Was it after an infusion change? I've had my pump 3 weeks and had 2 kinked cannula's already (guess I found a muscle). I always check 2 hours after change (I do this after a meal)

You have to be careful...you and baby can't tolerate severe highs...nor severe lows. Keep communicating with providers. Keep checking sugar. Hang on! ;)

The past 2 weeks have had nothing but hypos. But it tends to happen when working or when I have tea or go bed. I m in touch with my dsn every week. She changes my ratios so much as well as my leveimer

With my pregnancy with my son, I had a hypo daily if not more. You need less insulin during your first trimester and after the first, you will need more. Are you eating low GI foods?

Been told to carb count as normal and take some off when working but still hypoing. Yeah I am but I ain't got a big appetite as serving severe nausea

Can they reduce your basal?
