For those that still are able to wear rings, does your dr require you to take them off before/during delivery? I have a thing with my insurance called "Life With Baby" and they were telling me all drs and hospitals now a days require you to take your jewelry especially your rings off during delivery....mainly due to swelling. My fingers only swell when I get really hot other than that I haven't had many issues with swelling.
I couldn't wear mine during my pg with Madison but was able to with Hailey and still have them on now. I do have to take mine off during delivery though since I get c-sections. I've never heard of an insurance company requiring you to take them off though.
When I was in labor with DD, the nurse asked me if I could take out my nose ring (which I couldn't anyway) because it was metal and it would need to be removed in the event of a c-section. She said if I couldn't remove it, they could cut it off but I didn't end up needing a section so it was no biggie. This time, I plan on wearing the necklace SO got me for vday and if a section becomes necessary, I'll just take it off and have him hold it until I can put it back on.
