Just had to go to a&e to get my wedding band cut off sad hands have puffed up dramatically in last couple of days to the pint I could close my fingers into a fist. Tried everything but hand was so swollen it had to come off.
Had a blub in the triage room-I know it's silly but I just feel like a massive bloated whale now with giant chipolatas for fingers and sponges for feet.
36 weeks but could murder a large gin!

I couldnt believe how much ive puffed up in a couple of days! I love my wedding band and could kick myself for not taking it off. Woke up this morning and my fingers were MASSIVE!
Ankle bones are non-existant but thankfully going to see the midwife in a couple of days so she can do all the regular checks.
