where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Does anyone know if your pregnant and you are due a pump, does it affect you or the baby in any way?

What do you mean, you are just getting a pump? It will help control your sugar better. Good for you and the baby. My pump came while I was pregnant but delivered 12 weeks premature so didn't have time to get on it until after the baby and I love it!! Good luck

Had my pump during both pregnancies. Delivered both at 36 weeks. I and both girls are in perfect health (oldest is 18 and youngest is 14 now ). I still love my pump!

I was on it for both pregnancies. I delivered both at 38wks. Both my babies weighed in at 11 lbs! But that was long ago...wouldn't trade the pump for anything!

The more out of control your blood sugars the bigger the baby and the more chance of baby not being healthy when it comes out

****that may be partially true. When I had my first 31 years ago I was a new T1 and she was 9.11 induced at 36 weeks because of her size. I was not taught back then how to take care of my T1,
