had to take mine off this week. fingers not terribly swollen, but i don't want to take the chance of having my rings get stuck. i ordered an inexpensive stand-in fur the duration of the pregnancy so my ring finger won't have to be both swollen AND naked. ;)
