It could be the heat thats making them swell. I had to take off rings around 30 weeks. I would mention it at your next appointment or if you swell up more ie your ankles etc i would maybe ring your gp to see what they have to say better to be on the safe side.

I have this all the time, it started about 3 weeks ago and I think now I know what people with arthritis must feel like, its very sore and at night feels worse! I have left off my rings for comfort, said it to both my doctor & midwife and they both said its normal, I am having twins and in Spain so probably more exagerated than normal, hopefully will ease off when the weather gets cooler!
