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.
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:
