[IP] anti-pumper doc

Have any of you ever experienced a doctor who discouraged use of the
pump?  I am 6 weeks pregnant, and just saw my risk specialist OB today.
He said he had better luck controlling his patients with mixed insulin
dosages.  He also advocates the exchange diet over carb-counting.  I am
not switching off the pump yet -- we're going to see how I do with a
more strictly-controlled diet -- but I can't say I agree with his
anti-pump philosophy.  He seems to think the pump is a reactionary
approach to blood sugars, and not proactive.  This is the opposite of
what I have always heard.  Do any of you have any thoughts on this?
