I haven't taken my wedding ring(s) off since I was pregnant with Kohen. I waited WAY too late this pregnancy to take them off. It finally got to the point where they were hurting me. When I decided to try and take them off, they wouldn't budge. I tried lotion, baby oil, windex, dental floss, soaking my hand in cold water, twisting, pulling...EVERYTHING. Nothing worked. Nothing even worked a little bit. I started to panic. This went on for 3 days. By the third day of not being able to get it off, I started to really panic and I was getting very claustrophobic. I went to Jason's office during his lunch hour and said "just get it off". I don't care how. Just get them OFF! We ended up going to a local jewelry store (Fletcher Smith's Jewelers) and I got them CUT OFF.
My poor rings!
I have to say that I DO NOT regret having them cut off. I'm positive that was the ONLY solution. I am sad that it messed up the engraving on the inside of the band though. I'm sure I will always be able to see where my ring was cut. Not sure how well platinum goes back together!? BUT, I do know that it will add character to my ring and I'll always be able to show my little girl where her momma had to cut off my wedding rings when I was pregnant with her :)
