I knew the day would come. But I thought I’d be seven, maybe eight months pregnant… For the last two weeks or so I’ve been taking my wedding ring off to sleep at night because I could tell my fingers were starting to swell and I thought the break over night would help. This morning, as I was getting ready I grabbed my rings to slip them on and they were not going past my knuckle. I tried and tried, and my knuckle turned red. My rings are now safely put away in my jewelry box and I am wearing a different ring that is a size bigger. I can’t believe at four months I am already this swollen. So long to my sparkles…
