Swollen Fingers How Can I Get My Ring Off

My fingers are so swollen they look like sausages! I can't get my ring off. Any suggestions on how I can reduce the swelling enough to remove my ring? I have tried holding my hand over my head to drain some of the fluid out- but no help and I tried soap to get it to slip off. It is stuck! And my hands are so swollen and stiff- especially in the morning, that I cannot hold my toothbrush or a pen! This is terrible! Any suggestions? PLEASE HELP!

Aww, I'm sorry! Have you tried holding your hand under cold water and then putting lotion on right after? My ring got much looser when I was cold so maybe try that? Hope you're able to figure something soon! :) The joys of pregnancy!

I've heard it also helps if you get someone else to pull it off for you. Hand them your hand. Relax as much as possible (I find that keeping my eyes closed works well so I don't see when they start to pull) and let them pull.

You may need it cut off. I knew the swelling was coming, so i took mine off a few weeks ago. Im 23 weeks. Keep trying at different times of the day.

Olive oil, then running it under cold water worked for me one time.

I got it off! Woohoo! I held my hand up for over an hour last night while watching tv in ice cold air conditioning. The swelling went down some and withlots of lotion and manuevering, I finally got it off! Thanks for your suggestions!
