So what exactly is this bumble bee looking device? Its a life saver...literally. It is called a continuous glucose monitoring system. It attaches to my stomach and I wear it 24 hours a day while pregnant. It uses wireless technology and displays my blood sugar readings on my insulin pump every five minutes. My new sensor just came in the mail this week and I could not be more excited....even if it does look like I have two belly buttons (which my nephew pointed out).
Max was Max from Where The Wild Things Are for Halloween. I felt like it was a pretty fitting little costume.
