I took my ring off when it started to get tight in my first pregnancy and wore it on a chain around my neck instead so I was still "wearing" it. I never had to take it off in my second preg--I never swelled enough to need to. I recently read something about how nettle tea reduces swelling, and I was drinking a red raspberry/nettle blend daily in my 2nd pregnancy, and I wonder if that may have had something to do with it.
Just barely fitting I'm going to have to wear them on my chain soon instead.

And actually, my fingers never went back to their original size after DS. So I haven't worn my rings in over 3 years. I never did the chain around the neck thing, because by that point I had a new baby who was grabby of course, and didn't want him to break the chain (or be scratched by my rings when I was cuddling him).
I will have my rings resized, but figured I would wait until I was done having kids, in case my fingers changed sizes again. So I am getting closer to being able to wear them again some day!
