"How the HELL did her wedding ring get OFF her in the first place..."
Maybe she was too swollen to wear them... she was eight months pregnant...
I know, but in most people with normal pregnancies, many of those changes like the fluid retention sort of happen gradually, and sneak up on people. This was Laci's first pregnancy. I'm not so sure that she was knowledgeable enough to think, say, at the 4-month stage, "Hmmm. Better take off my rings right now, or they'll get stuck on my fingers!"
Her friends couldn't have told her every little detail about pregnancy. And one only learns some of the little details of being pregnant through actually experiencing it. I think the fluid retention would have snuck up on her, and that maybe she'd have suddenly found her fingers too swollen to get the rings off.
And once one is in that fluid retention stage, it's VERY hard to get the rings off.
