Congratulations on your pregnancy! Don't let being diabetic and pregnant stress you too much. I have two beautiful, healthy children. One was just born in July. I think I'm adjusting ok to the pump, its all so new still. and wow seeing the one touch 2 on your pics took me way back
Morning Melissa....well almost afternoon! How you doing today? Is that baby moving on you today? When (and now) my oldest was pg with her 2 girls they (and this boy comming) had their days and night mixed up. They would (and are) moving at night when she would lie down to go to sleep! HA!! But don't forget here she worked 3-11 or 11-7 the whole time and still is! HA! My granddaughters LOVE to keep nanny awake til around 2 AM then sleep til 10 or 11 the next day! Not so good with me! I like to go to sleep around 9 PM and get up at around &! Oh well just life. HUH???
Hi Melissa, I was wondering how you like the Omni pod. I am also facing the problem of changing to a new pump. I love the Cozmo pump. My choices are the omni or Animas. I was also pregnant with a baby boy with diabetes. Everything turned out great. I always took care of myself. Just the thought of taking extra care of yourself and looking into your babies eyes makes the experience that much better. I just started the Freestyle CGM about 2 months ago and it is great. Good luck
Wow, you got quite the deal with Omnipod thats great!! I am glad to hear things are going well with the pregnancy congrats!! I wish you the best of luck and thanks for the info, I have to start looking into other pumps soon.
Great news Melissa!!! I didn't know it. Do you know yet if its a boy or girl?? Do you have the name picked out?? My oldest (who is a Type 1 too) is having her 3rd in January and it's a boy after 2 girls. She had his name picked out for 3 years...Aden! How's your bs and being pg? Hope all is fine!! SOOOOO GLAD TO HEAR THAT!!!!!
Thanks! Glad to see we've made it this long! I was glancing through some of your blogs and it seems we've traveled down similar paths. I look forward to sharing some of my adventures and making some new friends along the way.
And a Hello for you too, MelissaBL. Thanks for the welcome from you and Teena.
I need to learn some about the BIG D, I have just been ignoring it pretty much. There is such a large percentage of us that have T1or T2, especially T2 that don't even know they have it. And it IS a REAL killer. I will kick back and read the posts for a while, a few days, weeks or months... so that when I do speak, it won't look like I am a total fool about it.
I had a problem with breathing so I took 20MGs of Prednisone for a couple years and then 10MGs for another couple of years and that sure was nice to me as far as the weight department is concerned. Added about 150lbs to my weight and now it doesn't want to come off. But I notice that being fat really helps with becoming diabetic.
So, now I am here to learn... hopefully.
Thank you again for the welcome Melissa.
Ken Chevy ... I love Chevy cars and pickups so much that I legally changed my last name to Chevy! How is that for being cool? LOL
Hi - my Grandfather has diabetes and he is getting older and I just want to understand if this will begin to take a greater toll on him as he is getting on in years. He just had to have some of his toes cut off (I know not the worst thing in the world at 91) and it really opened my eyes. Just want to know how bad of a sign this may (or hopefully may not) be. Thanks
