Good morning! My bg often gets a bit low during the weekend mornings bc I use to eat breakfast about 3h later than I use to do. Thankfully it never gets lower than 3,0 mmol/l (54mg/dl)πŸ’ͺ

Bumpdate:: Yesterday marked #thirtythreeweeks of #annacatebaby. I very much resonate with one of my dearest friends (@elenireid)'s post at this exact mark of her pregnancy last fall, when she said baby Michael was 16lbs and 58 inches. (πŸ˜‚) My honest answer to inquiring minds on how I am is uncomfortable. Julianna Cate has gotten to the point where she can skillfully kick me in the ribcage and my back simultaneously. She's estimated to be 6+ pounds already (#diabeticprobs) and is somewhere in the 80-97th percentile for growth. 😳 Her heart rate this morning was 155bpm and fortunately she complied with prodding to practice her breathing (finally). I feel like she's bigger than a basketball -- more like a BEACH ball -- and the weight of all of it makes for some major posture problems and joint pain. I'm honestly surprised my ribs and groin haven't just split from the pressure on my poor bones, but then again the whole thing is truly miraculous and mind-blowing how the human body accommodates growing a new person. Craving ice and unsweetened cereal with milk (which I can't have). Nesting efforts include our dining room reno, ordering her crib mattress and llama sheets, picking up a baby swing from a BST group, ordering/assembling my super legit Chicco Bravo-for-2 double stroller, and applying for life insurance policies. Thinking about Lilly meeting her for the first time brings me to happy tears. Sleep is uncomfortable but I need beacoups of it. Still waiting to get our car back from the shop. Need to make it past next weekend for important wedding meetings, and then this baby can hurry on out. Grateful, tired, "everything hurts and I'm dying", sooooooo appreciative of Drew, and very excited for the new chapters of life to come.

#maleassociatemonday he should be happy I can smell insulin otherwise he'd probably still be throwing up the contents of his stomach #diabeticprobs πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜

Sometimes I feel like a robot will all this random stuff on me..... #diabeticprobs

I mean I always knew the Kardashians were not very bright, but this just takes it to a whole new level. Another classic example of diabetics being grouped into one category. This is why no one realizes why Type 1 diabetes is a big deal, because no one takes the time to differentiate between TYPE 1 and TYPE 2 diabetes. You cannot cure Type 1 with a magical vegetable that you pulled out of your butt... πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„ #endrant #diabetes #typeonediabetes #diabeticprobs #duckfiabetes

The scary moment when I almost gave myself 50 units of humalog instead of Tresiba 😳 #southerndiabetic #insulin #diabeticlife #diabeticgirl #diabeticprobs #diabetesprobs #diabeticgirlprobs #humalog #tresiba #itsbeenalongday #closecall

Can't stand idiot people I have no patience now days #stupidpeople #rude #diabeticgirl #diabeticprobs #diabetic

Loving the temp basal option on my Omnipod! For workouts it's been amazing. I spike when I run and used to take insulin pre run and now I can just increase my temp basal (generally 20-30%) to what works depending on my current BG and last bolus, it's such a great feature! I was so happy with my BG on this morning's run:). And for spin class I reduce it by 30% for 1.5hrs (30mins pre class) and it's been working like a charm! Bootcamp is still a work progress! This feature makes me so happy! #omnipod #insulinpumper #dexcom #mynewpancreas #diabeticprobs #diabeticfitness

Good morning β˜€οΈ I didn't have the best night of sleep because of my workout yesterday even though I had my pump on -30% basal all night 😩

#itsnotaboutsugar Some people think that diabetics only need to eat better... or not eat sugar.. but that is NOT the case. They NEED insulin to stay alive.
If a type 1 diabetic eats an apple, they need insulin... This image shows that insulin is needed for almost all foods, healthy foods!! Calculations are based off of the Carbohydrates in food, NOT sugar. Even sugar free foods have Carbohydrates!
Each type 1 diabetic has a different carb calculation and it changes frequently! Madi needs 1 unit of insulin for every 19 carbs she eats. (Craig at age 16 needs 1 unit of insulin for every 9 carbs he eats) #t1dlookslikeme #t1d #t1dπŸ’‰ #t1dlife #type1diabetes #diabetesawareness #diabetes #type1strong #type1diabetic #carbcounting #insulin #insulindependant #diabeticprobs #heroesoftype1 #terilynephotography #typeonediabetic #typeonediabetes #typeonestrong

Low blood sugar turns one into a starved lion who has just been given a scrap of meat.

Have you ever seen a girl so excited for the grand opening of a grocery store...? Probably the highlight of my week (is that sad?) πŸ™ˆ
