I have type 1 diabetes and have been a diabetic for 16 years. Today was a tough day in regard to my blood sugars. They were on the higher side almost all day. I wear an insulin pump to control my diabetes and so I have insulin available 24/7. I checked my blood sugars a lot today and kept giving insulin to bring my blood sugars down, but they just didn't want to come down. I realized that maybe my insulin had gone bad in my pump. I changed out the insulin and that is all that was needed. My blood sugars are now doing good again. I really try to make sure I keep them under excellent control. When they go crazy it makes me uncomfortable. I have been so blessed to have been able to control my blood sugars very well during this pregnancy so far. I'm surprised about that since I'm carrying 6 babies. Having type 1 diabetes during pregnancy is hard, but good control can be achieved.
