I actual have several questions that I have been meaning to ask on this site. Quick background - 26 yr old T1D, diagnosed in 2012, use a Medtronic insulin pump.
1) Did anyone experience some intense lows within the first few months of pregnancy? I am 16 weeks and am still having a hard time managing lows at times. I am sure it is different with everyone, but at what point during your pregnancy did you start to see that you were having to increase your insulin intake? So far I have actually had to lower one of my basal rates, and that is it. I am expecting that to change fairly soon, but it just hasn't been the case yet.
2) This is kind of a silly question, but I have finally started to wear maternity clothes (I have been sick for months and am just now starting to gain weight), and am wondering what type of maternity jeans insulin pump users prefer? I seem to mainly come across the full panel that completely covers the stomach, and am wondering how this works with an insulin pump? I typically clip my pump on to my jeans at the top, and obviously won't be able to do that with these. I haven't found a single pair yet that I like or that works for me. And the rubberband trick with my normal jeans will only hold me for a few more weeks.
Thanks in advance for any advice anyone is able to give! :)
