Things That Make Me Say Yeay

Friday, November 4, 2011

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.

I have been OBSESSED with orange flavored tic tacs.

These two boys mowing Grandpa's grass (weeds).

A new cozy sweater that I have been wearing everywhere.

Have a wonderful weekend! Any fun plans? I plan on relaxing and not doing anything...love those kind of weekends.

I always love seeing your weekly things that make you say yeah! That sweater looks so comfy and cozy. Hope you have a great weekend. Unfortunately, I have to work an event for work tomorrow (boo to a6 day work week!)

One of my closest and oldest friends has Type 1 diabetes - her story is really interesting because she wasn't diagnosed until age 21 and under some really heart-breaking circumstances. She recently got a glucose pump and it seems like it's totally changed her life. It's amazing what such a little device can do. She is also pregnant right now and I can't even imagine how reassuring that constant monitoring must be.

Max is just about as cute as can be! Kids and Halloween get me every time :)

That sweater looks too comfy! I'm rotating my closet this weekend and hopefully adding another fall item or two if I can find time to go shopping.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Anna Elder said...

Seriously, I'm amazed by medical technology. That device might be the coolest thing ever. I love orange tic-tacs. I actually can't buy them because I'll just dump the whole thing in my mouth at once. Sweater season is the best. I love being cozy in sweaters - love the one you bought!

Gail @ Sophisticated Steps said...

I think the benefits of what that's incredible little device will do for you far outweighs the 2nd belly button. Haha! Everything in perspective, right? It really is so great! What a blessing to have that!

And I think few things match up to the warm and fuzzy feeling of a great sweater. Of course, it helps of you don't live in South FL. Ugh. Mail me some cool weather. Please??? ;)

You know, the Diabetes Blogosphere is pretty popular and motivating. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes almost one year ago, and I am very thankful for all the blogs out there that offer good advice and support. Have you ever thought about blogging more about your diabetes management? I love finding new diabetes bloggers. I'd been reading your blog for awhile, and when I first saw you mention your diabetes, I got a little excited! Not that I"m glad you have this horrible disease, just that I love seeing healthy, happy women (who have children!) living with this disease. It is very encouraging!

Peyton said...

I also wear a CGM as a type 1 diabetic and 37 weeks pregnant with my third. It has been great for helping me along the way with this pregnancy and trying to deal with two other toddlers at the same time! Good luck to you! I know it can be trying, but it is totally worth it!!

Ashlee said...

natasha {schue love} said...
