I've heard of people having to get theirs resized after pregnancy. You might have to do that. My fingers only swelled the last week of my pregnancy and I was a week overdue. They went back to normal about a week later.

When I went for my 6 week checkup after I had my son I weighed about 20 pounds less then when I got pregnant with him. (That's only because I only gained 5 pounds while I was pregnant.) Even though I weighed a lot less I still had to get my wedding ring resized so that I could wear it.

I haven't been able to wear my ring for a few months now, it just won't fit!:xIt stops at my knuckle too, and if I do force it past, my whole finger starts to turn purple and I have to use soap to get the damn thing off!:shock: So I gave up!:cry:

i still haven't been able to size my ring back to its normal size. I had to get mine from a size 5 to a size 9 when I was pregnant & my fingers still haven't gone down. Doctor told me with certain birth controls you wont lose that extra water in your body... Damnit for not wanting to get pregnant again or things would fully be back to normal.:?

Oh well then we're all a bunch of knobbly knuckles :P I wonder if knuckles get bigger with each baby or if it's just the first one? Like I said (or meant to), I only read about FEET going up a size during pregnancy and never quite going back to their old size again... Any of you had permanently enlarged feet then? I only wear really comfortable running shoes normally so I wouldn'T really know...

I never heard about feet getting bigger.. My shoes were the only thing that still fit.. LOL.. Today I went and got my rings resized.. :cry: oh well at least i will get to wear them again. I went from a size 8 to a size 10!! :shock: And like everyone else is saying they dont look that big! I also went clothing shopping today... yeah I'm not thrilled about going up a pant size and not finding any tops that match my personality.... I shouldnt have to dress like my mother becuase I am a mom now. LOL.
