We're expecting baby #2 in February 2020!
This time around I'm doing pregnancy a bit differently. Still seeing my hospital's Special Pregnancy Unit every 2-3 weeks, still doing set changes every other day because I'm using so much insulin, still riding the BG rollercoasters when the nausea kicks in and I can't keep food down... but this time, I've got Loop on my team.
Loop is fantastic. Loop adjusts me back into target without requiring my input. Loop makes sure I wake up at a steady 4.4 every morning -- something I can't achieve on my own without scheduling multiple overnight bg checks.
I've got to say, after Looping for an few months I don't think I could ever go back!

Ahh, the weekend.
Not much of an update today. I spent most of the day grumbling about a sore wrist and high BGs from the steroid.
I didn't particularly feel like giving my meter the satisfaction of taking pictures of it when it gave me such unpleasant #s, so here's a pic of the offending wrist instead:
Today was an exciting day for me! I visited the hand surgeon, who confirmed that the trigger thumb on my right hand has responded very well to the steroid injection I had in June. So well, in fact, that she's no longer recommending surgery :-D.
I also was lucky enough to talk to her about my left wrist. My GP dx'd my wrist with De Quervain's syndrome in September, and recommended ice and rest. No improvement there, so today's photo is the prep for the steroid injection I had in my left wrist:
I've got a few daily photo posts to catch up on, but want to take a moment to acknowledge the day. Hoping everyone had a safe and healthy WDD2018.
The last few days have been busy! Baby and I have been out to all sorts of appointments this week. Methinks a carb ratio change is in order, as breakfast left me low and unable to drive for 3 days this week.
So we sit, patiently waiting for the juice to kick in.
It's late and I'm tired, so have a #bgnow, courtesy of my METER BG NOW alarm:
Good enough for overnight
A little bit late, but here's today's photo. I found this when changing my infusion site. I guess this explains why it hurt to bolus...
Today's photo is about hopefully learning from yesterday's not-bolusing mistakes:
That, in case you can't tell, is a new batch of brownies that are alllllmost done. I promised myself I'll remember to pre-bolus this time ;-).
Today is the first day of November, Diabetes Month. To highlight the ups and downs (lol) of living with diabetes, I'm participating in the daily photo challenge. Check out http://makediabetesvisible.com/ for more info.
For day 1:
Husband and I went out for a wonderful dinner at a friend's place. I bolused for dinner, everything was fine... then came dessert. Forgetting to bolus for a dessert brownie left me here:
