I was wondering if anyone had any advice for what to do with my pump during deliver (I’m 25 weeks)? I’ve heard during delivery it is very unlikely that I will need any insulin at all, some people have even told me they did not need any for a few days after they got home from the hospital. I asked one of my nurses what they recommend and they said to remove my pump and they will monitor my insulin needs by “accu-checks”. I seriously can’t believe they still use the old school accu-checks that are the size of a book but they do! I told her I would like to keep my CGM on if at all possible and she did not see a problem with that but said they will remove my pump and give me insulin in an IV. I asked to make sure and it will be fast acting insulin only in the IV. My doctor so far as been great accommodating my requests (as much as possible) so I think if I asked for soothing else they would try to accommodate but I’m not sure if just taking off my pump is the best thing or not?
Thanks for any advise!
