RE: [IP] Pregnant & low BGs....

That was another amazingly timed email for me!  
I was just about to send out my message about when to expect lows during pregnancy!
I'm in week 7 of my first pregnancy and today I've been low at least 4 or 5 times!  
I'd like to ask all you pumper moms/pregnant ladies out there if you encountered this, when and for how long?
And how you handled it?  Did you just eat to cover the lows or did you reduce your basals?  
I am leery of reducing my basals since I'm tending to be more concerned with high BGs.
My other LOW BG question is are there risks associated with low BGs during pregnancy like there are associated with highs?
The annoying coincidence is that I'm in the middle of the nausea days and some food makes me want to gag:-)!
MANY THANKS in advance for any and all feedback!!

<<< Early on in the pregnancy, as is typical with diabetics at around 10-14 weeks, I had some pretty bad lows due to increased insulin sensitivity.>>>
