I have been a Type 1 for 4 years. I have already had one pregnancy (my daughter is 2 1/2) and we're starting to think about baby #2. I currently use the Minimed 722 which I used with my last pregnancy. I am thinking about making the switch to Animas since I am due for a new pump in a few months. With my minimed the reservoir holds 300 units. However the Animas only holds 200. With the increased insulin needs later in the pregnancy, how did any of you deal with this? Change site more often? If so how did your insurance respond to the extra sets you needed?
I currently have a TDD of about 50-55 units. So, as it is to go down to a 200 unit reservoir is "tight" so I'm worried how it would be during pregnancy... I am just in the beginning stages of researching for a new pump. I am attracted to the Animas because of the 1) Meter/Remote 2)waterproof 3)color screen 4)partnership with Dexcom
Also I am interested in getting a CGM. I have done a trial with the Minimed CGM and I was not impressed. I'm hoping to try the Dexcom to compare, but I've heard good things about it.
Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated!
