Pump broke and I am 16 weeks

Hey everyone! I am 16 weeks pregnant and my pump has broken and so for the next 24 hours or so I am on shots =(. I have read a lot of places that Lantus is not safe but that is what my endo has prescribed but I think it is because I was on it before and we know it works well with me. I have been known for other stuff to not work like NPH was just HORRIBLE and homolog doesn't work either. Anyone here took Lantus while pregnant? Just being really cautious.See More

Roark replied to Kendyl's discussion 'ping has crack in it' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Animas generally is pretty good about replacing pumps, but if the crack is due to overtorqueing the battery cap or reservoir nut, you may be in for a fight. Or maybe a reduced-rate repair. Only one way to find out. :)"

"They replaced mine when I mine had the rubbery covering on the buttons come off. And I was out of warranty, although we were in the process of getting a new one anyways."

Katy replied to Kendyl's discussion 'Anyone with thyroid problems too?' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"I also have Hashimoto's disease and didn't have a hard time getting preg (tried for 4 months). What you can expect though is constant monitoring of your thyroid levels once you do get preg. I've had my dosages increase 2x already and…"

Tell us more about you (optional)
I am a 24 year old student studying History and Anthropology. So I guess you could call me a hippy. I am a daughter to some amazing parents and sister to two wonderful older brothers who have always had my back. This nuclear family unit of mine has helped shape me into the confident (sometimes over confident) person I am. I am aunt to 6 amazing nephews and a wonderfully sassy little niece. And these little people are probably my favorite little people. They have taught me patience and to never forget to sometimes be a kid myself. I am also married to a spectacular guy. He has been there and continues to be there through thick and thin. He has been there to support me through my triumphs and to pick up the pieces as my world seems to fall apart.
