Just wanted to share an anecdote--one that never would have been possible for me pre-pump.
I went to bed last night with a sore throat and woke up this a.m. with a full-fledged cold--headache, sore throat, no energy, stuffy, and generally feeling like crap. I got up briefly to call in and make a cup of tea, then fell back asleep until 1 p.m. When I woke up the 2nd time, I realized I hadn't tested in the a.m., which meant I had been more than 12 hours without testing. My bg at 1 p.m.: 125! That's a better basal test than I could have imagined. Not all days are like this, and my blood sugars still bounce a good bit, but it's always nice to have one of these YES!! moments.
