Because I am a hormonally-charged, pregnant woman; I am allowed to change my mind at the drop of a hat, do a total 180, and proclaim my undying love for this beautiful machine.
Wanna see why?
These readings are from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm tonight, and includes her post-dinner numbers. Pretty, no?
Since we calibrated this marvelous collection of microchips and other things I don't understand, we've seen a pretty straight line; numbers from 112 with a spike only up to 260 (post bed time snack, after she fell asleep).
I love that I now know that our idea of giving her her rapid acting insulin 30 minutes before dinner stops the 7:00 pm spike.
I love that when I checked her pre-dinner number on her regular meter, there was only a 2 point difference from the CGM (the most we've seen so far is a 40 point difference and the Dexcom was the lower value).
I love that when she slept until 8:15 this morning, I could leave her knowing full well her BG was okay.
I love that I got more than 4 hours sleep last night, waking only once at 3:30 to look at the CGM, the do a quick check to make sure it was telling me the truth (it was).
I feel as giddy as a school girl with my first crush.
Of course, if it does anything to tick me off, I reserve the right to dump it's ass quicker than you can say hot flash.
