Part of being pregnant is growing. Not only does your body grow a whole new child, but much of your body will grow, too. While many women expect that their stomach will grow, it can come as a surprise that your fingers will also swell, grow, and change during the pregnancy process.\nFor this reason, many pregnant women choose to not wear their wedding rings during the latter portion of their pregnancy. Since rings are a part of our culture and represent deep commitments, this has never sat quite right with us. That’s why we think that a silicone ring is the best solution for your fingers during pregnancy.\n\nThey’re Comfortable\nLet’s face it. When you’re pregnant, comfort is key. Finding comfort is important, and it can get difficult as your body grows and changes. Silicone rings are a great solution for uncomfortable jewelry. They’ll move with your finger without cutting off circulation or sweating.\nThey Stretch\nAs your pregnancy nears its end, you'll see that your fingers (and probably your ankles) are getting more and more swollen. This is the time when most women have to remove their rings and wait for the birth to happen. A silicone ring will stretch with your growing finger. This means that you won’t feel uncomfortable and you won’t need to remove your rings from a place of safety.\nThey’ll Break\nBut, if your rings do get too tight, know that a silicone ring is easily removed. Not only are they able to be quickly and safely cut away in the case of an emergency, but they’re also built to give way and break when placed under extreme stress. During a time of your life when safety matters the most, this peace of mind is comforting.\nThey’re Affordable\nFinally, using a silicone ring during your pregnancy is a great solution because of our price point. QALO works hard to keep our silicone rings aggressively priced. That means that it won’t break the bank if you choose to buy a new silicone ring for each trimester, as your fingers change in size. It also means that you can choose a color specific ring (once you know the gender) without feeling wasteful!\n\nWe’re fairly certain that you’ll fall in love with QALO during your pregnancy. So why not add in an item from our family collection to help welcome baby? We offer customizable, super soft Sherpa blankets as well as silicone teething necklaces.
