A warning for pregnant women

Besides all of the health warnings that pregnant women have to face, there is also something that only other formerly pregnant women will tell you........to remove that wedding ring. You see, that fashionable Wedding Jewelry on your fingers can also be a health hazard.

As your pregnancy progresses, you gain weight all over your body, not just in the areas around the growing baby. Your hands and feet are subject to swelling. Rings if not removed during the first months of pregnancy will become harder and harder to remove. During the last month of the pregnancy the ring may cause discomfort and block blood circulation to the finger it is on. It is not uncommon for wedding rings to be cut off of pregnant women during the last trimester of their pregnancy.

So if you love your ring and don't want it cut from your finger then remove it while you still can.
