You might look at Van Craeynest wedding bands. They have some lovely, delicate die cast rings. (I'm horribly biased because I have one.) Here's their website. My wedding band is the second one from the bottom in the stack of "bangle rings" pictured on the front page of "Collections". It's about 2mm ...

A friend of mine just had almost exactly the same situation.

She delivered a perfect, healthy baby g...

I''m sorry. That sounds like a super stressful situation. I hope you get a seasonal job - it sounds like a little money + getting out of the house = win. Maybe it''ll give you momentum going into the new year.

Good luck!

I wish I could get one, because I commute on public transit, work in a hospital, and my husband is immunocompromised. But our hospital has received a whopping 175 doses, which they have (rightly) triaged for pregnant staff.

Sigh...

I would send the nice email you wrote.

I have no vision troubles, but I can''t follow the magnet one without effort. (Ok, that might have to do with drinking wine with dinner, but still.)

I like the scratch off one best, and I''ve never received anything like it, so it would get my vote.
