Sausage Fingers

Here is my wedding ring. I really miss it. As you can see it cuts off my circulation. When I put it on to take this picture I almost didn't get it off. I started to swell a bit over a week ago and I hadn't put it on since before then. It's obvious there is no hope for my beautiful ring until baby comes out and some weight comes off.
Can you see the pinching?

My solution?
Buy a fake ring. And while I'm at it, mine as well make it ridiculously huge. I've gotten a lot of stares and a few people have asked me if it's real. I almost want to tell them, "Actually, my husband felt so bad that my original wedding ring wont fit anymore, he dropped 50 grand on a new one for me! So that I don't feel too fat! Isn't that wonderful!" I think some people would believe it. Instead I tell them, "Haha, no, 20 bucks at Dillards. The other doesn't fit."

Behold


Funny thing about this is that it falls off my finger quite regularly. I'm hoping I don't grow into it. It's either 3 quarters of a size bigger or a size and a quarter bigger than my original. Not even sure what size my wedding ring is.

Don't worry too much about it. Mine fit the day I came home from the hospital. Apparently it was water weight in my fingers. (who knew that was even possible??)

It is pretty! I can see why people may think it was real, it is still tasteful, I was hoping it would look like you got it out of a gumball prize machine!LOL!

Just make sure you put your real one in a very safe place... I lost mine when I was pregnant and moving into our new apartment. I am still so sad about it! Chad said someday he'll get me a new one to replace it.

That is awesome. I would totally tell people it was real just to see their reaction. Let me know if you do I am curious.

My fingers are fat, but that's just because I'm fat.... Not beacuse I'm pregnant. FML
