How To Avoid A Very Costly Pregnancy Blunder

How To Avoid A Very Costly Pregnancy Blunder

May was such an exciting month for our little family. We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary.

And we made an extra special announcement featuring Morgan for our Baby Boy coming in November.

I'm Going To Be A Big Sister

However with every bit of good news comes some bad news. Luckily my bad news is not anything that is life changing or terrible. It is rather silly in fact now that I can look back at it in retrospect.

10 years ago Austin let me design my wedding ring. It was super special to me because I love symmetry and I always thought the engagement ring with a one band look was unbalanced. I decided to go against the norm and opted for two bands one on either side of my engagement ring. To describe my ring you would say it is two diamond eternity bands that sandwich a third eternity band with a center stone surrounded by a halo containing diamonds. I absolutely love love love my ring. It’s perfect. You might be asking yourself right about now why is Julia describing her wedding ring to us?

Well you see when I got pregnant with Morgan and every single night for 8 years prior to that I removed my ring every single night. It was annoying to sleep with it, mostly because I would either scratch myself or Austin in the middle of the night. That sucker can be sharp! But for some reason after giving birth once it fit again I put it back on and haven’t taken it off ever since. Therein lies the rub! I’m almost 5 months pregnant, two weeks ago I woke up from a tossy turney sleep to realize my ring finger was super swollen. I tried my go to method of cold water and soap to remove my ring but it wouldn’t budge.

I nonchalantly let Austin know that I think my ring was stuck. He became way more worried than I was. He started to Google ways to remove a ring from a swollen finger. In today’s post I am going to list all the ways that we tried to remove my ring before I finally had to call and make an appointment with our jeweler to have it cut off. My precious lovely ring.

Here is what we tried:

Why A JORD Watch Is the Perfect Gift For Mr. Adventure [GIVEAWAY]

This is a sponsored post. I sometimes receive products and/or services compliments of various companies. I however will only recommend products that I love and that I know my readers will love too. I was in no way required to write a positive review. The opinions shared below are completely my own.

JORD “We make our watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.”

my Mr. Adventure has done it all. It’s always been a challenge to find the perfect something for Austin. It’s even more of a challenge in today’s day and age. Austin orders himself what he wants, when he wants and gets it immediately.

That is why I was so excited when JORD selected me to share one of their watches with all of you. My hubby was also thrilled because he was immediately drawn in by the stunning and unique details of the Dover Olive and Acacia hand-crafted wood timepiece. It is truly a beautiful watch. Every detail is deliberate. Every detail is perfect.

The more I learn about JORD as a company the more impressed I become. Not only are their watches extremely modern and cool but they value sustainability in the woods that they select. On their website they feature details about each of their woods. For example, I can learn all about the source, grain, texture and sustainability of the two woods used in the Dover Olive and Acacia watch.

This partnership is seriously amazing because my friends at JORD are giving away a $100 gift code to one of my readers to use on the JORD site!
