I have an insulin pump and a cgm. I have found that I hit veins easier because my belly is tighter and there's not as much flabbyness Lol but I haven't found it to much different to find spots! The cgm that I have is amazing for detecting when lows are going to happen because it alerts me when im going to go low.. I'm not sure about how the pump alone would change that but I do know that the pump gives more flexibility and has helped my numbers tremendously I have been on the pump for 10 years now.. this pregnancy has been slightly hard with the insulin resistance but getting better. Good luck!! Baby dust to you to get that BFP! If you need someone to talk to I'm here because I would love a buddy with type 1
I go through 300-400 easily in a day and a half changing my cartridge at least every other day. My basals have increased by 1-2 units each basal and my carb to gram ratio is now 1:5 when it used to be 1:15.. I'm still suffering with highs too. Today it got to 260 its 110 right now though! I feel so guilty my poor baby is suffering because I cant get my sugars under control today I had to give myself 38 units for a 73 gram meal :/ but it'll all be worth it in the end! I get a growth scan next week to see how big hes gotten and I'm scared to get a bad answer :/
