What did you do to prepare for The Big Day? How did you disguise your pump? Or, if like me you do MDI, did you carry a syringe and bottle of insulin down the aisle? Probably not. How about the reception? Did anyone get low? (I did, but that was during my bachelorette party...a story for another day). And the honeymoon...was diabetes an unwanted 3rd wheel or did it all go smoothly?

Hi Amy! I am on the pump and I clipped it to my bra for the wedding and used a pretty clutch purse to carry my testing supplies and glucose tabs with me. My mom held onto it during the ceremony and I kept it with me during our reception. I did not get low or high (by the grace of God!!!) I was worried about both but I paid close attention to my Dexcom CGM to make sure neither happened.
But my honeymoon that was a whole other story!!! We were in Hawaii and I was eating foods that I was not familar with the carb counts and off my pump while we were in the water for hours on end, so I had lots of highs! At our luau right after we finished eating and the lights were dimming for the show I turned in my chair to watch and my infusion set was pulled out as it rubbed on the arm of the chair. So off to the restroom I went to do an infusion change while all the ladies walking in and out were staring at me as if I was doing drugs in there! I was just thankful I had brought an extra one with me! But I was ssoooo frustrated to miss out on part of the show because of that!
