It was a sad day when I had to take off my engagement and wedding rings, but it was for good reason. We’re having a baby, and in a matter of days! But I had to take them off pretty early in pregnancy because of swelling in my hands. Many women choose to do that. If you don’t and your hands swell up too much, you have to get the rings sawed-off so it doesn’t cut circulation off during pregnancy! No way I was going to let that happen.
It made me wonder how women decide whether or not to put their rings back on. I’ve noticed that some women keep only their wedding ring on, while others will have both, while some may choose not to put them back on at all. I plan on putting both as soon as my hands allow for it. It makes me sad to think that I wouldn’t put my engagement and wedding rings back on. Why wouldn’t you put both rings back on?
How long do you wear your rings for? For what reason? Did you have to make a decision to take your rings off?
