Re: [IPk] sites and insertion



Hiya Susan,

I have already sent Di a message about injection sites and pregnancy - like
you I have only ever put them into my abdomen, - Molly was one yesterday and
I still have plenty to go at...
I use rapid sets because of my stretch marks - seemessages aboutabsorption
problems, but had absolutely no problems during and after my pregnancy.
I even kept my pump attached and working during my C-section - just moved
the canula further round so it didn't get in the way!

Good luck with everything - make sure you get plenty of sleep now...
