"Hey Christy Ya I'm really looking forward to an easier pregnancy this time with the pump and cgms. I had a lot of lows as well last time, 5-6 a day when it was bad. Lost all hypo awareness. Fingers crossed it shouldn't be so bad this time."

christy replied to KatieBoo's discussion '5 weeks Pregnant!'
