Re: [IP] pregnancy, pumping and weight gain

    Congratulations on the pregnancy! Boy am I envious! I cannot have
children, so you are very blessed.
    As far as gaining weight on the pump, That has happened to me, in fact
it still is! :O(
    I believe that 1>insulin itself puts the weight on so having to use
extra insulin for tighter control is a big factor...2>The freedom of being
able to eat almost everything goes to the head (among other
places!)...3>Obsessing about food is an everyday thing, after all, we do
have to eat to survive, and you ARE now eating for two (or more?)!
    Good luck! And keep us posted on how your pregnancy progresses!


Yesterday is in the past...
Tomorrow has yet to come...
Today is a gift, that is why we call it...THE PRESENT!
