Any T1 diabetics wait beyond 40 weeks to go into labour naturally or even be induced?

Hi ladies, preparing for the arrival of baby #2. With my first I ended up with an induction at 40 weeks which resulted in c-section. My ob won't induce me again because it's only 16 months since my c-section. She wants to section at 38 weeks. I want to push her to 40 weeks but I'd rather just wait until I go into labour naturally, I really don't want another section. Has anyone here waited until 40+ weeks to go into labour naturally? I'm really desperate to manage a vbac this time!See More

Sharon,

If you are traveling with airline tickets and an itinerary from them or a travel site like Expedia, etc, you should be able to ask your insurance company for a "vacation override". In general, you have it correct 2X supplies, but take it with a grain of salt. I always carry double the infusion sets and insulin, but maybe only 1.5X the insulin reservoirs, batteries, etc.

Welcome to TuDiabetes! Check out some of the groups on the site. It is a great way to get to know the community. I recently switched to the pump from MDI. About 6 weeks now. I really like it.
