what to do with your Dexcom?

Hi, I bought the G4 for my pregnancy (out of pocket, no insurance) and it was a life saver. My baby girl was born December 10th. It was a great pregnancy and labor (thanks to the G4). I will no longer use mine, since it's too expensive to buy everything out of pocket. What should I do with it. The transmitter is new, since I had to replace it late November. I have no sensors left. I still used my G4 for about a month after my baby was born. Just to keep a close eye, since I'm exclusively…See More

Hey, congrats on the good news! I am 32 almost 33 weeks and my blood sugars have been pretty good throughout the whole pregnancy...I have occasional highs but for the most part I find I am low most of the time..especially in the first trimester and half of the second. As long as you're ranging where you should be...an occasional high shouldn't be a problem. Is this your first?

Hi Norma, I'm sorry I just accepted your friend request. I had a baby in December and it's been busy, busy ever since. I finally feel like my head is above water. I look forward to chatting with you in the future. Welcome to tudiabetes! I love this wonderful group of people they have helped so much.

i find apples to be a great snack. 15g cho and do not raise BG like other fruits. Good for bowels too.

We are all Nut freaks!
